The highlight of the game for Post 218 came in the bottom of the sixth inning, where it turned a triple play.

With runners at first and second bases with no outs and the hit-and-run on, Fike hit a line drive to shortstop Seth Bollmann, who made the catch for the first out, flipped the ball to second baseman Aaron Meyer for the second out, who then relayed it to first baseman Nate Hillermann to complete the triple play.

Fike grabbed a 3-0 lead with three runs in the bottom of the first inning and never looked back.

Andrew Olsen tossed all seven innings for the win.

Ross Seitter paced the Post 218 offense with two hits.

Fike came back and defeated Glendale Saturday in the losers’ bracket final, 11-0, in five innings.
