One lone late inning run proved to be enough to earn Medina a 1-0 win over Wilson at Vets Park this afternoon as the Mustangs complete an 11-1 Niagara-Orleans League championship season.

The Mustangs scored the game’s lone run in the sixth inning on an error as a double by Ryleigh Culver set up the opportunity.

Ironically, it was a two run sixth inning that earned Medina an equally close 2-0 win at Wilson on Monday which clinched outright possession of the N-O title for the Mustangs.

Defensively for the Mustangs, Brody Fry made a great catch at the wall of the grandstand in deep left field in the sixth inning with a Wilson runner aboard to save a pair of runs.

Julian Woodworth picked up the win on the mound as he allowed 2 hits and struck out 7 over six and two-thirds innings. Preston Woodworth came on to get the final out of the game on an infielder groundout after Wilson got two runners aboard.

Wilson finishes the N-O season at 7-5.

The Rams jumped out to an early 8-1 lead scoring twice in the first inning on an error and a double by Gavin Heideman, three times in the second as Jake Gould had an RBI triple and three times in the third as Ian Ausman had a two-run double.

Heideman, Gould and Brayden Hy each finished with a pair of hits. Heideman also picked up the win on the mound allowing just 2 hits with 8 strikeouts in five innings of work.
