Wilson tops Medina in Evoy Scholarship game
A big six run fourth inning scoring burst keyed Wilson to an 11-5 victory over Medina in the inaugural Jeff Evoy Memorial Scholarship baseball game at Vets Park this evening.
Trailing 4-3, Wilson moved on top to stay in the decisive frame as a three-run homer by John Bender capped off the six run uprising.
Singles by Steve Frerichs and Tanner Seeley, along with a sacrifice fly by Jonah Miller, plated the first three runs as a double by Justin Daul and a single by Matt Daul set up the threat.
The Lakemen later tacked on a pair of insurance runs in the sixth on a double by Jackson Rotella and a triple by Connor Seeley.
Medina had grabbed a quick 2-0 lead in the first inning on a double by Brett Riemer and a fielders choice play off the bat of Nate Sherman. A double by Alex Allis also helped key that scoring burst.
Wilson rallied into a 3-2 lead in the third on a two-run triple by Jackson Rotella and an error.
Medina moved back on top for what proved to be the last time at 4-3 in the home half of the third on a two-run homer by Riemer.
The Mustangs then got runners to second and third after a hit batter, a single by Sherman and a sacrifice bunt by Trevor Luthart but Wilson hurler Nate Fox got out the jam with a clutch inning ending strikeout stranding Medina runners at second and third.
Fox allowed 7 hits and struck out 7 in six innings of work. Bender came on to hurl the seventh inning and gave up 1 hit and 1 walk and struck out 3.
Rotella and Tanner Seeley both had a pair of hits on the evening as did Riemer, Sherman and Allis for the Mustangs.
Wilson is now 4-0 and Medina 1-3 in N-O competition.
