ROME — Sayre’s early-season offensive onslaught continued Wednesday afternoon as the Redskins used a pair of 11-run innings to post a 24-0 three-inning rout of Northeast Bradford in NTL Small School Division baseball action.
The Redskins improve to 5-0 on the season, and have scored 93 runs. They’ve won all five games via the “mercy” rule.
Nearly lost in Sayre’s offensive explosion was the three-inning no-hitter thrown by sophomore Lucas Horton. He fanned seven and walked two.
Junior Brayden Horton was the hitting star for the Redskins. He was 3-for-3 with a home run, three runs scored and six RBI.
Senior Zach Moore singled twice, scored one run, and drove in two runs in Sayre’s 11-hit attack, while Lucas Horton singled, scored two runs, and had four RBI, junior VanDuzer singled, scored three runs, and had three RBI, and senior Jordan Goodrich and sophomore Jackson Hubbard each singled, scored one run, and drove in one run.
Junior Dom Fabbri singled and knocked in one run in the win, while sophomore Zach Garrity and junior Mason Houseknecht each scored three runs and drove in one run, senior Jake Burgess scored two runs and knocked in one run, Oakley Gorman scored one run and drove in two runs, and Kegan Hayford crossed the plate once.
The Redskins took advantage of 14 base on balls issued by NEB pitchers, and three errors by the Panther defense.
Lucas Horton lined a two-RBI single in the top of the first to spark Sayre’s first 11-run rally, which also featured a two-run home run by Brayden Horton, a two-run single by Kannon VanDuzer, and RBI singles by Moore and Hubbard.
Brayden Horton’s two-run single in the second inning extended the Sayre lead to 13-0.
Moore led off the top of the third inning with a single, but by the next time the Redskins managed a hit it was 20-0, thanks to four walks, two NEB errors and two hit batters.
Goodrich’s RBI single with the bases load made it 21-0. Bases-loaded walked to Gorman and Brayden Horton, sandwiched around an RBI single by Fabbri, capped the rally.
Sayre returns to action Friday when it hosts Towanda.
