Post 1 Recruits players from the Northwest corner of Delaware
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.
Post 1 took a commanding lead by putting up 6 runs on 6 hits in the first inning and never looked back.
Shane Lougheed led the way going 3 for 3 with 2 doubles 4 RBI’s
Joe Setting followed with a triple and 2 singles scoring all 3 times.
The starting pitcher was Kevin Williams pitching 3 innings of shutout ball allowing 2 hits with 3K’s no walks and threw 44 pitches
Michael Spadea relieved pitching 2 innings. Walker 3 struck out 2 and gave up 1 hit, a three run home run.
