Winning three times this weekend, the Washington Post 218 Senior Legion squad stayed perfect in Ninth District action.

Post 218 (12-3, 9-0) beat Daniel Boone Friday, 12-2, Mattoon, Ill., Saturday, 5-1, and Elsberry Sunday, 7-0.

Anther game with Alton, Ill., was rained out Saturday with Washington leading 2-0.

Post 218 is idle until Wednesday, when it plays twice in the Washington Post 218 Tournament.

“I really like the way our game has come around as we are about to start our wood bat tournament,” Post 218 Manager Mike Gardner said.

The Post 218 pool games are:

• Wednesday against Manchester at Borgia at 1 p.m.;

• Wednesday against Thoman Boothe at Borgia at 3:30 p.m.;

• Friday against Dunklin County at Ronsick Field at 7:30 p.m.; and

• Saturday against Springfield at Ronsick Field at 7:30 p.m.

Daniel Boone

The schedule worked out with an old-fashioned home-and-home series with Daniel Boone with the return game being played at Rotary Recreational Complex - Ronsick Field Friday night.

And, sticking with the heritage theme, Washington honored members of its state championship teams. Players, coaches and managers in attendance were recognized on the field prior to the contest.

Members of the 1957 state championship team threw out first pitches. Also recognized were the 1989 Seniors, the 2005 Juniors, the 2012 Seniors and 2012 Freshmen.

On the field, it took a while for Washington to get wound up against a shorthanded Daniel Boone squad.

Washington scored twice in the first and added single runs in the second and third, but were held for the next two frames.

Meanwhile, Daniel Boone got two runs back in the top of the fifth.

Post 218 scored twice in the sixth, twice in the seventh and four times in the eighth to cap its second consecutive mercy rule win over Daniel Boone.

“We continued to hit the ball well banging out 14 hits and scoring 12 runs against Daniel Boone,” Gardner said. “It allowed us to get some playing time to just about every position player.”

Jared Walde went seven innings to earn the win. He allowed two runs on six hits and two walks. He struck out six Post 262 players.

Matt Jones pitched the eighth and struck out three.

“Jared Walde threw really well only giving up the two runs over seven innings of work,” Gardner said. “He was consistently in the strike zone with 68 percent of his pitches being strikes. Matt Jones came in and looked really sharp striking out the side in the eighth.”

Offensively, Post 218 rapped out 14 hits.

Trent Leimkuehler, Jones, Jack Kopmann and Luke Hasenjaeger posted two hits apiece.

Tyler Tuepker, Andrew Sumner, Noah Borgerding, Sam Katzung, Zach Pointer and Justin Schuler each had one hit.

Schuler tripled while Hasenjaeger hit a double. Gardner noted it was Schuler’s second consecutive night with a triple.

Kopmann scored three runs while Leimkuehler and Hasenjaeger each scored twice. Sumner, Jones, Borgerding, Katzung and Schuler each scored once.

Schuler drove home two. Leimkuehler, Jones, Borgerding, Kopmann and Eckelkamp each had one RBI.

Katzung walked twice. Kopmann and Dilan Bollmann each walked once.

Schuler and Leimkuehler added sacrifices. Tuepker and Ben Huffman stole bases.

Daniel Griffith and Bryan Dryden each posted two hits for Daniel Boone.

Mattoon

Post 218 visited Alton, Ill., Saturday and got one game in before rain hit.

Washington beat Mattoon, Ill., by a 5-1 score. Washington was winning 2-0 in the third inning over Alton when rain hit and washed out the rest of the game.

“We were really impressed with the facilities at the Gordon Moore complex in Alton,” said Gardner. “I think the atmosphere helped a little with our enthusiasm to play as we really came out and were aggressive in all aspects of our play.”

Against Mattoon, Post 218 scored three times in the top of the first, once in the fifth and once in the sixth. Mattoon scored its run in the bottom of the sixth.

Pointer went the distance for Post 218, allowing one run on five hits and two hit batters. He struck out four.

“Zach Pointer was on the mound for us and pitched the kind of game we know he is capable of pitching,” Gardner said. “I was really impressed on how he was able to pitch around a couple of tough errors. We were able to jump on top early and I really felt like we were in control of the entire game.”

Borgerding led the way at the plate with two hits.

Eckelkamp, Bollmann, Jones, Tony Helfrich, Hasenjaeger and Katzung each had one hit.

Bollmann scored twice. Borgerding, Jones and Hasenjaeger each scored once.

Jones drove in two while Helfrich, Katzung and Huffman each had one RBI.

Schuler drew a walk. Eckelkamp was hit by a pitch. Bollmann stole a base.

Katzung and Huffman sacrificed.

In the Alton game, Washington had scored twice in the second inning and had two runners aboard in the third when the game was called due to rain.

“We were ahead 2-0 in the bottom of the third and were threatening with two runners on and nobody out when the rain hit and washed out the game,” Gardner said. “Again, I felt like we were in control of the game.”

Hasenjaeger, Jones, Huffman and Kopmann had hits. Huffman and Kopmann recorded back-to-back triples.

Huffman and Kopmann scored runs. Kopmann had an RBI and Eckelkamp walked.

Jones was hit by a pitch and Hasenjaeger stole a base.

Schuler was on the hill and threw three innings while allowing one hit and one walk. He struck out two.

“Justin Schuler started on the mound and he was dominating the first three innings,” Gardner said.

Elsberry

Washington returned home Sunday and won by a shutout in Ninth District action over Elsberry, 7-0.

Washington scored its runs in the fifth and sixth innings. Post 218 scored five times in the fifth and twice in the sixth.

“It took us a couple of times through the batting order before we were able to score some runs,” Gardner said. “Sometimes that can happen when you are facing a good pitcher and you need to make the proper adjustments. We again did not make any errors in a tough district game.”

Tuepker scattered five hits over eight innings while striking out eight Elsberry batters.

“Tyler Tuepker was again very good on the mound for us,” Gardner said. “He was never really in any trouble scattering five hits and striking out eight in his eight innings of work. Our pitchers are really taking control of every game.”

Offensively, Bollmann, Leimkuehler, Helfrich and Kopmann each had two hits. Both of Leimkuehler’s hits were doubles as was one of Kopmann’s hits.

Eckelkamp, Jones and Borgerding each had one hit.

Eckelkamp and Bollmann scored twice while Jones, Borgerding and Helfrich each scored once.

Leimkuehler, Borgerding, Katzung and Kopmann drove in runs. Jones and Katzung walked.

Eckelkamp and Katzung were hit by pitches. Helfrich stole a base.

Joe Inglefritz went the distance on the hill for Elsberry.
