Visiting Coudersport scored all of its runs in one inning and went on to post a 6-4 victory. Here, the team warms up before the game. The Cameron County High School baseball season got underway Thursday night for both the Cameron County red raiders and the Coudersport Falcons.

The first two innings were scoreless, but the third inning proved to all the visiting Falcons would need in the 6-4 victory.

Coudersport scored all of its runs on two walks, a hit batsman and RBI singles by Kirk Duffee and Nate Burgett.

Cameron Clingan was the starting pitcher for Cameron County. He went three innings and took the loss.

Jordan Crane came on in relief and finished the final four innings, shutting the Falcons out the rest of the way.

Kyle Kockler tossed five innings for Coudersport, giving up two runs on RBI singles by Garrett Hornung and Shaun McManigle in the fifth inning.

Caleb Morris pitched the final two frames for Coudersport. He whiffed five, but gave up a two-run homer to McManigle that cut the visitor's lead to 6-4.

After Hornung walked, David Lyon ripped what looked like an extra base hit to right center, but an outstanding diving catching halted the rally.

McManigle was the hitting star for the Raiders, going three-for-three with a single, a double and a round-tripper. All he needed was a triple to hit for the cycle.

Cameron County will travel to Johnsonburg on Monday for a 4 p.m. game against the Rams.
