Drew Brannon hit a walk-off double in the ninth inning Monday afternoon to keep Hempfield East alive in the Region 7 American Legion double-elimination tournament in Clearfield.

The hit scored Garrett Stevenson and lifted Hempfield East to a 6-5 win over Bedford.

Hempfield East (20-5), which lost to Clearfield, 22-3, on Sunday, plays Beech Creek on Tuesday.

Claysburg 5, Bushy Run 3 — Bushy Run had its season come to an end after a narrow loss to Claysburg.

Casey Winters' two-run homer in the bottom of the seventh sealed the victory. Winters had three hits and earned the victory.

Andrew Giesey had a double and single for District 31 champion Bushy Run, which finished the season 21-5.

“We have no excuses,” Bushy Run manager Scott Peyman said. “We just didn't hit the ball. It was still a fantastic season. I don't know what the kids expected, but I'm really proud of them.”

Claysburg will play Clearfield on Tuesday.
