Senior Legion Baseball-Washington Falls to West

Washington grabbed a 3-0 lead through four innings of baseball at Westhoff Park Monday night, but the West Jaguars came back with four unearned runs, two in the fifth and two more in sixth and Ryan Franklin made it stand with his second complete game against Washington this season. Franklin finished with seven strike outs and no walks as West improved to 23-5 overall and 9-2 in league action. Noah Borgerding and Aaron Meyer had two hits apiece as Washington dropped to 16-9 and 8-5. Spencer Juergens started but did not figure in the decision. He pitched five innings and gave up two runs in the fifth ending his consecutive scoreless innings streak at 32. Logan Holdermeyer came on in the sixth and was saddled with the loss.

Washington is back in action tonight with a road game against Sullivan. Game time is 7:00. Our next broadcast is Wednesday night when Washington returns to Ronsick Field for a game against St. Peters at 8:30.

What will the future hold for the Class of 2015? Time will tell.

My youngest has now graduated from high school. Back in 1980, I was the youngest of my family who graduated.
