There was no shortage of runs Wednesday between Fred T. Foard and Bunker Hill on the baseball diamond.
In spite of that offense, a wild pitch by the Bearsâ€™ Justin Aiken allowed Foardâ€™s Jordan Fulbright to score, giving the Tigers an 11-10 win in Claremont.
â€śIt was all heart,â€ť said Foard coach Channon Vogel. â€śThese guys just fight and never give up. In our first game this year against Shelby, we were down three runs with two outs in the seventh inning. We came back and won that game. I knew if we stayed in this game, weâ€™d find a way to win.â€ť
