It was going to be difficult for Tyler Straatmann to top his last pitching outing, but he somehow found a way to do it.

Coming off a 17-strikeout performance against Sullivan, Straatmann tossed a five-inning perfect game for the Pacific Post 320 Juniors in a 13-0 victory Saturday at Wentzville.

In five innings of work, Straatmann allowed no runs, hits or walks while registering 10 strikeouts.

For Wentzville, it was 15 batters up, and 15 batters down.

“It was the Tyler Straatmann show,” said Post 320 Manager Cory Cowsert. “He did a great job spotting his fastball and also mixed in his offspead pitches. He had everything working. It was a great performance.”

Straatmann pitched a no-hitter earlier in the season against Sullivan. In two outings this season against Sullivan, he had the no-hitter and the 17-strikeout game.

Pacific (24-3, 18-2) ended the regular season with wins Friday over West 8-3 and Saturday over Wentzville before falling Monday at home to Elsberry in nine innings, 5-4.

The Ninth District Tournament is scheduled to begin this weekend. The bracket will be announced late in the week.

Pacific finished second behind Washington in the regular season standings.

“All in all, it was a phenomenal regular season. We had our highs and lows, but we kept battling,” Cowsert said. “They are such a great group of kids who still have a lot to learn. When they do, they are going to be very good ball players.”

Wentzville

While Straatmann’s perfect game was the highlight against Wentzville, Pacific’s offense produced 13 runs in five innings.

Post 320 scored six runs in the top of the first inning, three in the third and four in the fourth.

Allen Fitzgerald was 4-4 at the plate (one double) with three RBIs, two runs and two stolen bases.

Ryan Howell collected two hits, two runs and two stolen bases.

Ryan Ray added two hits and a run.

Straatmann finished with one hit, one RBI, one run and two stolen bases.

Austin Kennedy notched one hit and two runs.

Ryan Vogelgesang was hit by a pitch twice and stole a base. Drew Fonner was hit by a pitch and stole two bases. Tyler Gerling had one stolen base.

West

Playing against a solid West team, Pacific notched an 8-3 victory at home.

“It was a good team win,” Cowsert said. “West has a good team. They have a good lineup. They were always under control and played with good composure.”

Ryan Howell pitched all seven innings to earn the win. He allowed three runs, two earned, on six hits with three walks and four strikeouts.

Howell kept West off the scoreboard until the visitors scored one run in the top of the sixth inning and two in the seventh.

Pacific scored four runs in the bottom of the fourth inning and four more in the sixth.

“West put the ball in play. Our defense played well. We had two errors, but one of them was on a tough play,” Cowsert said. “Ryan is getting better as the year goes on. He’s getting that bulldog mentality. It’s nice to have Tyler and Ryan at the top of our rotation.”

Gerling reached base three times for Pacific with two hits and a walk to go with one RBI and two runs.

Noah Brocato collected two hits, two RBIs and one run.

Fitzgerald finished with one hit, one walk, one RBI and one run.

Fonner added one hit and one run.

Brendan McMillan walked and scored a run.

Elsberry

Pacific ended the regular season with Monday’s 5-4 home loss to Elsberry in nine innings.

Gerling got the start on the mound for Pacific in a no-decision. In 6.1 innings, he allowed four runs, three earned, on seven hits with one walk and two strikeouts.

“Tyler threw the ball exceptionally well. He put us in a perfect situation to win and was two outs away from getting it,” Cowsert said. “He’s not someone who is going to throw it by guys. He fills up the zone and lets the defense work.”

Drew Fonner pitched the remainder of the game and suffered the loss. He allowed one run on three hits with three walks and two strikeouts.

Fonner paced Pacific at the plate with two hits, two RBIs and one run.

Howell finished with one hit, one walk and two RBIs.

Brocato added one hit, one walk and one run.

Vogelgesang and Straatmann both had one hit. Vogelgesang also walked.

“I would say it’s probably the worst game we’ve played all year. We couldn’t field a ground ball, hit a cutoff man, and the list goes on. Just when I thought we were on the ball and on the right track going into districts with a full head of steam, we hit that wall,” Cowsert said. “I just hope the boys learn from this game and it will light a fire under them to get on the ball and get things done from the beginning of the game until it’s over.”
