Notre Dame ousts Lyndonville
Avenging a pair of regular season league losses, No. 3 seed Notre Dame downed top seeded Lyndonville 8-3 this afternoon in the semifinal round of the Section V Class D1 baseball playoffs at Holley.
Notre Dame moved on top to stay by scoring four times during an error aided second inning uprising. A two-run double by Luca Zambito, an error and an RBI single by Chris Suozzi plated the tallies as back-to-back inning opening errors set up the opportunity.
Lyndnville did answer with a run in the home half of the second as Cody Bentley tripled and came home on a single by Corey Hydock. However, the Tigers could not cross home plate again until the sixth frame and by then the Irish had extended the lead to 8-1.
Notre Dame, which lost to Lyndonville by scores of 6-4 and 6-3 during the Genesee Region League campaign, made it 6-1 in the fourth inning on RBI singles by Casey Midwick and Suozzi, who had a total of 4 hits on the day.
Bases loaded walks plated the other two Irish runs in the fifth and sixth innings.
Lyndonville’s other tallies came in the sixth on a two-run double by Eddie Schildt which followed singles by Eric Neace and Michael Wells.
Tyler Prospero went the distance on the mound for the Irish scattering 6 hits and striking out 8. He registered clutch inning ending strikeouts to end Lyndonville’s only good scoring threats in the second and sixth innings.
