Washington Legion Baseball Post 218 AAA drops tough one to Elsberry, 2-1

The Washington/Eureka game has been cancelled

Elsberry posts a walkoff win and Washington dropped a heartbreaker 2-1 Saturday at Ronsick. With the score tied at one in the ninth inning, Washington committed an error allowing the winning run to score. Seth Bollmann was hot from the plate for Washington Legion Baseball Post 218 AAA. Seth went 1-4 and scored one run. He singled in the sixth inning. Mitch Hammack was a workhorse on the rubber. He allowed one earned run, five hits and one walk while striking out five over seven innings of work. Aaron Meyer ended up on the wrong side of the pitching decision, charged with the loss. He lasted just 1 1/3 innings, walked one, struck out none, and allowed one run. The sixth inning saw Washington Legion score its only run on the day on a groundout by Sam Katzung. Elsberry tied the game in the eighth on an RBI single by Leake that scored Dietrich. Washington drops to 16-8 overall and 8-4 in district action.

Washington is back in action Sunday evening with a home game against Eureka. 6:00 game time at Ronsick Field. It will be broadcast live on KLPW AM 1220.
