HS ROUNDUP: Eagler returns to lead Wolverines

Niagara Gazette —

After sitting out for two weeks with a shoulder injury, Mike Eagler had a strong return for the Niagara Falls baseball team, pitching 6 1/3 innings, allowing five hits and striking out seven in a 3-1 win over Niagara-Wheatfield in Niagara Frontier League play Monday afternoon.

"He got ahead of every batter," said Niagara Falls coach Joe Contento. "He threw his curve for a strike all game long."

Eagler left the game in the 7th with the bases loaded. Senior Joe Colosi earned the save with a strike out and a pop out. 

The Wolverines (7-3 NFL) only had only three hits in the game, but were able to score runs by playing small ball. Jake Martineau had a RBI on a squeeze bunt and Matt Colosi knocked in a run on a sacrifice fly. 

Brenden Gilewski threw a complete game for the Falcons (5-5). 

Lockport 15, North Tonawanda 6

Nick Baron went 1 for 3 with a double, a walk and a run scored, while Devin Johannas and Taylor Mott each added a hit for the Lumberjacks (1-9 NFL). Lockport remains atop the league at 9-1.

Sweet Home 6, Starpoint 2

The Spartans (11-4, 7-3 ECIC II) jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning, but that was all they'd get against pitcher Justin Bystrak and the Panthers (4-6). Stan Speaker and Alex O'Donnell singled in the first, and Andrew Rankie and Brett Guay knocked in the runs. The loss ends Starpoint's four-game winning streak.

Grand Island 9, Lew-Port 1

Quinn Corrao pitched a complete-game four-hitter and John Holody and Josh Ungaro each had two RBIs for the Vikings (8-2 NFL), who remained in second place in the league. Joe Scirto knocked in a run and Jordan Willard went 2 for 3 for the Lancers (4-6).

SOFTBALL

Lockport 5, North Tonawanda 4  

Shannon Krywcun accounted for three of the five runs and added a RBI for the Lions (5-6 NFL). NT drops to 1-10.
