Diving catch in outfield saves game 1

Tied 2-2 going into the 6th,  Post 10 scores 2 runs to take the lead.   Post 7 rallies in the 7th to score a run to close it to 4-3 and with 2 out in the bottom of the 7th, with runners on 2nd and 3rd, left fielder Brad Kaden makes a diving catch on a sinking line drive to end the game.

Zack Lesher led the way for Post 10 in game 1 with 2 hits and 2 runs scored.   Will Geppert had 2 hits including a double and Blaine Hansen also doubled for Post 7.

Starting pitcher Josh Venti got the no decision  going 4 2/3  striking out 7.   Brown came on in relief to pick up the win striking out 4.

Cameron Beulah went the distance for Post 7 on just 82 pitches yielding 7 hits (all singles) , no walks and 2 K's.   

In Game 2, Post 3 jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the 2nd inning on consecutive RBI singles Cameron Beulah, Jimmy Kucharzyk, and Will Geppert but Post 10 pitcher Holler settled down and allowed just 1 hit, a double by Ethan Hurd, the rest of the way in earning the win.

Post 7 starting pitcher, Ryan Bishop,  threw 3 scoreless innings before the defense imploded allowing 2 unearned runs in the 4th.  Bishop was relieved by Bryan Bullock in the 5th,  but 3 more errors allowed 5 runs to score (1 earned) before the inning ended.  The 6th inning wasn't much better defensively as Post 10 pushed 7 runs across (2 earned) to cruise to a 14-3 mercy rule 6 inning victory.

Post 10 collected 9 hits, 4 walks, and took advantage of 8 errors en route to the victory.  Hansen had 3 hits and Warrington had 2 to lead the offense for Post 10.

Holler went the distance for Post 10 collecting the win while yielding  just 4 hits while striking out 9.


State Tournament Expanded to the Top 8 Seeds

The League Expands the field

The Department of Delaware American Legion Baseball Committee has decided to expand the field of the 2018 State tournament to the top 8 teams based on league play.

"We looked at the schedule, and regardless if we play a six or eight team tournament, it would still take 5 days." according to State Chairman Roy Lamberton. "In addition, the top 2 seeds would not play a game until Monday of the tournament. "

"We decided under the new 7 Inning game format, we could play the entire tournament on one field, and all 8 teams would be in action during the first 2 days of the event. The idea is to send our best team to the Mid Atlantic Regional, and that requires a team to play at least 5 games."

The 2018 State Championship Tournament will start July 21st at Wilson Field in New Castle, Delaware. The host team is Stahl Post 30. (article edited July 2nd)


Canal Post 25 Prevails in a See-Saw Battle

By Wayne Hurd 06/27/2018, 10:45pm EDT

Canal's Insurance Run in the 7th Proves to be the difference

Canal Post 25 defeated CKRT Post 7 in DE American Legion baseball Wednesday night in a hard fought, back and forth contest by the score of 5-4.  Ryan Bond tossed 6 innings and yielded 3 runs on 4 hits in earning the win. Connor Megginson toed the rubber for Post 7 also going 6 innings and yielding 4 runs on 6 hits while striking out 7 in defeat.
Offensively Canal was led by Jake Walls who collected 3 hits, 3 stolen bases and scored 2 runs.  Jarrett Wallace had 2 hits including a double.  Post 7 was led by Blaine Hansen at the plate with 2 hits and an RBI, Megginson with a double and 3 RBI and Ethan Hurd with a double.
Canal started the scoring in the 3rd inning when Jake Walls collected a flair single up the middle and promptly stole second.  A line drive off the bat of Joey Lungen past the reach of shortstop Jimmy Kucharzyk plated Wells.  The score remained 1-0 into the bottom of the 5th when Post 7 scratched 3 runs across on 2 walks, a sacrifice, a single by Hansen and a Megginson double.  
The lead was short lived though as Canal loaded the bases with no outs in the top of the 6th with an error and back to back singles.  Ryan Bond stepped up and smacked a 2 rbi double to tie the score at 3.  With 1 out in the inning, Garrett Alexander added a sacrifice fly to give Canal a 4-3 lead.
In the top of the 7th, Kobe Heinicke came on in relief of Megginson for Post 7.  Canal added an insurance run that would prove to be valuable on an RBI single by Colton Duckworth.  Jake Walls came on in relief for Post 25 in the bottom of the 7th inning.  After a strikeout to open the inning, Kobe Heinicke lined a single to right field to get things started for Post 7, followed by a walk and a single by Hansen to load the bases.  An RBI fielders choice closed the score to 5-4.  With runners on 1st and 3rd with 2 out, Walls was able to get a ground ball for the final out earning the save.
With the win Canal improves to 8-4 while Post 7 falls to 1-7.  Canal travels to Smyrna on Thursday 6/28 while Post 7 hosts Post 6 on Thursday 6/28.
