Kendall ‘9’ earns first victory in thriller
Surviving a big scare in the final inning, Kendall notched victory No. 1 on the young season by edging past host Byron-Bergen 7-5 this afternoon in a Genesee Region League game.
Byron-Bergen scored once and still had the bases loaded with one out in the bottom of the seventh but Kendall got out of the jam as relief hurler Mason Kuhn registered two clutch strikeouts to preserve the Eagles win.
Kuhn also had a big day at the plate banging out 3 hits including a solo home run in the first inning.
Mickey Gardner earned the win on the mound for the Eagles as he allowed 3 hits and struck out 10 over the first five and two-thirds inning.
Kendall had a big five run second inning highlighted by a two-run single by Ethan Spalty and RBI singles by Jeremy Browe and Noah Rath.
Kendall is now 1-2 on the season which is marking the Eagles return to varsity competition after a two year absence.
