With a run in the bottom of the seventh inning, the Pacific Post 320 Juniors won their home opener Wednesday night.

Pacific (4-0) broke a 2-2 tie in the seventh inning, scoring on a bases loaded wild pitch in a 3-2 victory over St. Charles at Pacific High School.

“Scoring on a wild pitch is not the prettiest way to win a game, but this is baseball and a win is a win,” said Post 320 Manager Cory Cowsert. “Our pitching has been very good. You can’t ask for more than what our pitchers have given us. We’re struggling a little offensively. Most of our kids haven’t swung a wood bat much, if ever. Hopefully we’ll get better at it and be able to score a few more runs.”

With the game tied in the bottom of the seventh inning, Pacific’s Ryan Vogelsang was hit by a pitch to get the rally started.

With two outs, Noah Boyer delivered a pinch-hit single and Alex Rice drew a walk to load the bases.

With Drew Fonner at the plate, Vogelsang raced home on a pitch to the backstop, sliding home for the victory.

Ryan Howell got the start on the mound for Post 320 in a no-decision. In five innings of work, he allowed two runs on four hits with four walks and six strikeouts.

“Ryan pitched well. He kept us in the game,” Cowsert said. “He worked behind in the count more than he normally does. He usually does a good job pitching ahead in the count.”

Drew Fonner tossed two perfect innings in relief for the win. He struck out five of the six batters he faced.

“Drew called me during the high school baseball season and told me he couldn’t pitch during the Legion season because his arm was hurt,” Cowsert said. “His arm is feeling better since then and I told him that I would use him more as our closer to cut down on his innings. He’s happy about that.”

Both teams had four hits in the game.

Leading the way for Post 320 was Allen Fitzgerald, who collected two hits.

Tanner Brown and Boyer both finished with one hit. Brown added one RBI and one run.

Rice walked three times and scored a run. Vogelsang was hit by a pitch and scored a run.
