Bad Day at KV

Bishop Baseball and Softball drop 3 to Rival KV

Plenty of sunshine at Lake Isabella this past Friday, but Bronco runs where as sparse as the waters of the nearby lake.  With Lake Isabella at historically low levels, bishop dropped both softball games and  the varsity baseball game.  Bishop Union’s varsity teams managed just 2 combined runs.  The lone win Friday was a bronco JV baseball victory.  It’s not all doom and gloom as the Broncos hit Easter break, Bishop was competitive in all the ball games with two more shots at their rivals.  Bishop will wrap up the regular season with a two game set with KV, Tuesday, May 5th and Thursday May 7th.   At Easter Break Bishop varsity baseball and softball teams are even with KV with one High Desert League loss, with everyone trailing league leader Rosamond.  Both Rosamond baseball and softball teams are unbeaten in HDL play at the break.  Bishop will return to HDL play on Tuesday, April 7th with a trip to Rosamond.  All bronco boys varsity baseball games are broadcast live on AM 1230 KBOV and streamed live here at kibskbov.com.

KV   10

Bishop scored a run in the top of the 1st inning thanks to a pair of bunt singles by Jeremy Fie and Jake Traynor, and a RBI ground out by Justin Hollowell.  But that would be all the broncos could scratch out against KV starter Dalton Gallis.  Gallis struck out 11 broncos earning the complete game victory.

Scoreless dual through 3 and a half innings, KV broke through for 3 runs in the bottom of the 4th, and added a run in the 6th.  Bishop would break through in the top of the 7th, but fall short 4-1.  Coach Mike Jones, “Our hitting was not up to par today, we were watching too many balls go by, we have been averaging about 3 strikeouts per game, we had 12 today.”  Sam Riesen was the hard luck losing pitcher striking out 5 and allowing just one ball to be hit out of the infield.

Broncos Steal 2 Games in Frazier

Bishop Softball and Baseball need late rallies to win

A windy and cold day in Frazier Mt Tuesday was nothing new,  the come from behind victories however, were.  Both varsity baseball and softball had to rally late to pull off come from behind wins Tuesday.  Cold temperatures and vicious winds plagued a sun soaked day.

The Bishop Union High School baseball team scratched out a run in the 7th to tie the game at 2 forcing an extra inning where the bronco bats came alive striking for 7 runs.  Aaron Chinzi pitched a complete game striking out 15 falcons.  Chinzi allowed just 5 hits and  2 runs, only one run was earned.  The Junior had fantastic control allowing no walks, and did not have a three ball count on a falcon until the 8th inning.  Chinzi and catcher Colton Riesen kept the falcons off balance all day.  Riesen also helped his pitcher by throwing out two would be base stealers.

Offensively the broncos were led by freshman Brodie Maloney.  The first baseman doubled in Bishop’s first run in the 3rd inning and drove in the run in the 7th that kept the Broncos alive.  Maloney also singled in an insurance run in the 7-run 8th.  Sophomore call up Patrick Mitton reached base twice scoring both broncos runs in regulation.  Alex Sipes and Justin Hollowell were a big part of the 8th inning collecting RBI doubles but the big blast in the 8th was a bases loaded triple for Colton Riesen.

While Chinzi won the game on the hill for the Broncos, Kevin Holcomb was the hard luck loser from Frazier Mt.  Holcomb and Chinzi locked into a great dual, but Holcomb was pulled after the 7th and the Broncos lit up the falcon bullpen for 7 runs on 5 hits.

The Broncos will now prepare for a trip to rival Kern Valley.  The forecast is calling for high temperatures in the upper 80s Friday, which will be a nice change from Tuesdays frigid conditions.
