Chiefs edge Tigers in 8 innings

Matt Entsminger drove in Drake Roebuck with a suicide squeeze bunt in the bottom of the eighth inning Monday as Bellefontaine slipped past visiting West Liberty-Salem 3-2 in a non-league baseball game.

The score was knotted at 2-2 after four innings and neither team could score again until Entsminger's perfectly executed squeeze bunt plated Roebuck with one out in the eighth.
