Chiefland has made thrilling comebacks a routine occurrence this season on the baseball diamond.

The latest came on Monday, as the Indians (6-4) put two over in the bottom of the seventh for a 6-5 win in non-district play against Newberry in Chiefland.

Junior first baseman Josh Webber delivered the walk-off RBI single for CMHS, driving in Jose Guerrero, who boarded on a base hit.

Chiefland junior Zach Bloom led off the seventh with a liner down the left-field line for a double. Bloom was thrown out coming home on a fielder’s choice, but Seth Thomas (3 for 4) later scored to tie the game on a wild pitch after he reached on his third hit of the night.

Thomas batted in Bloom to put the Indians on the board in the third, and issued another RBI single in the fifth, when Chiefland put three runs up, led by a two-run single by Keegan McLelland. Senior Casey Lawson and sophomore Elijah Smith walked and scored during the rally, with Lawson’s run coming via courtesy runner Lonnie Hinote. Sophomore Wyatt Hammond also singled and scored.
