The Wayne Eagles bounced back from Friday’s 5-0 loss to undefeated Palmyra-Macedon with a 7-2 victory over the Mynderse Academy Blue Devils on Saturday morning at Wayne Central High School in Ontario Center.
The game was scoreless until the fourth inning when the Eagles plated a pair of runs to take a 2-0 lead.
Wayne pushed across another run in the fifth to extend its lead to 3-0. Then, the Blue Devils finally answered with two runs in the top half of the sixth to make it a one-run game. However, that was as close as it would get as the Eagles scored five runs in the bottom half of the frame to bust the game open.
Mynderse had several opportunities with guys on base throughout the game but just couldn’t cash in.
Robert Meeks made his first career varsity start for the Blue Devils and kept the team in the game until late. He surrendered six runs on nine hits over 5.2 innings while striking out seven.
Tyler Mudge got the start for Wayne and allowed two runs (one earned) over 5.2 innings while striking out four.
Both teams will be back in action on Tuesday. Wayne will host the Newark Reds and Mynderse will host the Geneva Panthers.
