The run support was more than enough for Zach Finley.

Finley didn’t allow a run as the Washington Post 218 Freshman Legion baseball team earned a dominating 14-0 victory over Wentzville on Thursday at Fireman’s Park.

The game lasted just five innings, but Washington put up 14 runs on nine hits.

On the other hand, Finley allowed only one hit and one walk while striking out 12 in the shutout win.

Post 218 scored six runs in the first inning and held a 9-0 lead after three innings. A five-run fourth blew the game open even further.

Finley got it done at the plate, too. He went 2-2 with three RBIs. Matt Piontek went 3-3 with three RBIs and two runs scored, while Teddy Meyer drove in two runs and also crossed the plate twice. Eli Marquart and Thomas Ruether had one RBI apiece. Drew Piontek, Matt Piontek, Quinton Poepsel and Ruether all scored twice.

Ryan Eberhart had the only hit for Wentzville. Jacob Traynor drew his team’s lone walk.

Washington will play at West on Wednesday at 8:30 p.m.

New Haven

Post 218 edged New Haven, 6-5, on Tuesday night at Rotary Recreational Complex - Ronsick Field.

Washington was down 3-0 before rallying late in the win over New Haven.

Post 218 scored three runs in the key fourth inning before adding two late runs to pull ahead for good.

“It was scary there for awhile,” Manager Scott Forrester said of the New Haven game. “I think Hansi Bloc had his team much better prepared than we did. Coach (Jordan) Bierbaum said it best. It was kind of like an old western. The good, the bad and the ugly. The “good” was our pitching and we pulled out the win. The “bad” was the hitting and the “ugly” was our defense. I think we may have had as many errors in this one game as we have had over the last seven games. After a game like that sometimes a team needs a little tough love and last night Coach Bierbaum gave some out. It’s really important at this point in the year to maintain our focus and keep our number-one goal in mind. That goal is to win our district and get to the state championship.”

Thomas Ruether went 2-3 with three RBIs and one run scored for Post 218. Tyler Patton and Zach Finley drove in one run apiece, while Finley and Teddy Meyer had two hits apiece. Nathan Breckenkamp scored two runs.

“Offensively, Tommy Ruether, Teddy Meyer and Zach Finley led the way,” Forrester said.

Zach Stahlman went all seven innings on the hill for the hosts, striking out six and allowing just one earned run.

“Zach Stahlman pitched well,” Forrester said. “He went the distance and kept us in the game. Once again he had a good first-pitch strike count of 22. However, his defense let him down on more than one occasion. When you give a team four or five outs every inning it doesn’t matter who you’re playing, it’s going to be tough to get a win. Fortunately the defense stabilized a bit and the offense did what we needed to do to get the win.

Alwine had three RBIs for New Haven, while Matthew Wade drove in one run. Cody Boyd scored twice. Joshua Schroer took the loss on the mound, allowing five earned runs in six innings. He struck out seven.
