Buchanan, Wolff lead North Medford

Kasey Buchanan supplied a pair of big two-out hits and Greyson Wolff had an effective outing on the mound to lead North Medford for a 9-3 nonleague baseball win over visiting Century Thursday.

Wolff limited the Jaguars to three runs, including two earned.

“It was Greyson really setting the tone on the mound for us,” said Black Tornado coach Brett Wolfe. “He worked ahead of the hitters — they’re a good swinging team — and he was able to limit their bats by competing in the strike zone. He had great command of his pitches.”

Wolff worked six innings, surrendering five hits and no walks to go with five strikeouts.

Buchanan drove in five runs on the day and finished 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles.

After he had a two-out, run-scoring double in the third inning, Buchanan used another two-out double, this time to drive in three runs, in the bottom of North Medford’s five-run fifth to push the lead to 9-1.

Berry Hunt went 2-for-4, plated three and scored twice for the Black Tornado (3-1).
