A bunt brings home the winning run for the Buffaloes

The move brought home the runner and sealed a 6-5 win over the Radford Bobcats

Call it a bunt and run. In the bottom of the seventh inning of the Region 2C quarterfinal match against Radford, Mitchell Thompson laid down a perfect bunt that brought Wyatt Chaffin scampering home to top off a comeback 6-5 victory and send the 8-5 Buffaloes to the semi-final.

The Buffaloes had tied the lead when Emery Chafin singled with the bases loaded after battling back in a game that Radford had led since the first inning with a single home run.

Quite a game. More photos and more details in next week’s Floyd Press.
