It was not a good night for the Carlisle Bison baseball team.

The Bison (8-3) were swept by the Hazen Hornets 10-6 and 11-10 in a 2A-6 conference doubleheader at Rockefeller Park on Tuesday. With the losses, Carlisle drops to 3-3 in conference action. A year ago, the Bison lost only one conference game.

In the first game of the doubleheader, Hazen led 3-2 after one inning. With one out in the bottom of the first, Carlisle’s Chris Hart walked and Austin Reed singled. They both scored on a double by Dylan Brazeal.

The Hornets pushed their lead to 9-2 after four innings, plating two in the second, one in the third and three in the fourth.

The Bison tried to come back with four runs in the bottom of the fifth, cutting the deficit to 9-6. After a ground out by Tyler Young, Carlisle’s Josh Mathis singled. Hart followed with another single. Reed drove in Mathis with a single of his own. Deron Ricks then walked. Hart scored on a passed ball and Reed and Ricks scored on a single by Dylan Brazeal.

The Hornets then scored a run in the top of the sixth to lead 10-6.

Carlisle was retired in order in the sixth. Ricks walked with two outs in the bottom of the seventh but was stranded at first base to end the game.

In the second game, the Bison jumped out to a 10-2 lead only to see the Hornets rally to win 11-10.
