Washington Post 218 kicked off the season with an 8-3 win over Warrenton Post 122 at Ronsick Field last night. Seth Bollmann, Ross Seitter, Noah Borgerding and John Himmelberg had two hits apiece and Mitch Hammack pitched six innings for the win. He gave up two runs on four hits with eight strike outs, two walks and one hit batter. Both teams struggled in the field at times with Warrenton committing seven errors and Washington four.

Post 218 will be having a bike show in conjunction with Tykes night. All motorcycles should be in by 6:15. Judging will be done by both teams playing that night with awards going to the top four spots. Bike Show participants will be invited onto the field for the national anthem. Winning presentations will be done between the 2nd and 3rd inning after 7:30. Bikes will be staged in the parking lot behind the City Pool on the corners of High Street and Circle Drive. There is no cost to participate. Kids 12-and-under will receive free ice cream and will also be allowed to run the bases.
