Tigers upend Irish to gain DD finals

Medina Journal-Register — BATAVIA - Avenging a pair of regular season losses, No. 4 seed Lyndonville upended top seeded Notre Dame 7-3 Wednesday in the semifinal round of the Section V Class DD playoffs at Dwyer Stadium.

Lyndonville, which lost to Notre Dame by scores of 4-3 and 10-3 during the Genesee Region League season, rallied from an early 3-0 deficit to claim the victory and advance to the DD title contest.

“That’s what we wanted. That’s what we wanted,” exclaimed Lyndonville coach Shane Price. “After we lost to them here in the second game of the season I said we’d be back and we did.”

Justin Edwards led the way for Lyndonville both on the mound, where he allowed only three hits and struck out six, and at the plate, where he banged out three hits including a double and drove in a run.

“Justin came up big for us,” said Shane Price. “He came up huge on the mound and with the three hits.”

Notre Dame grabbed what proved to be a short lived 3-0 lead by scoring once in the first on a leadoff double by Tom Prospero who stole home and then twice in the second on three errors, a walk and an RBI single by Andrew Mullen.

However, Edwards slammed the door on the Irish hitters the rest of the way retiring 15 of the final 16 batters he faced allowing only one hit over the final five innings. 

The Tigers defense also came up big during that stretch capped off by a game ending double play from shortstop Ty Hrovat to second baseman Chris Scroger to first baseman Eddie Silversmith. Evan Milleville at third, Austin Bane in left and Austin Buckland in center also made key plays for outs during that key five inning stretch.

At the plate, Lyndonville got back into the game by scoring twice in the top of the third inning on a bases loaded walk and a wild pitch. A walk, a double by Edwards and another walk loaded the bases to set up the opportunity.
