A four-run first inning held up for St. Charles in a 6-2 Freshman Legion baseball victory Wednesday at Pacific.

Post 320 (7-6, 3-3) had opportunities, but failed to take advantage of them.

“The four runs they scored in the top of the first inning set the pace for the rest of the game,” said Post 320 Manager Nathan Bruns. “We tried to play catch up, but our bats just never came alive.”

Pacific had chances late in the game.

“We had the bases loaded in the sixth inning and runners on second and third in the seventh, but both innings ended with a strikeout,” Bruns said. “It was a disappointing loss because we beat St. Charles earlier in the season. They just got to us early in the game and we never recovered.”

Sam Fuchs was the starting pitcher for Post 320 and suffered the loss. In four innings, he allowed five runs, two earned, on eight hits with one walk and two strikeouts.

“Sam threw strikes, but they hit him pretty hard in the first inning,” Bruns said. “He had better results over the next three innings. He did a good job pitching to contact.”

Jacob Michael tossed the final three frames. He allowed one unearned run on two hits with two walks and five strikeouts.

“Jacob did a really solid job,” Bruns said. “He had five strikeouts in three innings. He’s been doing that all season.”

Tristan Longsdon led Pacific’s six-hit attack with two hits.

Reid Dauster, Alex Westermann, Mike Sinnott and Grant Broeder each added one hit.

Elsberry Games

Pacific had games against Elsberry on Wednesday, June 12, and Friday, June 14.

The June 14 contest at Pacific ended in a 2-2 tie after eight innings. It will be continued at a date yet to be determined.

“The umpires thought we could end it in a tie,” Bruns said. “Since it’s a district game, we’ll have to finish it.”

Austin Muich pitched all eight innings for Pacific. He allowed two runs on two hits with one walk and 10 strikeouts.

“Austin pitched a great game,” Bruns said. “He’s definitely our ace. If we need one guy to turn to and win a game, he’s the guy.”

Muich helped himself at the plate with two hits.

Brendan McMillan and Longsdon both had one hit.

Elsberry won the June 12 game at home over Pacific, 7-3.

Ryan Ray got the start on the mound for Pacific and suffered the loss. In two innings, he allowed six runs, four earned, on four hits with two walks and six strikeouts.

Michael worked the final four frames. He allowed one run on no hits with three walks and two strikeouts.

“Jacob pitched four solid innings in relief, not allowing a hit,” Bruns said.

Muich paced the Post 320 offense with two hits.

Tyler Warren, Michael, Westermann and Dauster each added one hit.

“We’ve made too many mental and physical mistakes in our last few games. We need to clear our heads from baseball for a couple of days and figure out what we need to do to get back on track,” Bruns said. “We have a lot of district games left to play. I’m confident that we have the ability to play well and win games like we did early in the season. We just have to be ready to compete each and every day.”
