Chesaning diamondmen lose, tie in doubleheader at Shepherd

SHEPHERD – Chesaning’s varsity baseball team was involved in a pair of tight contests last Tuesday as the Tribe lost an opening 6-5 decision to host Shepherd before battling the Bluejays to a 4-4 tie in the nightcap, which was called due to darkness.

A three-run double in the bottom of the seventh left Chesaning on the short end of a one-run verdict in the first game.

The Indians racked up 10 hits in the opener as Trent Devereaux, Kohl Qualls, Cole Higley, Jacob Turnwald and Garrett Powell accounted for all of the offensive fireworks with two hits apiece.

Behind 4-2, the Tribe rallied for two runs in the fifth to knot the contest at 4-all in Game Two. The contest was called after six innings of play due to darkness.

Michael James tossed all six frames for Chesaning, surrendering just four hits and three walks. Higley, Devereaux and Brendan Greenfelder each hit safely to account for all three of the Tribe’s hits.

At the end of the day, CHS stood at 6-8-1.
