the sec ond basemans head That was the hit we NBHS head coach Doug Edwards said With no outs the obvious strategy was to move Quid ley over the second by any means possible But for the second time in the game the Unicorns struck out trying to bunt after a leadoff single Austin Chandler stepped to the plate with one out and showed bunt on the first two pitches but let them both go by Then on a 11
