Bringing down the powerhouse
When Rachael Bishop returned to the Fayette dugout in the top of the seventh inning, she had a huge smile on her face.
Why? The senior first baseman successfully laid down a bunt. Out of context, that may seem like an easy task for some, but given the circumstances, it was more than just a simple bunt.
Bishop’s bunt, compounded by two Sturgeon errors on the same play, brought home two Fayette runs. The Lady Falcons scored four runs in the top of the seventh inning, pulling off a 5-2 victory Thursday night at Sturgeon, last year’s Class 1 District 9 champion.
