Toppin's 6 shutout Innings too much for Post 7

Post 6 scored 2 unearned runs in the first inning to jump out to an early lead thanks to an RBI single by Mitch Moyer, and a line shot off the glove of the 3rd baseman by Jordan Haddaway. 

Post 7 strung 3 consecutive singles together in the bottom of the first to score a run, with Cameron Beulah getting the RBI single and cutting the lead in half. A 5 pitch 1-2-3 shutdown inning brought Post 7 back up to bat quickly in the bottom of the second.

After Post 7 loaded the bases with no outs, Post 6 brought in Trey Toppin in relief.  Two back to back RBI singles by Blaine Hansen and Will Geppert gave Post 7 the lead as Toppin retired the next 3 batters in order to limit the damage.

Post 7 starting pitcher, Wade Brooks, was lifted after 2 innings due to being on a strict pitch count limit.  He yielded 2 unearned runs on 1 hit, striking out 2.  Michael Robertson came on in relief in the top of the 3rd but walked 5 batters leading to 2 runs scored in the 3rd. 

In the 4th inning Post 6, scored 4 runs on 4 hits and 2 errors, chasing Robertson. Scores came as a result of a Moyer RBI single, followed by a 2 RBI double by Trey Toppin.

Bryan Bullock came on in relief of Robertson in the 4th inning with 1 out and yielded an RBI single to Justin Gray.   He finished the day going 2 2/3 striking out 2 and walking 1.  Cameron Beulah came on in relief of Bullock and pitched a scoreless 7th, striking out 2.
Despite outhitting their opponents 11-6, Post 7 was limited to all singles on the day going mostly station to station while stranding 12 runners on base.

Bryan Bullock lead the offense for Post 7 with 3 hits while Blaine Hansen and Ethan Hurd each had two hits apiece.  For Post 6, Moyer chipped in 2 hits and Toppin reached base 4 times.

Post 6 Pitcher Trey Toppin continued his 3 game streak of not allowing any earned runs.
