A last inning rally fell just short as Medina dropped a 3-2 decision to host CSAT this afternoon in a Niagara-Orleans League baseball game.

Trailing 3-0 Medina rallied for two runs in the seventh inning on an RBI single by Tyler Ames and an error but the comeback bid came up short as the Mustangs left runners stranded at second and third. A walk and a single by Brad McPherson set up the opportunity.

CSAT scored all of its runs in the first inning on a two-run triple by Matt Kiblin and an RBI single by Jose Jimenez.

CSAT is now 6-5 and Medina 5-6.

The Mustangs next host Akron at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

Barker 8, Newfane 6
