It was feast or famine for the Washington Post 218 Senior Legion team at the Zone 1 Tournament in Moberly.

Among the statistical oddities from the tournament is the fact that Washington did not score just one run in an inning over the five games.

“Although we did not hit as well as we did all year we did score plenty of runs in the zone tournament,” Post 218 Manager Mike Gardner said. “It was really strange how we only scored in bunches.”

Post 218 (36-10) saw its season end Sunday at the Zone 1 Tournament in Moberly.

Post 218 reached the winner-take-all game before losing to Jefferson City Post 5, 7-2.

Washington played five games in the tournament, but only faced two of the other four teams.

Post 218 swept West, eliminating their Ninth District rival from the event with two victories.

And Washington took one of three from Zone 1 champion Jefferson City, going 1-2 against Post 5.

Team Statistics

Washington scored its 32 runs in the tournament in nine different innings, always putting a crooked number on the board when it did push runners across the plate.

Washington’s most productive inning was the top of the fifth Saturday night against West. That turned a 4-0 deficit into an 8-4 lead in what turned out to be an 8-5 victory.

Overall, the fifth inning was Washington’s most productive of the tournament. Post 218 scored 12 runs in the fifth inning of its games.

The sixth inning yielded five runs while Washington scored two runs in the second, fourth, seventh and ninth innings.

On the other side, opposing teams scored in every inning but the fourth.

The opponents managed three runs in the first (all in the final game), one in the second, five in the third, seven in the fifth, one in the sixth, four in the seventh, four in the eighth and two in the ninth.

That gave the opposing teams a 27-25 edge in overall runs for the five games.

Opposing teams outhit Washington, 47-32, but also made more errors, 10-8.

Opposing teams drew 23 walks to 16 for Washington. Post 218 batters were hit five times to just two for the foes.

Washington made up for allowing more runners by forcing the opponents to strand 51 on base. Washington left 28 runners on base during the tournament.

Offensively, Post 218 batters recorded a .246 batting average with a .342 on-base percentage.

“Our overall batting average at the Zone Tournament was lower than what we hit all year but our batting average with runners in scoring position at the Zone was much higher,” Gardner said. “So, I guess if we could have put more runners on base then we might just have won the tournament.”

Washington pitchers had a 3.60 ERA during the tournament, while giving up 47 hits and 23 walks in 45 innings. Post 218 hurlers struck out 26 batters.

Washington pitchers hit two batters and added three wild pitches. Opposing teams hit .260 against Washington with a .346 on-base percentage.

“I also felt like some of our pitchers just did not throw enough strikes,” Gardner said. “Our team WHIP was pretty high and that makes it tough on your pitchers and defense when the other team constantly has runners on base.”

Post 218 recorded a .936 fielding percentage with 13 errors in the tournament. Some of those errors were caused by the extremely hard surface at the Howard Hills Complex. All teams had fielders who saw balls take high bounces which gave opponents extra bases.

Post 218 was the home team in four of the five games, going 2-2 in those contests. Post 218 was the visitor once, winning the second game over West.

“When you have a five-team tournament and three of the teams are very good and much better than the other two it is really tough to come out of the losers’ bracket,” Gardner said. “We especially had a tough road as we only played West and Jeff City in the tournament and they did not have to play each other. So, they could save their best pitchers for just us.”

Batting Statistics

Per statistics kept by The Missourian, Washington’s top batter for the tournament was a replacement.

Andrew Sumner filled in at second base for Dilan Bollmann in the opening game of the tournament and went 2-4 for a .500 batting average. He had two singles with three RBIs.

Among the regulars, Noah Borgerding and Grant Eckelkamp led Post 218 with .368 batting averages.

Borgerding also had one double, four runs and one RBI. He added one sacrifice fly and a bunt.

Eckelkamp had seven singles, two runs, two RBIs, three walks and one stolen base. He was hit three times by pitches. He led Post 218 with a .520 on-base percentage.

Trent Leimkuehler, completing his six-year run with Post 218 teams, hit .333 with two doubles and one triple. He scored two runs and drove in five. He walked twice and stole one base.

Matt Jones batted .235 with one double. He scored three runs while leading Washington in walks with four. He was hit by one pitch.

Tony Helfrich batted .222 for the tournament, recording three doubles with six runs and four RBIs. One of his hits was a bunt. He walked twice and was hit by one pitch.

Sam Katzung played in four games and batted .200. He had three singles, two runs, three RBIs and one walk.

Luke Hasenjaeger batted .188 with two runs, three RBIs and two walks. He put down two sacrifice bunts.

Jack Kopmann hit .118 with two hits. One of them was a triple. He scored four runs with two RBIs and three walks. He also contributed two sacrifice bunts.

Dilan Bollmann batted .111 over four games with one triple, three runs and two walks.

Jared Walde walked and scored while going hitless in two at-bats.

Ben Huffman had one at-bat.

Pitching Statistics

Three Washington pitchers did not allow an earned run in the tournament.

Zach Pointer threw five innings over two games while allowing three hits and five walks. He also hit one batter while striking out two.

Leimkuehler earned a save (second West game), throwing two-thirds of an inning and retiring both batters he faced.

Matt Jones pitched in the final game, allowing two unearned runs over 4.1 innings. He gave up three hits and two walks while striking out four.

Brendan Feldmann pitched in two games, earning a save (first West game) and suffering a loss (first Jefferson City game).

Feldmann had a 1.13 ERA for the tournament while tossing eight innings. He allowed five runs (one earned) on 10 hits and two walks. He struck out seven batters.

Tyler Tuepker earned one win (first West game), one loss (last Jefferson City game) and a save (second Jefferson City game). In 15.2 innings, he posed a 4.02 ERA while allowing nine runs (seven earned) on 16 hits and five walks. He struck out five and hit one batter.

Jared Walde pitched in two games, winning the second game against West. Over six innings, he allowed three runs on six hits and seven walks while striking out three batters. Walde struggled in his first outing, but came back to throw 5.2 innings in the second game against West to earn the victory.

Justin Schuler pitched 1.1 innings with a 6.75 ERA. He allowed one run on one hit and one walk. He struck out one.

Hasenjaeger threw 2.2 innings while allowing four runs (two earned) on five hits and four walks. He struck out two.

Sumner was the winning pitcher in the first championship game against Jefferson City. He relieved Pointer and threw 1.1 innings while allowing two runs on three hits. He struck out two batters.
