Lyndonville defeated Attica 5-2 and Kendall downed Byron-Bergen 8-2 this afternoon in Genesee Region League baseball action.

Lyndonville took the lead for good by scoring three times in the third inning on a sacrifice by winning pitcher Zach Johnson and a two-run single by Noah Heinsler who had two base raps on the day. Three walks loaded the bases to set up the threat.

Oskar Heinsler later singled in an insurance run in the sixth inning.

On the mound, Johnson scattered 6 hits and struck out 13 in six innings of work.  Two of those strikeouts were of the clutch variety helping to get the Tigers out of a bases loaded jam in the fifth inning.

Kendall used three-run scoring bursts in both the first and fourth innings to key the win over Byron-Bergen.

Winning pitcher Mason Kuhn helped himself by banging out a two-run double in the first inning as Mickey Gardner added an RBI single.

Kuhn had a total of three hits on the day, including a triple, as John Rath and Jeremy Browe both had 2.

On the mound, Kuhn allowed only 2 hits, struck out 9 and didn’t issue a walk.

In another G-R contest Oakfield-Alabama/Elba defeated Holley 11-5.
