Section I Little League (11-12)



District 38 champion Fredonia started off sectional play in Batavia with a bang by having five different players score in Saturday’s 8-1 victory against District 4’s Central Amherst.

Starting pitcher Owen Rush pitched three innings, allowing only two hits with four strikeouts. He also helped his cause by going 2-4 at the plate, which included crushing a two-run home run to deep center field in the sixth inning, ending any hopes of a comeback.

Ashton Putney and Brady Helmer also pitched well for Fredonia, combining for six strikeouts, while not allowing a run in the last three innings of relief.

Micah Davis also played well in Fredonia’s victory by going 2-4 with a double.

Up next for Fredonia is a game in the winner’s bracket on Monday against the winner of Sunday’s contest between Webster and the host team from Batavia. Game time is 4:30 p.m.
