Buckingham baseball’s season ends in region quarters

Buckingham baseball’s season ended Monday in the region B quarterfinals at the hands of Chatham in a 12-6 loss on the road.

The Knights fell behind 6-0 after two innings when Chatham unleashed a five-run first, but Buckingham chipped away at the lead in the third, fourth and fifth innings to tie things up at 6-6. Chatham exploded again though with a six-run sixth inning and the Knights couldn’t muster any more offense.

Maurice Taylor led Buckingham with a 3-for-4 night and two RBIs in the contest.
