Taking the lead early and holding on late, the Washington Post 218 Freshman Legion team recorded a 4-2 victory over West Wednesday at Rotary Recreational Complex - Ronsick Field.

“It was a good win against a quality program,” Post 218 Manager Scott Forrester said.

Post 218 (8-6, 4-3) hosts Wentzville in Ninth District action Friday at Rotary Recreational Complex - Ronsick Field starting at 6 p.m.

“We have been on a good stretch here lately and things are getting better each day,” Forrester said. “I am still a little concerned about our offense, but we will continue to work on improving this area. So far the players have been very receptive and made the adjustments we have asked for.”

On Saturday, Washington hosts Ste. Genevieve in a doubleheader starting at noon.

Festus visits for two games Sunday at Ronsick Field with the opening game starting at noon.

“This weekend will be a good test for our program playing a doubleheader each day,” Forrester said. “Ste. Genevieve and  Festus both have very good programs.”

Washington stays busy next week, visiting Creve Coeur at Parkway West High School Monday at 5:30 p.m.

New Haven comes to town for league action Tuesday at 6 p.m.


Post 218 overcame a scare in the top of the first when West advanced a runner all the way to third with one out before Zach Finley struck out two batters to keep it scoreless.

“Zach Finley pitched well and kept us in the game all night,” Forrester said.

Post 218 responded with a run in the bottom of the first and then added another run in the third.

Each team scored once in the fourth. Washington took a two-run lead again in the bottom of the sixth. West rallied for a final run in the seventh.

Finley went six innings, allowing an unearned run on three hits. He struck out eight batters.

Drew Piontek threw the final inning, allowing a run on two hits.

Forrester credited Teddy Meyer with playing a huge role in the victory.

“I was most impressed with Teddy Meyer,” Forrester said. “He seems to be developing into one of the team leaders on the team. Teddy was not going to let his team lose last night and he displayed that in his play both offensively and defensively.”

Offensively, Meyer had a hit, two runs, an RBI, two walks and three stolen bases. He also was hit by a pitch.

“Teddy has stepped up to the plate and helped the team by stabilizing our catching,” Forrester said. “He threw a runner out trying to steal second base. Offensively he got on base and stole second and then third and scored a run on a passed ball. He did the same thing when reaching on a HBP. He stole his way to third and scored again on a hit by Matt Piontek. He displayed a take ownership mentality by acting courageously and using seasoned judgment. He was the spark the team needed.”

Washington had just four hits in the game and Matt Piontek, Quinton Poepsel and Tommy Ruether also singled.

Ruether stole a base and Matt Piontek drove in a run.

Maguire Landwehr reached base three times on two walks and was hit by a pitch. He scored a run and stole two bases.

Tyler Patton walked, stole a base and scored. Jeff Peters had two stolen bases.

Eli Marquart was hit on the elbow by a pitch and forced to leave the game.

Tyler Mueller had three hits for West, including two doubles.
