Buffaloes come out on top of Rotan in 12-0 shutout

The Forsan Buffaloes varsity baseball team faced off with the Rotan Yellowhammers in a district matchup Tuesday night and ended the game in just four and a half innings, shutting out Rotan 12-0.
“I think we had another good game at the plate,” said head baseball coach Stephen East. “Lane Schafer’s home run really gave us an extra spark.”
Forsan collected a total of 12 hits for the game.
“Bryce Hergert did a great job on the mound tonight,” said East. “I think we played a solid defensive game considering the wind blowing at what felt like 40 mph the entire time.”
Hergert got the win for the Buffs. He pitched for four innings, surrendering zero runs, four hits, walked one, and struck out five. He also led the team in stolen bases, contributing four of the team’s nine.
“The guys are playing some great baseball right now and I am really pleased with their effort,” said East. “We have six days off until our next game and that will give us a chance to clean a couple of things up and get a bunch more cuts with the bats.”
Coming up, the Buffs will host Roby in a district matchup that will be held on Monday, April 10 at 7:00 p.m.
