With three victories in two days, the Washington Post 218 Seniors claimed the Ninth District regular season championship.

Washington (25-3, 17-0) notched wins Tuesday at Fireman’s Park over Wentzville 12-9 and Wednesday at Ronsick Field over Warrenton 16-6 and St. Charles, 4-2.

“We reached one of our goals by winning the district regular season. Hopefully we can win our last regular season game and go undefeated,” said Post 218 Manager Mike Gardner. “I am really proud that all three teams (Seniors, Juniors and Freshmen) won their regular season district titles.”

Washington plays Saturday at Ste. Genevieve against New Baden, Ill., at 2:30 p.m., and Murphysboro, Ill., at 5 p.m.

Post 218 travels to Festus Sunday to meet Festus at noon and Jackson at 3 p.m.

Wentzville

It was a far cry from the last time Washington met Wentzville, which ended in a 23-3 Post 218 victory.

During Tuesday’s rematch at Wentzville, Post 218 held the lead for the entire game, but never pulled away in a 12-9 victory.

“Give Wentzville credit. They kept battling and didn’t give up,” said Gardner. “We didn’t give in. We scored some more runs.”

Washington used four pitchers in the contest.

Luke Hasenjaeger got the start on the mound and earned the win. In three plus innings, he allowed five runs on two hits with three walks and two strikeouts.

“Luke was really sharp his first three innings,” Gardner said. “In the fourth inning, Luke lost his control and we brought in Brendan Feldmann.”

Making his first appearance since early in the season, Brendan Feldmann worked two scoreless innings in relief. He struck out three batters while giving two hits and one walk.

“It was Brendan’s first action since early in the year,” Gardner said. “He looked good and gave us two strong innings.”

Zach Pointer worked the next three frames. He allowed four runs on three hits with two walks and no strikeouts.

Matt Jones pitched a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save. He walked two batters and struck out three.

“Matt came in and shut them down in the ninth to secure the victory,” Gardner said.

Washington collected 15 hits in the contest.

Dilan Bollmann was 4-6 at the plate with a double, three runs, one RBI and two stolen bases.

Jones was 3-5 with three RBIs.

Trent Leimkuehler was 3-6 with a double four RBIs.

Grant Eckelkamp finished with two hits (one double), was hit by a pitch, and added two runs and one RBI.

Justin Schuler reached base three times with one hit and two walks to go with three runs scored.

Ben Huffman also was on base three times with a hit and two walks.

Noah Borgerding added one hit, one walk, was hit by a pitch and scored one run.

Jack Kopmann and Sam Katzung both drew a walk. Katzung also reached on an error.

“We jumped on them scoring early and often,” Gardner said. “Dilan, Trent and Matt supplied most of our offense.”

Post 218 jumped to an 8-0 lead with one run in the top of the first inning, three in the third and four in the fourth.

Wentzville made the score 8-5 with five runs in the bottom of the fourth inning.

Washington added three runs in the fifth and one in the eighth. Wentzville added two runs in the sixth and eighth.

Warrenton

Washington won in seven innings over Warrenton, 16-6.

Warrenton took a 4-0 lead with four runs in the top of the first inning, but Post 218 responded with four runs in the bottom of the first, two in the second, three in the fourth, four in the fifth, two in the sixth and one in the seventh.

“We struggled a little with the strike zone early in the game and Warrenton took advantage, jumping out to an early lead,” Gardner said. “We responded well, eventually took the lead and finished the game in seven innings.”

Tyler Murray pitched the first five innings for the win. He allowed six runs on four hits with four walks and two strikeouts.

Matt Jones, sixth inning, and Andrew Sumner, seventh, both pitched a scoreless frame in relief. Jones struck out the side. Sumner had one strikeout.

Leimkuehler reached base five times with three hits (one double and one triple) and two walks to go with three RBIs and three runs.

Jones added two hits (one double) and was hit by a pitch, to go with four RBIs and two runs.

Schuler collected two hits, one walk, two RBIs and one run.

Eckelkamp had one hit and was hit by a pitch twice, to go with one RBI and three runs.

Kopmann finished with one hit (double), one RBI and two runs.

Todd Kleekamp had a walk, was hit by a pitch and scored three runs. Borgerding added one walk and was hit by a pitch, to go with one RBI and one run. Sumner walked and scored.

St. Charles

Washington took an early lead with two runs in the bottom of the first inning, which turned out to be the difference in a 4-2 win over St. Charles.

Post 218 added single runs in the sixth and seventh innings. St. Charles scored a run in the top of the fourth and eighth frames.

“It was a really well played game by both teams,” Gardner said. “Fortunately, we were able to score two in the first against a really good pitcher.”

Jared Walde got the start on the mound and earned the win. In 7.2 innings, he allowed two runs on four hits with five walks and four strikeouts.

Leimkuehler worked the final 1.1 innings for the save, registering two strikeouts.

Sam Melliere pitched the first seven innings for St. Charles and suffered the loss. He allowed four runs on nine hits with no walks and 11 strikeouts.

Eckelkamp and Leimkuehler both had two hits and scored a run for Post 218.

Hasenjaeger, Bollmann, Jones, Borgerding, Kopmann and Schuler each added one hit.

Bollmann and Schuler both scored a run. Jones and Hasenjaeger both had one RBI.

“Jared pitched a great game and Trent came in to close it out,” Gardner said. “It was the kind of game we’ll need to win in the upcoming Blue Springs Tournament and district playoffs.”
