Floyd hammers Grady, 14-4
The Floyd Broncos varsity baseball team blasted the Grady Bronchos, 14-4, in five innings on Wednesday.
Because of the 10-run rule, the game ended in five innings. The 10-run rule is invoked if a team is up by 10 or more runs after five innings. Floyd improved to 3-7 and now must keep its season alive with a home game against the Elida Tigers on Friday. Floyd is 1-2 in district play while Elida is 2-0 and Dora is 1-2. In order for Floyd to make it to the regional tournament, they must defeat Elida Friday. The game begins at 3 p.m.
“It’s do or die for us,” Floyd coach Cody May said. “It was a close game for a while. It was 3-1 at one point and 5-3, but we had one bad inning where we gave up six runs. We’ve improved since last year. We were 0-9 overall last year.”
Floyd pitchers Kyle Kropf and eighth-grader Chet Chenault combined for the victory.
May said the first time Floyd played Elida, the Broncos lost 11-5 in Elida. Floyd defeated Dora, 14-6, Monday to keep it’s postseason hopes alive.
