Marching toward the postseason, the Washington Post 218 Juniors picked up two more victories.

Washington (18-2, 15-1) won on the road at St. Charles Saturday, 11-0, and Monday at St. Peters, 5-2.

Post 218 was rained out Sunday at Central.

Washington hosts West Tuesday at 6 p.m. and New Haven Wednesday also at 6 p.m.

On Saturday, Hannibal visits for a doubleheader starting at noon.

And Washington concludes its regular season at Elsberry Sunday at 2:30 p.m.

St. Charles

Nathaniel Hillermann and Todd Feldmann combined for a one-hit shutout Saturday as Post 218 rolled to an 11-0 win at St. Charles.

Hillermann went six innings, allowing one hit while striking out 10 batters.

“Nate Hillermann started on the bump for us today,” Kleekamp said. “Nate gave us another solid outing. St. Charles had a hard time making solid contact and were only able to scratch out one hit over Nate’s six innings of work striking out 10 times.”

Feldmann pitched the seventh, striking out one.

“Todd Feldmann came into the game in the seventh and did not allow a hit and struck out one,” Kleekamp said. “We have not had a chance to see Todd throw off the mound during a game this year, so it was nice to see him out there. Todd showed he could handle himself well on the mound and will give us another pitcher to use down the stretch if needed.”

Washington scored once in the first and added a run in the third. Post 218 scored twice in the fourth, once in the fifth, twice in the sixth and four times in the seventh inning.

Offensively, Washington batters rapped out 16 hits.

“We definitely brought our bats with us up to St. Charles Saturday,” Kleekamp said. “The boys were taking quality at-bats while still being aggressive at the plate. We hit a lot of balls hard and were able to put 11 runs on the board. There were contributions up and down the lineup. Everyone seemed to have a good day at the plate. We put a lot of runners on early in the game, but it seemed we were unable to get the big hit to put a crooked number on the board. With four runs in the top of the seventh inning, the game was pretty much put out of reach.”

Spencer Juergens and Justin Baylard had three hits apiece.

Juergens doubled and tripled while scoring twice and driving home three.

“Spencer Juergens paced us offensively picking up three hits and three RBIs,” Kleekamp said. “Spencer had a great day. His bat is really starting to heat up.”

Baylard scored twice and drove in one. He also had a sacrifice fly.

Batters with two hits each were Seth Bollmann, Ryan Becszlko and Nick Thiel.

Bollmann scored twice, drove in one, walked and put down a sacrifice bunt.

Becszlko scored twice, drove in two and walked. He also stole two bases.

“Ryan Becszlko also had another good day at the plate as well,” Kleekamp said.

Thiel doubled and scored once.

Ross Seitter, Aaron Meyer, Kyle Summers and Evan Ayers had one hit apiece.

Meyer doubled, scored once, drove in a run and had a sacrifice fly.

Seitter drove in one run. Summers scored, drove in a run, walked and stole a base.

Ayers drove in a run and walked.

John Himmelberg drew a walk.

St. Peters

Going into extra innings Monday at St. Peters, the teams were knotted at 2-2.

Washington scored its runs in the third while St. Peters scored in the fifth.

But Washington got a three-run rally in the top of the eighth frame to go on and win, 5-2.

“It certainly was a wild one in St. Peters,” Kleekamp said. “One of St. Peters’ coaches and a player both were ejected late in the game. Besides all the excitement late in the contest, it really was a well-played game by both teams. If definitely was a character win for our boys. We were able to take advantage of a few walks and put together a rally in the eighth inning to pick up another district victory.”

The rally in the eighth started with an infield hit by Becszlko. Juergens put down a bunt and reached base. Becszlko went to third.

Hillermann walked. Summers then hit a grounder to third and Becszlko was thrown out trying to score for the first out.

With two outs, and the bases loaded, Baylard drew a walk to bring Juergens home with the go-ahead run.

Bollmann hit a grounder and reached on an error as Hillermann and Summers both scored.

Ayers went the distance for Washington on the hill. Over eight innings, he allowed two runs on five hits and two walks. He struck out five.

“Evan has improved each of his last few outings and really came up big in the game,” Kleekamp said. “St. Peters had a few players that we did not see in our first meeting, who could really hit the ball. Evan kept everyone in check and delivered his best outing of the season.”

Offensively, Washington had seven hits in the game.

Seitter, Juergens and Hillermann each had two hits.

Seitter doubled, scored and walked.

“Ross Seitter also did his best Willie Mays impression making a fantastic catch running down a fly ball early in the game facing the outfield fence,” Kleekamp said.

Juergens scored a run and had the sacrifice in the eighth.

Hillermann scored a run, walked and sacrificed.

Becszlko had one hit.

Bollmann walked, scored and stole a base. Meyer walked and drove in a run. Summers walked and scored. Baylard walked and drove in a run.
