Tyler Silas hit a game-winning single in the seventh inning and the Florence Buffaloes edged Cameron Yoe 2-1 on Saturday in Florence.

Evelio Varela pitched a complete game and only allowed one run for Florence. He just picked a bad time to do it.

Cameron Yoe tied the game off Varela, who had four strikeouts, in the seventh inning.

However, Florence (9-3, 2-3 27-2A) bailed its pitcher out. Trey Simpson walked to lead off the seventh, was sacrificed to second and then scored on Silas' hit.

Florence scored its first run when Dustyn Espinoza singled in Varela.
