Mustangs nip Rams

Medina Journal-Register — Pushing across a run in the bottom of the seventh inning Medina nipped Roy-Hart 6-5 Monday to improve to 8-2 in Niagara-Orleans League baseball action.

Defending champion Albion maintained a one game lead a top the N-O standings at 9-1 by outslugging host Wilson 16-8.

Matt Riemer doubled in the winning run for the Mustangs snapping a 5-5 deadlock.

Medina had jumped out to as much as a 5-1 lead after scoring twice in the second inning on an error and a balk and three times in the third on a two-run triple by Zach Newton and an RBI single by Josh Scroger.

However, Roy-Hart battled back into a 5-5 tie by scoring twice in the fourth inning on a two-run home run by Ryan Farewell and twice in the sixth on a wild pitch and an RBI single by Nick Morse. A single by Farewell, who had four hits on the day, a bunt single by Josh Baptiste and an error put runners at second and third to set up that opportunity.

Making it five wins in a row, Medina, which stranded runners at second and third in the sixth, capitalized on a walk and Riemer’s big double to plate the game winner in the seventh.

Defensively, the Mustangs got a big double play in the second inning from Riemer at third to Newton at first to Dan Barnes at shortstop.

The loss drops Roy-Hart to 4-6.

Albion 16, Wilson 8

WILSON - It was a fast start and a strong finish that propelled Albion past Wilson in a wild contest Monday which saw the teams score in virtually every inning.

Albion scored six quick runs in the first inning on a two-run single by Connor Barleben, RBI singles by winning pitcher Chris Reed and Trey Hart and singles by John Page, John Warne, Steven Stauss and Jack Narburgh.
