Playing on the road against a St. Charles team sitting in third place in the Ninth District standings, the Washington Post 218 Seniors rolled to a 15-1 win in seven innings Friday at Blanchette Park.

Post 218 (18-6, 11-1) swept a doubleheader Sunday at Moberly, 4-2 and 7-1.

Washington returns to Ninth District action with games Tuesday at Clarksville, Thursday at home against Daniel Boone at 7 p.m. and Friday at St. Peters at 7 p.m.

St. Charles

Post 218, currently on top of the Ninth District standings one game ahead of West, rolled past St. Charles, 15-1.

Washington took control of the game early and never looked back, scoring four runs in the top of the first inning, two in the second, one in the third, three in the sixth and five in the seventh.

St. Charles (20-13, 8-4) scored its lone run in the bottom of the second inning.

“This was, by far, the best we hit all year,” said Post 218 Manager Mike Gardner. “Everyone in the lineup had at least one hit and seven of the nine had at least one RBI. If we can hit like that for the rest of the year, we will be unbeatable.”

Brendan Kleekamp pitched all seven innings for Post 218 to earn the win. He allowed one run on five hits with one walk and six strikeouts.

“After he was able to get comfortable with the mound, BK was again his usual self, pitching a solid complete game,” Gardner said. “We also made a couple of really good defensive plays that kept St. Charles from scoring. Dilan Bollmann made the play of the game, going out behind second base to make a diving catch.”

Trent Leimkuehler led Washington’s 18-hit attack by going 3-4 at the plate (one double) with a walk, three RBIs and two runs.

Mike McGilvray was a home run short of hitting for the cycle, going 3-5 with two runs and one RBI.

Grant Eckelkamp also collected three hits with two runs and one RBI.

Matt Jones finished with two hits (both doubles), two RBIs and one run.

Jack Kopmann registered two hits, one walk, two runs and one RBI.

Noah Borgerding added two hits and two runs.

Tony Helfrich collected one hit (double), two walks, two RBIs and one run.

Dilan Bollmann totaled one hit, one walk, one RBI and one run.

Dustin Howard had one hit (double), one walk and two runs.

Spencer Pugh started on the mound and took the loss for St. Charles, allowing six runs in 2.2 innings.

Brandon Brett, Austin Olendorff and Samuel Melliere pitched in relief.

Olendorff had two hits, including a solo home run, to pace the home team.


Post 218 swept the Moberly Sixers on Sunday by scores of 4-2 and 7-1.

Zach Pointer pitched all seven innings of the first game to earn the win. He allowed two runs on three hits with five walks and two strikeouts.

Post 218 collected six hits, led by Leimkuehler’s 2-4 performance with a double and three RBIs.

Luke Hasenjaeger, Andrew Sumner, Sam Deschenes (triple) and Kopmann each added one hit. Helfrich drew a walk.

Deschenes also walked twice and scored two runs. Sumner and Kopmann both scored one run.

“Zach was on the mound for us and pitched a complete game, only allowing three hits,” Gardner said. “We were a little off at the plate, but Sam Deschenes and Trent Leimkuehler had some timely hits to give us the run support we needed to win the game.”

In the second game, Post 218 used four pitchers to hold Moberly to one run.

Sumner got the start and earned the win. In four innings, he allowed one run on two hits with one walk and no strikeouts.

Cody Gardner, Helfrich and Jones each tossed one scoreless inning in relief.

“We again had great starting pitching. Andrew threw the first four innings, only giving up two hits,” Gardner said. “We used the last three innings to get a few other pitchers in the game to keep them sharp.”

Offensively, Post 218 collected 11 hits.

Leimkuehler continued his hot hitting by going 3-4 at the plate with two doubles, one triple, three RBIs and two runs.

Howard collected two hits, two RBIs and one run.

Bollmann added two hits (one double) and one run.

Brendan Feldmann, Borgerding (double), Kopmann and Deschenes (double) each had one hit. Deschenes also walked and scored two runs. Feldmann had one RBI. Kopmann scored a run.

“Sam and Trent again stepped up at the plate. Dustin Howard and Dilan Bollmann also had two-hit games providing the offense we needed,” Gardner said. “We have some guys who are really hot at the plate right now. Hopefully we can keep that up. No one is hotter than Trent. In his last four games, he is 13 for 17 with 11 RBIs.”
