Rebounding from a big early deficit, Lyndonville rallied to defeat visiting Alexander 16-8 this afternoon in a Genesee Region League baseball game.

Trailing 6-0 after just one half an inning and 7-3 after three innings, Lyndonville rallied into the lead for good by erupting for six runs in the fourth inning. An RBI triple by Nathan Dillenbeck, an RBI double by Jack Whipple and a two-run single by Alex Barry highlighted that key uprising which rallied the Tigers into a 9-7 lead.

Keeping the momentum, the Tigers tacked on four more runs in the fifth frame on RBI singles by Barry, Trenton Muck, Whipple and Roman Heinsler who also picked up the win on the mound in relief. He allowed only 2 hits and struck out 9 over the final five and two-thirds innings.

Alexander scored six quick runs in the top of the first inning on an error, a wild pitch, two bases loaded walks and a two-run single by Hunter Fletcher who also ignited the uprising with a lead-off double.

Lyndonville is now 1-1 in G-R action.

Attica 12, Holley-Kendall 6

Leading by a narrow 6-5 margin, Attica scored five times in the bottom of the fifth inning aided by a couple of errors, to key a 12-6 G-R win over visiting Holley-Kendall.

Holley-Kendall scored twice in the first inning as Braxton Zarpentine had a key hit, three times in the fifth as Jorden Ostrander had an RBI and once in the seventh on an error.

Zarpentine finished with 3 hits and Ostrander 2.

Now at 1-1, Holley next hosts Alexander at 4:30 p.m. Saturday.
