Broncos sweep Frazier Mt

Bishop Union Baseball and Softball take down Frazier

April 25, 2016
By Arnie Palu

Friday’s High Desert league home opening ball games began with sunshine and closed with wind and rain.  Bishop Union High School’s baseball and softball teams excelled in all weather conditions sweeping Frazier Mt.  The varsity boys and junior varsity girls put their games out of reach early with the varsity girls winning in walk off fashion.  The JV boys had the day off as Frazier Mt is not fielding a JV squad.
This week is a big one for the Broncos as they continue their home stand hosting rival Kern Valley Tuesday and Rosamond Friday.  The Varsity boys games are broadcast live on AM 1230 KBOV and streamed live here through the listen live link.

Rosamond outlasts Bishop in 13 inning thriller

Bishop Union falls to 2-3 in HDL with crushing loss

This High Desert League game had the feel of a must win for Bishop Union, and the scrappy Broncos pushed the unbeaten Roadrunners to 13 innings.  Down 1-0 heading into the 7th inning Bishop scratched out a run to stay alive, a theme that would be repeated three more times.  Colton Riesen scored on a wild pitch evening the game at 1-1.  The Broncos would answer Rosamond runs in the 8th, 10th, and 12 innings.  Rosamond would break through for 3 runs in the 13th, and Bishop’s luck would run out with the tying run on second base.  Rosamond left town with a marathon 7-6 win and the top spot in the High Desert League standings at 5-0.

Both starting pitchers were fantastic.  Bishop Union’s Justin Hollowell and Rosamond’s Tyler Herrick both worked 10 masterful innings.  Both seniors went the limit, only being pulled due to the CIF innings restriction.  Hollowell allowed 3 runs on 7 hits, striking out 8, and walking just 3.  Hollowell was economical with his pitches throwing 128 pitches in the 10 innings of work.  Herrick was great allowing 3 runs on 6 hits, striking out 10, and walking 1.  Herrick racking up 130 pitches in his 10 inning of work.  The Broncos really made Herrick play defense as the pitcher was forced to field a total of 8 ground balls.  The 8 chances coming on a combination of bunts and come-backers.  As good as both starting pitchers were, both took a no decision.  Bishop Union Alex Sipes worked three innings in relief giving up 4 runs on 6 hits.  Sipes was saddled with the loss, but kept Bishop in the game with a solo home run in the bottom of the 12th.  Zach Deprofio worked three innings for Rosamond picking up the win.

The Bronco defense was solid behind Hollowell with fine plays turned in by catch Colton Riesen, left fielder Clyde McCoy, third basemen Jake Traynor and first basemen Brodie Maloney.
