Post 8 Advances To 2nd Round With Win by Dan Hoblick KCCR Radio

Thursday, August 1, 2013
For the third time this season, the Post 8 baseball team defeated the Aberdeen Smitty's. This time the win came in the first round of the American Legion State A Tournament in Rapid City on Wednesday afternoon. Willie Welch, for the second consecutive week, pitched a complete 9 inning game only giving up 4 earned runs in a 9-7 victory. Much like the game against RC Post 320 last week in the regional tournament, Welch was not coming out of the game for any reason according to Post 8 coach Matt Sisk.

Pierre Post 8 and Aberdeen battled back and forth in the 1st round of the state tournament. Aberdeen took an early lead only to see it wiped away in the bottom of third. After Ryan Goodwin scored off a Gage Curtis single, Blake Dean crushed a three run homer to give Post 8 a 4-2 lead. Dean led the team with three RBI's and Sisk mentioned that it should not be a surprise on how well Blake Dean can hit a baseball.

Both teams traded runs into the later stages of the game. With the game tied at 7 in the bottom of the eighth inning, Post 8 plated two more runs to win the 1st round contest. Post 8 finished their first game of the state tournament with nine runs, nine hits, and committed two errors. Post 8 will now play RC Post 22 in the second round of the state tournament. KCCR will bring you coverage of the second round contest with pregame starting at 8:15PM and first pitch at 8:30PM.
