Cochranton earns another sweep

COCHRANTON — Cochranton nearly had carbon copy victorious linescores on Saturday.

Continuing its winning ways in 2014, Cochranton improved to 8-1 overall and 6-1 in the Crawford-Venango American Legion with a pair of 5-2 wins over Meadville on the Cochranton High School diamond.

In the first game, Cochranton scored three runs in the third inning and two in the fourth. In the second contest, the Big Blue unit put two runs on the board in the second and three in the third.

The Bluebirds had six hits in each game.

After Meadville scored two runs in the third inning in the opener, Cochranton countered with three in the bottom half.

Joel Mowris led off with a double, A.J. Nageotte walked and Caleb Peterson was hit by a pitch to load the bases. After Ryan Northcott plated Mowris with a sacrifice fly, Noah Mowris belted a two-run double.

“Noah hit a shot, it almost went out,” said Cochranton coach Randy Staudt.

Mowris was the igniter again in the second game.

Leading 2-1, Cochranton broke the game open with three runs in the third. Mowris led off with a single and Nageotte and Peterson belted RBI singles later in the inning. Jake Yarnell, who walked, stole home in the rally.

Cochranton relief pitcher Nate Klingler defused a Meadville rally in the seventh inning with some flame-throwing stuff.

After Meadville loaded the bases with none out, Staudt called upon Klingler to put out the fire. The right-hander did just that by striking out all three Meadville batters he faced.

The double-header sweep spoiled a strong offensive showing by Meadville’s Duncan Brode. He went three-for-four with two doubles in the first game and two-for-three with a solo home run and two runs scored in the second game.

The latest proposed expansion plan for the Crawford County Courthouse potentially would eliminate the former Tarr Mansion on Diamond Park to make room for a county administrative building. Should the 1860 mansion be demolished?

Leave it alone because it’s historic.
Try to incorporate it into the proposed expansion.
It’s too far gone to save, but it’s memory may be preserved with an artifacts and photo display within the proposed courthouse complex.
