Getting back onto the winning track, Medina bested Akron 6-2 in a Niagara-Orleans League game at Vets Park this afternoon.

Rebounding from their first loss of the season (5-3 to Roy-Hart in 8 innings Tuesday), the Mustangs jumped out to an early 5-0 lead.

Chris Goyette went the distance on the mound for the Mustangs.

An RBI single by winning pitcher Chris Goyette and a double steal play gave Medina a quick 2-0 lead in the first inning. A single by Nate Sherman and a walk set up the opportunity.

The Mustangs quickly tacked on three more runs in the second inning on a two-run single by AJ Seefeldt and an error. A walk and a single by Brian Fry ignited that uprising.

Seefeldt had a big day at the plate as he also banged out a solo home run in the sixth inning and had a double in the fourth frame.

Goyette went the distance on the mound allowing 4 hits and striking out 8.

Akron’s only scoring came on a two-run double by Mitchell Holtz in the sixth inning.

Medina improves to 4-1 in the league and 9-1 overall while Akron slips to 2-2 in N-O competition.

Wilson 6, Roy-Hart 5
Trailing 5-3, Wilson scored three times in the sixth inning to hand defending champion Roy-Hart its first N-O loss.

A single by winning pitcher Ian Evans, an error and a double by Patrick Seeley accounted for the Lakemen’s decisive three runs in the sixth. A double by Tom Baia ignited the uprising which also included a single by Steve Frerichs.

On the mound, Evans scattered 10 hits and struck out 13.

Charlie Bruning, Gavyn Boyle, Noah Hardy and Tom Russo each had a pair of hits and an RBI for Roy-Hart.

Wilson is now 2-0 and Roy-Hart 2-1 in N-O competition.

Newfane 5, Barker 1

Garrett Srock went the distance on the mound with 14 strikeouts for Newfane in a 5-1 win over Barker.

Cade Littman had a two-run double and Matt DiTullio 2 hits for the Panthers.
