The Carlisle Bison baseball team swept both ends of a doubleheader last week to improve to 2-3 overall and 2-2 in 2A-6 conference play.

In the first game, Bison pitcher Jacob Gordon had a career night as he gave up only two runs — both unearned — while striking out a 14 in the win. Gordon allowed only two hits in seven innings of work.

After falling behind 1-0 in the top of the first, the Bison responded with four runs in the bottom of the frame to lead 4-1. Josh Mathis led off with a single. Chance Richards followed with a walk. After a flyout by Tyler Young, Gordon singled, driving in Mathis with the tying run.

Jaden Daniels followed with a single, driving in Richards and Gordon. After a walk to Dylan Brazeal, Nick Schafer singled, driving in Daniels with the fourth run of the inning.

The Bison scored single runs in the second and third innings. Mathis led off the second by being hit by a pitch. He eventually scored on a ground out by Daniels.

Schafer led off the third with a triple and scored on a single by Thomas McCallie.

Gordon and Schafer both went 2 for 4 in the victory.

In the second game, Mathis threw a five-inning complete game shut out. He struck out 10 while allowing only two hits.

Young bounced back from a 0-for-4 performance in the first game to go 3 for 4 with two runs scored and three RBIs.

The Bison scored two runs in the first inning. Mathis singled and scored on a single by Young, who scored on a passed ball.

Carlisle then scored four runs in the second to lead 6-0. Scoring were Schafer, McCallie, Bradley Elder and Mathis.

The Bison scored four more times in the fourth inning. Young had a two-run triple in the inning. Scoring were Mathis, who had three runs, Richards, Young and Daniels.
