Fueled by a 15-run second inning, the Washington Post 218 Junior Legion team rolled to a 24-0 win at Sullivan Monday night.

“After a tough 1-0 loss to Union on Sunday, we got right back at it Monday night in Sullivan,” Post 218 Manager Phillip Kleekamp said. “After a quick first inning, the bats really came alive in the second inning.”

Chris Schweissguth did the job on the hill, limiting Sullivan to just one hit.

“Chris Schweissguth made his first start of the season and delivered a one-hit shutout,” Kleekamp said. “Chris has been one of our primary relievers this season and is one of the hardest working kids on the team. He has really improved over the course of the season, and it was good to see him make the start and pick up the W.”

Post 218 (16-3, 12-2) hosts Daniel Boone Tuesday at 6 p.m. before continuing league play later this week.

New Haven comes to town Wednesday at 6 p.m.

Sullivan

Washington secured a season sweep against Sullivan Monday night on the road and the 15-run second inning set the tone for the contest.

“After Sullivan walked the bases loaded, the hits really starting coming,” Kleekamp said. “Zach Marquart delivered one of the big blows of the inning doubling and driving in two runs. We totaled nine hits in the inning and drew six walks.”

Washington added eight more runs in the fourth and a final run in the top of the fifth inning.

“The big blow was a double by Kody Halmich that plated two runners,” Kleekamp said. “After a tough-luck loss the day prior, the boys were ready to hit at Sullivan.”

Schweissguth also allowed four walks and struck out five Post 18 batters during the contest.

Offensively, Post 218 had contributions throughout the lineup.

Gus Kleekamp led the way with four hits, including two doubles. He scored three times and drove in three.

Kyle Tuepker had three hits, three runs and three RBIs. He also was hit by a pitch.

Matt Miller recorded three hits, two runs, three RBIs and a walk.

James Dyson had three hits, including a double. He scored three times, drove in two and walked twice.

Marquart posted two hits, including a double. He had four runs, three RBIs and two walks.

Isaiah Oakes added two hits, one run and three RBIs.

Halmich doubled, scored twice, drove in two and walked once.

Adam Hinson singled, scored three times, drove in one and walked.

Michael Sinnott drew two walks, scored twice and drove in a run.
