Ryan Franklin pitched a complete game with seven strike outs and two walks leading the West Jaguars to a 1-0 win over Washington Post 218 in a pitchers dual at Ronsick Field Friday night. West scored the winning run in the eighth when Danny Biggs led off with a walk, was sacrificed to second, stole third, and came home on a sacrifice fly off the bat of Kyle Case. Washington starter Spencer Juergens pitched seven scoreless innings before being lifted for Nick Thiel who pitched a third of an inning giving up two walks. Thiel suffered the loss. Justin Shuler pitched the final inning and two thirds with three strike outs. Post 218 threatened early putting runners on base in each of the first three innings and had two runners on in the ninth but failed to push anyone across. Ross Seitter, Austin Finder and Noah Borgerding had two hits apiece. Washington drops to 5-2 overall and 3-2 in 9th District action while West improves to 5-1 and 1-1.

August 9, 2014, will forever be marked in the history books as the date Michael Brown was shot by a Ferguson police officer.

It is the aftermath of that event, however, which history will forever remember. The protesters, the looters, the agitators, the Hands Up Don't Shoot movement, the dramatic announcement of the grand jury, the buildings up in flames. In the process, the community and image of Ferguson was destroyed.
