The Medina Mustang 13U baseball team dropped a narrow 10-7 decision to the Academy Stars 14U squad on Sunday in a WNY Boys of Summer Fall League game at Barre Town Park.

After a rough first inning in which Medina gave up up 7 runs, the Mustangs outscored the Stars 7 to 3 in the last six innings coming up short in bottom of seventh stranding two base runners.

Brody Fry pitched 3 great innings only giving up 1 run with 4 strikeouts, Lukas Grimes followed up with 3 strikeouts in the 5th and 6th innings, and Ryleigh Culver closed out game only facing 4 hitters.

Culver led the Mustangs batting with a single, double and 2 RBI’s. Carter Woodworth had a single, 1 RBI, and scored a run, Vinny Gray a single, RBI, and scored a run, Jimmy Dieter a single, and scored a run and Tyler Kroening an RBI. Fry and Preston Woodworth both added a single while Ryan Pegelow and Lukas Grimes each scored a run.

Medina also lost a doubleheader to the 14U WNY Prospects on Saturday at Orchard Park.

Kroening had a double and scored the lone run on RBI by Fry in game 1.

In game two, Preston Woodworth had a single and a double and scored a run, Gray and Kroening each had a single and scored a run,  Fry had a single and 2 RBI’s, and Dieter scored a run.

“All three games were played against 14U teams as the WNY Boys of Summer league had to combine 13U and 14U teams in same league due to limited amount of teams playing,” said Medina Coach John Dieter.  “The Medina Mustangs 12U are playing up at 13U level for preparation for spring 13U.”
