EAGLE POINT – Starting pitcher Chase Costati had no hits in the seventh inning and limited Petaluma Athletic Edge to just two hits in a full game effort to lead the Medford Mustangs to a 3-1 victory in the first match of Saturday’s doubles program at Eagle Point High.

The Mustangs (36-9) couldn’t hang on and complete the sweep in Game 2, as Petaluma posted a 6-3 win to secure the division.

Only two runners made it to base against Costati – one via a walk and the other on a pitched hit to open the game – before a tee-off single to start the seventh broke his offer without a hit. sure. The only run he allowed was undeserved as Petaluma broke the shutout when Ryan Baptista scored from a passed ball.

Costati finished with three strikeouts and one walk.

Darin Marsh struck in the Mustangs’ first inning of Game 1 with a sacrifice ball in the bottom of the third. Medford DH Rowan Amann then made it 3-0 a set later when he led Aiden Horsley and Jace Miller with a two-run double to the left.

In Game 2, the Mustangs led 3-2 after Cody Borraggine’s triple RBI in the bottom of the fourth. The Mustangs, however, were unable to hold on to the lead as Petaluma took advantage of a Medford error on what could have been the game’s final and scored a run early in the seventh to tie the game.

Petaluma then scored three points in the top of the ninth, with the first two coming on Connor Ross’ home run at center field.

Borraggine, who also doubled in Game 1, finished 2 for 4 with a double and a triple in Game 2.

Zac Ankeny also led a race for the Mustangs with a single RBI late in the first.
