Post 218 Goes 2-1 in Washington Invitational Tournament

Washington Post 218 advanced to the championship game of the Washington Invitational Tournament Sunday, but fell 4-1 to the West Jaguars in the title game at Ronsick Field. Playing three games in one day due to a rainout Saturday, Washington began the day with a 1-0 victory over Creve Coeur thanks to an RBI from Nathan Hillermann and a complete game from Aaron Meyer. Washington followed that victory with a 6-0 win over Jackson with Spencer Juergens tossing a complete game shutout for Post 218, extending his scoreless innings streak to 28.

In the championship game against West, Washington allowed three runs in the third inning and one in the fourth. Austin Finder doubled in the sixth to score Seth Bollmann, but Washington was unable to score for the remainder of the game. Now 13-7 on the year, Washington will swing back into action Tuesday night with a home game against Sullivan before going on the road for a game at St. Peters Wednesday night at the Rec Plex. Wednesday's game will be broadcast live on KLPW-AM 1220 at 8:30.
