Boys Varsity Baseball · Hunter Bufkin’s big offensive night propels Patriots to 4-3 victory over St. Paul’s

With the score knotted up at 1-1 and with LSU commit Jacob Scherer on the mound for the St. Paul’s Wolves, Hunter Bufkin stepped to the plate with Cade Beloso at 1st and Dax Ford at 2nd. He promptly delivered a line drive to center field to score both runners and give the Patriots at 3-1 lead. Senior Ian Landreneau did his best to limit the Wolves on the scoreboard and pitched into the 4th inning,¬†entrusting fellow senior Will Ripoll with a 3-2 lead. Ripoll did his best, yielding just one unearned run in the 7th inning. Bufkin would also provide the fourth, and deciding, run of the game for the Patriots when he scorched a ball down the third base line scoring Dax Ford from second base. Bufkin would cap off his 3-4, 3 RBI night by getting a base hit in the 7th inning.
