Mustangs post key win over Lady Rams
Avenging an earlier season one run (3-2) loss, Medina upended front-running Roy-Hart 5-3 in a key Niagara-Orleans League softball game this afternoon at Vets Park.
Improving to 6-3, the win pulls Medina back to within a game of first place in the all important loss column as Roy-Hart slips to 8-2.
Defending champion Akron regained a share of first place at 8-2 with a 15-1 win over Barker and Newfane moved back to within a half game of the top spot at 7-2 by downing Barker 18-4.
Medina took the lead for good by scoring 4 quick runs in the first inning on RBI singles by winning pitcher Emily Kams and Brandi Guild, a run producing double by Alisha Scroger and a bases loaded walk.
The Mustangs made it 5-1 in the second inning as Scroger tripled and came home on a fielders choice play off the bat of Kams.
Roy-Hart though came battling back scoring twice in the sixth inning on an error and an RBI single by Delaney Draper to cut the deficit to 5-3.
The Lady Rams then got runners to second and third in the seventh after a double by Emily Metz, a hit batter and a sacrifice bunt by Maddie Fry. However, the Mustangs turned back the challenge as Kams registered a clutch strikeout to end the threat and the game.
Kams scattered 6 hits and struck out 8 on the day.
At the plate, Scroger had a total of 4 hits and Kams, Guold and Ashlee Howell 2 each.
Kayla Brown had 2 hits for Roy-Hart.
