SARANAC — Austin Medeiros turned in a strong pitching performance and Jeremy Barber put Saranac ahead to stay with a two-run double in the bottom of the sixth inning in the Chiefs’ 4-2 victory over Ticonderoga in Champlain Valley Athletic Conference baseball on Thursday.
Medeiros struck out six and allowed just three hits in going the distance for the victory.

The Sentinels scored both their runs in the first inning on an error and Miles Austin’s long two-run homer.
“Medeiros made a mistake in the first inning, but didn’t make many after that,” Saranac coach Frank Trudeau said. “He settled down, hit his spots and worked the corners. He gave up only two hits from the second inning on and his teammates played good defense behind him.”
The Chiefs got one of the run back in the third when Kyle Erickson singled and scored on Caleb Keysor’s triple.
Still, Ticonderoga held the lead until the sixth. That’s when Keysor and Tanner Rascoe both walked and Barber scored both runners with his double. Jake Griffin then singled in the third run of the inning.
Barber finished with two doubles in the contest.
The Sentinels used four pitchers, with Tanner Wright taking the loss in relief.
“It was a real good game,” Trudeau said. “There was one combined error and there was good pitching on the part of both teams.”
