BUFFALO, W.Va. — All it takes is one.
The Buffalo baseball team scored just one run in Tuesday night’s Class A, Region IV semifinal in Putnam County, but it was enough as the Bison shutout the visiting White Falcons to take the 1-0 win.
The Bison (18-11) pushed the lone run across in the third inning when Nick Gunter scored on a wildpitch. Wahama (17-10) failed to answer and Buffalo advanced to the Region IV final.
Aaron Lewis earned the win for Buffalo after striking out 14 in seven shutout innings, while surrendering three hits.
Wahama senior Hunter Bradley suffered the loss after allowing just one unearned run and three hits, while striking out five.
Wyatt Zuspan led Wahama with two hits in three attempts.
The Bison will host Gilmer County for a shot at the state tournament on Thursday.
The White Falcons had won four of their last five games and they finish the month of may with a record of 5-5. This marks the final game in the Red and White for seniors Kane Roush, Hunter Bradley, Wyatt Zuspan, Wesley Harrison and Jacob Bennett.
