Rebounding from a 3-0 deficit, Lyndonville rallied to nip Oakfield-Alabama 4-3 in 8 innings this afternoon in the Genesee Region League baseball opener for the Tigers.

Lyndonville rallied into a 3-3 tie by scoring three times in the bottom of the sixth inning on an RBI sacrifice by Brandon Schoolcraft and run producing doubles by Eric Neace and Chris Scroger. A single by AJ Buckland, a double by Jacob Hoffee and a hit batsman loaded the bases to set up the threat.

The Tigers then left the bases loaded in the seventh inning before plating the game winner in the eighth on an RBI single by Trevor Bentley. A single by Scroger and a walk set up the opportunity.

Hoffee had a total of three hits on the day as Buckland, Neace and Scroger each had two.

The Tigers defense also came up big late tunring clutch double plays in both the sixth and eighth innings. Scroger in left field teamed up with Hoffee at second and Schoolcraft at first to turn the one in the sixth. Hoffee and Schoolcraft then combined for the one in the eighth.

Ty Hrovat went the distance on the mound for the Tigers scattering 5 hits and striking out 7. He retired the Hornets in order in each of the last three innings.

Lyndonville next visits Notre Dame on Thursday.

Scoring in five different innings, Holley posted an 11-1 victory at Attica to improve to 2-0 in G-R competition.

Justin Parker and Jon Bower both had two hits, including a double, to lead the attack for Holley which scored three times in both the first and fourth inning and twice in the second and fifth frames. Parker drove in two runs.

Dylan Hillabush picked up the win on the mound allowing just 1 hit with 3 strikeouts in four innings of work.

Notre Dame 3, Kendall 2

Notre Dame pushed across a run in the bottom of the seventh inning to nip visiting Kendall 3-2 at Dwyer Stadium.

Cal Tygart singled in the winning run for Notre Dame after a bunt and an error set up the threat.

Kendall had tied the game at 2-2 by scoring once in the fifth on an RBI single by Mookie Nauden and once in the sixth on an RBI sacrifice fly by Zach Vogt. A walk and a single by Colton Breslawski set up that opportunity.

Nauden and Breslawski both had two hits on the day.
