Strong pitching lifts Rogues over Athletics

Medford scored three runs in the sixth inning and three Rogues pitchers limited Fresno to three hits in collegiate wood-bat baseball at Harry & David Field Sunday.

Starter Ryan Buckley hurled four innings of one-hit, shutout ball, striking out one and walking three to notch the win as the Rogues improved to 17-3. Sebasten Boivin and Jack Erickson also saw mound action.

Wyatt Young and Emiliano Alarcon were each 2-for-3 with an RBI for Medford, which had eight hits.

In the sixth, Matt Aguilar doubled and was knocked in by a Jackson Hall pinch-hit single. Vinnie Zavolta followed with an RBI double, and he later scored when Omar Ortiz reached on a throwing error.

Medford is host to the Springfield Timbers American Legion team at 6:35 p.m. Tuesday.
