Post 8 sweeps doubleheader vs Huron by Dan Hoblick KCCR Radio

Friday, June 28, 2013

Post 8 swept a doubleheader vs Huron last night at Hyde Stadium by scores of 9-1 and 11-10.

In game one, Willie Welch pitched his third consecutive complete game, giving up one earned and striking out six.

According to Post 8 baseball coach Matt Sisk, with Welch's dominance in game one it provided confidence for the rest of the team.


The score remained 1-1 for a majority of the baseball game until the fifth inning when Gage Curtis and Alex Gray would triple. Gray and Curtis would both come home to score. Austin Wagner would score the third run of the fifth inning when Cash Anderson would double for one of his three hits in game one. Post 8 would lead 4-1 after five innings of play.


In the next inning Post 8 used a furious offensive surge which started with a two run single from Gage Curtis. A few batters later with the bases loaded, Cash Anderson ripped a monster double to the gap, clearing the bases. Post 8 would sit down Huron in order in the top of the seventh to take game one. Cash Anderson finished 3/4 on the night with four RBI's. Gage Curtis was right behind Anderson on the stat sheet finishing 2/3 and two RBI's. Coach Matt Sisk mentioned after last night's game that his team finally produced the hits that he has wanted in the last few weeks of the season.


Game two of the doubleheader proved to be a thrilling game for both teams. Huron jumped out early on Post 8. Gage Curtis got the start and gave up three earned runs but left in the first inning due to injury.

Huron would have the lead until the bottom of the fourth inning. Alec Norwick led off with a triple and would later score one of his four runs on the night. Post 8 would go on to score five runs and take a 7-6 lead.

Huron would have answer for the first time in game two and they responded by scoring three run in the top of the fifth to lead 9-7.

Huron would plate another run in the top of the seventh.


Facing a 10-7 deficit in the bottom of the seventh, Alec Norwick and Ryan Goodwin led off the inning with back to back singles. They would come home after a monster shot by Blake Dean hit the left wall. Dean would later score to tie the game after a triple by Austin Wagner. With one out in the bottom of the seventh, Cash Anderson drove in his only run of the game with a walk off double as Post 8 dug deep and pulled off the victory in thrilling fashion.

Thursday, June 27, 2013
The defending state legion baseball champions, the Brookings Bandits took care of business on their home field last night and defeated Post 8 by scores of 16-6 and 8-5. In game one, pitching was very shaky for Post 8. Coach Matt Sisk was forced to dig into his bullpen early on when Graham Protexter gave up four earned in the first two innings of play.
Brookings would go on to score 11 runs in the first four innings of play to take a commanding 11-3 lead. Post 8 would receive contributions from Alex Gray, who scored two runs, and Cash Anderson who drove home two. The Bandits just had to much offense throughout game one. Every batter for Brookings at least scored a run. Post 8 fell victim to the mercy rule in the bottom of the sixth when the score hit 16-6.
In game two, a much improved game from the Post 8 legion baseball team as they battled right down to the final inning but came up short 8-5 to the Bandits.
Brookings took an early 2-0 lead in the first inning of play thanks to a single by Thomas McMacken. Later in the top of the second Austin Wagner and Graham Protexter scored on consecutive wild pitches to tie the game. The Bandits would later break that tie in the bottom of the second after Trevor Puetz singled to drive in Mack Burns. The Bandits led 3-2. Brookings would cushion their lead to 6-2 in the third inning after three more runners touched home plate. Post 8 once again trimmed the deficit as Austin Wagner was able to drive home Cash Anderson courtesy of a sacrifice fly. Blake Dean would come home to score right after thanks to a single from Carson Eisenbeisz as Post 8 only trailed 6-4. Brookings matched Post 8 once again as two more scored in the bottom of the fourth innings to lead 8-4 and that proved to be all Brookings needed. Ryan Goodwin in came across home plate in the top of the seventh and Post 8 dropped game two 8-5.
Post 8 reached the midway point of their season last night after dropping both games of the doubleheader to Brookings. Post 8 sits 10-13-1 overall on the year. According to Matt Sisk he feels that their has been more positives then negatives in the first half of this season.
