Walk-Off Homerun Wins LogRog Baseball first-round AAA Sectionals
Sophomore Second Baseman Chad Yates Strokes the long ball in the bottom of the 8th inning for the game winning, walk-off homerun as first year Skipper Brad Lotz (aka Nick Burns) watches from his third base coaching position. This marks the first time that LogRog Baseball has advanced beyond the District level...by beating Warrensburg 2-3 in this hard fought, first round Sectional battle.
Senior, ace pitching phenom, and MSU signed southpaw, Buddy Baumann struck out 15 in an impressive outing pitching all 8 innings and throwing upward of 110 pitches. He never lost any speed, control...and sparingly used his wicked change-up for several third stike pitches.
This marks only the second time Yates has gone yard all season.
LogRog will advance to Sectional Quarter Final Play to be hosted by Webb City at 5:00pm Saturday.
