It’s not the way the Washington Post 218 Senior Legion team wanted to complete pool play.

But by taking two games Friday night at Rotary Recreational Complex - Ronsick Field, the Post 218 Seniors won their pool championship.

Washington (11-6) beat Mayfield, Ky., in the first game Friday, 12-2, and then topped Farmington in the second contest in eight innings, 4-2.

Originally, Post 218 had been scheduled to play only Mayfield, but Farmington did not come Thursday for the scheduled tournament game. Washington was able to rearrange the schedule to let Farmington play its other games on Friday.

“I am really not sure why they did not make their game on Thursday,” Post 218 Manager Mike Gardner said. “I was told that they did not get the revised schedule even though it was emailed at least on three occasions with several additional emails asking everyone to make sure that they use the revised schedule.”

Mayfield

Although the final score was a 10-run win for Post 218, that was somewhat misleading.

Washington, the visiting team for the game, scored once in the second and added a run in the third.

Mayfield scored once in the third and each team scored once in the fifth.

It was 3-2 when Post 218 blew the game open in the top of the seventh with seven runs.

“It was a tight game until the seventh when we were able to put some hits together and Mayfield helped us out a little with a few miscues that allowed us to break the game wide open,” Gardner said.

Aaron Meyer was the hitting star of the game with four hits. He needed just a home run for the cycle. Meyer scored twice and drove in a pair of runs.

Seth Bollmann, Austin Finder and Spencer Juergens each had two singles.

Bollmann scored and drove in a pair. Finder scored twice and drove in one run while adding a sacrifice. Juergens scored a run.

Noah Borgerding, Todd Kleekamp and Sam Katzung had one hit each.

Borgerding scored once, drove in a run and was hit by a pitch. Kleekamp scored twice.

Ross Seitter walked twice, drove in a run, stole a base and sacrificed.

Lefty Justin Schuler pitched six innings and earned the win.

“Justin Schuler gave us a great pitching performance,” said Gardner.

Schuler allowed two unearned runs on six hits and three walks. He fanned eight.

Justin Baylard pitched the final inning, allowing one walk. He struck out a batter.

“It was great to have a team from Kentucky in the tournament and we really hope that they will be back,” Gardner said.

Farmington

The main event took place to close out the night as Washington and Farmington fought for the pool championship.

“The winner of the Farmington game was going to be the No. 1 seed in our pool and both teams were really into the game,” Gardner said.

That led to some chatter between the dugouts and some tension on the field.

“Their pitcher was really sharp early in the game and was really dominating us,” Gardner said. “Mitch Hammack threw a quality game for us. He had an inning where he lost his control a little but regrouped quickly and pitched great the rest of the game.”

Hammack lasted 6.1 innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits and four walks. He struck out seven.

Farmington scored twice in the second while Washington fought back with a run in the fourth and another one in the top of the seventh. Post 218 then won it with two more runs in the top of the eighth.

“We were able to push across a couple of runs late in the game on a few timely hits that sent the game into extra innings,” Gardner said. “Getting into their bullpen was big for us as it allowed us to put up two big runs in the top of the eighth on a big hit off the bat of Noah Borgerding. Nate Hillermann also came up big with a timely RBI and coming into the game on the mound to get us out of a bases-loaded situation with only one out.”

Hillermann picked up the win, going two-thirds of an inning in relief of Hammack. It was his first mound work of the season as he just has been cleared to return to play after breaking two bones in his lower leg during a freak accident in the high school season.

Logan Holdmeyer earned the save, pitching the final inning. He fanned two batters.

Offensively, Washington had five hits, but they were big ones. Baylard and Hillermann each doubled.

Hillermann drove in a run with his hit.

Borgerding had a single and two RBIs.

Finder had one hit and a walk and scored twice.

Juergens posted one hit. Bollmann had a sacrifice and Aaron Meyer was hit by a pitch.

The loss knocked Farmington into a consolation game against Jefferson City on Saturday, though the team declined to return.

“I was told that they did not want to play on Saturday because it was a consolation game and they had some key district games coming up so they did not have any pitchers available,” Gardner said.

Notes

Post 218 hosted its Bikes N’ Tykes night during the evening with 21 motorcycles participating in the event.

Cindy Rajkovich earned first place in the bike contest with Mike Davis second, Christy White third and Jerry Dyson fourth. Winners received plaques.

The event had been scheduled earlier in the season for a Friday night game, but that was rained out.
