Lewis’ two RBIs big over Bath
Dansville was in Bath Thursday for a rescheduled rain game and stopped the Rams in their own backyard 3-1.
The Mustangs defense played a big part as Steve MacDonald chased down a shot with the bases loaded in the fifth inning in deep centerfield. Sammy Diaz also made a defensive gem in left field when the junior outfielder gunned out a runner at the plate in the second inning.
Pat McMullin was stellar in the win with five strong innings of 5-hit baseball, with two Ks, two walks and only one earned run. Garrett Hoag then pitched two scoreless relief innings with no runs, one hit, three Ks and a walk. Offensively; Tim Rauber and Brandon Dugo were each 1-3 and a run, Kyle Lewis 1-2, two RBIs, and Steve MacDonald scored a run.
Steady offense sinks York
Keshequa scored in every inning Thursday except the second to down York by a 10-2 final.
Offensvie highlights were sacrifices by Sean Mattle and Tim Jackson and Korey Gillen solo homer in the third

Livonia downs Dansville in Dogwood
The Livonia Bulldog’s spoiled the Dogwood Festival party after defeating the Mustangs 8-3 Friday at Babcock Park.
After the Dogs scored a pair in the top of the first, the Mustangs countered by cutting their deficit in half when Sammy Diaz reached on an error and moved to second on a fielders choice. When Diaz attempted to steal third, the throw went wild and allowed him to score. The best the Mustangs could do is cut it to a 5-3 before the Livonia runs rolled in.
Ethan Perry took the loss pitching six, giving up eight earned runs on seven hits while walking four and getting one K. Brandon Dugo threw a scoreless seventh, striking out two. All the Mustangs offense could muster would be Mitch Lamerson's 3-3, one run, and Steve MacDonald and Diaz were each 1-3 with an RBI and a run.

You only need one to win it

Defensive lapses doom Dansville

Way too much to not enough
Keshequa (11-2, 6-2) had the big sticks out on Friday, pounding rival Mt. Morris 25-1 count at the Devils Den. The Indians used a 7-run second, and a 10-run fifth to put the game out of reach as the orange and black pounded out 22 hits in the game. Leading the offensive charge were Shelby Hatfield who was 3-3 with two RBIs and Amanda Gath who went 2-2 with three RBIs.
Letchworth squeaks by Dansville
Even with exceptional pitching performances from both Clarissa Swain and Emily Moore Monday, the Lady Mustangs were limited to just five hits from a pair of freshman in a heartbreaking 2-1 loss to Letchworth.
Clarissa Swain got the loss hurling 5 1/3 innings of 3-hit softball, two earned runs, striking out 10 and walking five. Emily Moore threw the last 2/3’s, striking out one. Offensively; Jill Kahn was 3-4 and scored the lone run, Amanda Irish had the rest of the offense going 2-3 and driving in Kahn.
Miller frustrates KCS batters
The visiting Lady Yellowjackets came to Nunda on Monday and went home with a win under their belt as hurler Ashley Miller perplexed the Lady Indians on their home field allowing just five hits in an 8-2 win over KCS.
Perry stung the Indians early by scoring twice in each of the first two innings, tacked on a single run in the fifth, and three more to finish the job in the sixth. The orange and black mustered a pair of seventh inning tallies to break up the shut-out bid, but could not overcome Perry.
