The Chieftains hit three homeruns Monday on the way to an 18-8 win over Sanford Fritch. Josh Barnett (12) is congratulated by teammates after he hit a three run homer over the centerfield fence. Hunter Sundre and Brayden Pope also had homeruns. The Chiefs start playoff action vs. the Littlefield Wildcats with a Friday game at Littlefield and a second game at the Chieftain Ball Park starting at noon Saturday.
