Staying in the thick of the title race, Medina blanked CSAT 5-0 at Vets Park this afternoon in a Niagara-Orleans League baseball game.

The duo of Matt Riemer on the mound and Adam Hoot at the plate provided the spark for Medina which improves its second place record to 7-2.

Riemer scattered five hits and struck out seven. He also banged out two hits as did Hoot who had a home run and drove in a total of four runs.

“Matt really battled. He really worked hard out there,” said Medina Coach Eric Hellwig. “And Adam has really been hitting the ball well.”

Medina jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the second inning on a two-run homer by Hoot which followed a double by Riemer.

The Mustangs made it 3-0 in the third inning as Jason Hellwig singled and came home on a single by Hoot.

Medina later added two big insurance runs in the fifth frame on a sacrifice fly by Hoot and a single by Justin Morgan. A single by Riemer ignited that uprising.

“We got some timely hits,” said Hellwig. “The focus is there right now, offensively, defensively and pitching wise we’re where we want to be as a team right now.”

Lyndonville 12, Lima Christian 3
In the completion of a non league game that was suspended early in the season, Lyndonville bested visiting Lima Christian 12-3 this afternoon to improve to 11-0.

Ty Hrovat pitched the final three innings today striking out three to pick up the win on the mound.

AJ Buckland had a total of three hits and Jacob Hoffee and Evan Milleville two each to lead the Tigers at the plate.

Lyndonville had led by an 11-2 margin when bad weather caused the contest to be suspended last month.
