Lyndonville pushed across a run in the bottom of the seventh inning to edge past visiting Byron-Bergen/Elba 9-8 this afternoon in a non league game.

James Ianni singled in the game winner for the Tigers as a hit batter and a walk set up the threat.

BB/Elba had scored once in the top of the seventh on a two out home run to knot the contest at 8-8.

Earlier, the visitors erupted for five runs in the top of the second inning to take what proved to be a brief 6-1 lead. A three-run double by Colby Pocock capped that scoring surge.

However, Lyndonville answered right back with five in the home half of the frame to quickly knot the contest at 6-6. Trevor Bentley had a two-run double, AJ Buckland and Ty Hrovat RBI doubles and Michael Wells an RBI single to highlight that uprising which was sparked by singles by Eric Neace and Chris Scroger.

Buckland, Hrovat, Ianni, Bentley and Brandon Schoolcraft each finished with 2 hits.

Now at 13-4 overall, Lyndonvlle next hosts Roy-Hart at 4:30 p.m. Friday in another non league contest.

Holley 18, Pembroke 3

Taking charge with a big 8-run third inning scoring burst, Holley went on to defeat Pembroke 18-3 in a G-R season finale.

Justin Parker had 4 hits, including a double, Sam Lammes 3 and Patrick Bower 2 with 3 RBIs to lead the attack for Holley.

Dylan Hillabush pitched the first three innings for the Hawks retiring the Dragons in order with 6 strikeouts.

Holley winds up the regular season at 10-2 in the league and 14-4 overall.
