Close calls in a lopsided JV loss

In a game with a number of close calls by the umpires and missed opportunities by the Floyd County Buffaloes junior varsity baseball team Monday, Carroll County cruises to a 10-1 victory on the FCHS home field.

A missed line drive to right field that went to the fence or a call at first base by the umpire at first base that could have gone either way might have made the difference in a run or two in the final score but the decisive outcome meant little change in the won or loss column.

Still, a hard-fought game under a bright sun on an afternoon when the thermometer climbed above 70 and Spring appeared to be in the air.

And the varsity game that followed was both closer and had a different outcome.  A three-run double by Matt Bary in the sixth inning led to a 7-5 win by the Buffaloes over Carroll.
