Bronco Baseball

It’s Bronco Baseball Season

Bishop Bronco Baseball Victorious vs Mammoth

New season, new faces, new coaching strategies? Head Coach Steve Omohundro has upped the ante with push-ups! There are a few ways Bishop Bronco players earn the right of doing push ups during the game. One of those ways is strikeouts. If a Bronco player strikes out, he gets the pleasure of doing 10 pushups before entering the dugout…. I like it Coach “O”! Pushup pictures next game for sure.

The Bronco team left the bases loaded in the 1st inning without getting any runs, (no team pushups for that) but the bats came alive in the 2nd inning, lighting up the scoreboard for 6 runs.

Individual stats at the plate:

Mike Molina 1 for 4

Lorenzo Parra 1 for 4 with 2 RBI

Michael Kubiak 2 for 5 with 1 RBI

Hunter Beall 1 for 4

Matt Rosga 2 for 4

Brodie Maloney 2 for 4 with 2 RBI

Justin Yates 1 for 3

The Mammoth pitching was getting in more hits than anyone, nailing Bronco batters with pitches all afternoon. Early season control problems?

Senior pitcher Justin Yates pitched a good game going 5 2/3’s innings giving up 2 runs on 5 hits. Junior pitcher Austin Thomas came in and closed out the game with the final score of 9-2 Broncos.


Next up the annual Yerington tournament in Yerington Nevada.

Broncos VS Roadrunners

The Bishop Broncos hosted Rosamond for a High Desert league game on Friday at Bishop High School. Bronco pitcher Cade Pascale was tagged for 3 runs in the first two innings and then found his groove and pitched well.

Cade Pascale delivering in the 1st inning.

The Bronco batting was the downfall to this match up as Bishop came to the plate 29 times and managed just one hit by Druw Allen.

Kern Valley Varsity teams top Bishop Union

April 27, 2016
by Arnie Palu

Rival Kern Valley got the best of the Bishop Broncos Tuesday.  Kern Valley’s varsity baseball and softball teams topped Bishop via the 10-run mercy rule.  Bishop exacted a measure of revenge by winning both JV games.  Bishop Union will continue their home stand Friday hosting Rosamond.  The varsity boys game will be live on AM 1230 KBOV and streamed live here on the listen live link.

Bishop Union 3  (5 innings)

Kern Valley’s Zack Bushling hit a 1st inning breaking ball into the trees outside right field,the rest of his day would be a walk in the park.  Bushling’s 2-run home run started a 3-run first inning and set the stage for a KV win.  After allowing Bushling to rattle the tree limbs in the opening inning the Broncos walked him three times, twice walking Zack intentionally…with the bases loaded.  In a move of ultimate respect, or perhaps fear of property damage, the Broncos choose to walk in a run rather then allow the Kern Valley junior a chance to knock in multiple runs.   Following their 3-run first inning KV scored a single run in the 2nd, three more in the 3rd and blew the game open with a 8-run 4th inning effort.

Justin Yates, 4 innings pitched, 15 runs, 8 hits, 4 walks, 2 strikeouts.
