if you go to the Schedule Pages you will see the full lists of everyone who played in the tournament this year.

One thing that stood out, Canal's starters, except for one player, all fielded 1.000 for the full tournament. The player who didn't started one less double play than he had errors. Not a bad tradeoff?

Post 1, Patriots Split a DH

By rsl 06/15/2019, 10:45pm EDT

Post 1 scores 11 in the first game, Post 6 11 in the second

Delaware Post 1 started both games of a twin bill at Seaford by scoring a run, and the Nanticoke Post 6 Patriots answered, but that was where the similarity ended.

In the First game, Post 1 took advantage of two errors, one on a wind blown fly ball to go up 2-0 in the first. The Patriots answered with one, and the game settled into a close contest until a disputed play in the outfield where the original call of out was reversed - leaving the bases loaded with 1 out, instead of the inning being over. Post 1 went on to score 4 runs, and the Patriots couldn't answer.

Post 1 got another 4 in the 4th, and added the 10 run rule last run in the sixth. Dalton Reid got the complete game win, Kris Medford took the Loss for the Pats, in a game with 5 errors, and two double plays.

In Game 2, Post 1 again got up 1-0 in the first, but the Patriots answered with 5 as the first 5 batters reached base, and scored, giving the Patriot's pitcher, Kobe Heineke all the runs he'd need to win.

The Pats added 2 in the 2nd and Post 1 added 2 in the 3rd. But the Patriots answered with 1 more run in the 3rd, and added insurance runs in the 5th and 6th inning.

Heinicke settled in and shut out Post 1 for the last 4 innings to earn a complete game win. Post 1's started Jeremiah Glavin took the loss.

There were no extra base hits in either game, and several players had multiple hits on the day. The day ended with both teams on top of their divisions, holding down an early 1 - 2 seed in the league.

Davis throws a Shutout

Fox Post 2 Gets their first win on the road

Hirum Davis struck out 9, and scattered 5 hits, while his teammates of Fox Post 2 avenged Tuesday's loss to the Nanticoke Post 6 Patriots by taking advantage of 2 errors, 6 walks and 7 stolen bases to score 5 runs and defeat the Patriots 5-0 at Seaford, Thursday.

It was the first loss for the Patriots, who still lead the South with a 2-1 record.

Fox's Tre Davis was the star at the plate batting 2 for 4 with 2 runs scored and a double.

Hirum Davis was the winner, Trace Hitchens took the loss. Dylan Nibblett pitched 2 innings of scoreless relief.

Fox next plays Canal Post 25 at home on Tuesday, June 18. The Patriots have a Saturday Double header against the American Legion World Series Champion Delaware Post 1.
