Genesee Valley tops Lyndonville in Class DD title contest
A big four-run fifth inning scoring burst on a barrage of five straight hits, keyed No. 4 seed Genesee Valley to a 5-3 victory over No. 2 Lyndonville in the Section V Class DD championship game this afternoon at Dwyer Stadium in Batavia.
Snapping a 1-1 deadlock, Genesee Valley in rapid fire succession banged out a single by Carson Werner, a two-run single by Tyler Zlomek, a double by Jon Morse and RBI singles by Vinny Biancuzzo and Noah Windus to score four times and take the lead for good.
Lyndonville had jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead in the first inning as Jacob Hoffee singled and came home on a triple by Ty Hrovat who had three hits on the day.
However, Genesee Valley answered right back with the tying run in the top of the second on an RBI triple by Windus.
Lyndonville did get Trevor Bentley aboard in the second with a double and Hrovat on in the third with a single but could not advance either runner. The Tigers then went down in order in both the fourth and fifth frames.
Working to get back in the game, Lyndonville scored once in the sixth as Hrovat singled, advanced on a hit by Eric Neace and came home on a fielders choice play off the bat of Chris Scroger to make it 5-2.
The Tigers then mounted a one out threat in the bottom of the seventh as Bentley doubled and came home on a single by AJ Buckland to make it 5-3. However, the Tigers rally fell short as two fly outs to centerfield ended the rally and locked up the title for Genesee Valley.
Lyndonville finishes the season at 15-6.
