Tigers down Irish for 10th victory
Notching victory No. 10 on the season, Lyndonville avenged an early season 4-3 extra inning loss by besting visiting Notre Dame 7-1 this afternoon in a Genesee Region League baseball game.
Eric Neace and Dawson Joy both banged out 3 hits for Lyndonville as Zach Johnson, Cody Bentley and Kane Flynn each chipped in with 2.
Mike Wells picked up the win on the mound scattering 7 hits and striking out 2.
Breaking away from a 1-1 deadlock, Lyndonville took the lead for good by scoring 3 times in the fifth inning on a two-run triple by Joy and an RBI single by Johnson. A walk and a single by Wells set up the opportunity.
The Tigers then tacked on 3 insurance runs in the sixth on a two-run double by Bentley and an RBI double by Flynn. A double by Neace and a walk set up the threat.
Defensively, the Tigers turned a key double play from Bentley at second to Jacob Hoffee at short to Neace at first to get out of a third inning jam.
Lyndonville, which is now 6-1 in the league and 10-1 overall, next hosts Oakfield-Alabama on May 8.
