That’s no slight on the Lafayette Commodore right-hander, who also plays first base and is penciled in as the starting center on the football team, but more a credit to Hunter’s base running ability.
After the Commodores surrendered a two-run lead in the top of the sixth to the Urchins, Arrington singled up the middle with one out in the bottom of the frame and then D.K. Buford hit a scorcher past the EUHS second baseman. Hunter took off from first and rounded third before the relay throw from right field arrived in the infield. By the time the dust settled at home, the umpire threw out his arms to call the LHS pinch runner safe.
With the 5-4 walk-off win, the Commodores now advance to face Itawamba at 3:30 today. Win that game and Lafayette will find itself in the NEMCABB title game.
