A CLASSIC GAME ENDS IN A 6-5 WALK OFF WIN FOR MERCHANTS
The Richardson Pioneer Mens Fastball League dodged some storms with some dry weather in Foam Lake Thursday Night. The Rosebud Royals visited the Foam Lake Merchants in an exiting game. The Merchants jumped out of the gates with their first two batters scoring in the bottom of the first. The Royals answered back with two of their own in the top of the second. The back and forth game ended up with the Royals down one going into the top of the final inning. The Rosebud squad battled for two runs to take the lead. With their last chance the Merchants loaded the bases and scored the winning run on a Graham Ferrell walk off single.
