Washington Legion Baseball Post 218 AAA continued to pile up the runs on Saturday, scoring six runs in the seventh inning, on the way to a 20-1 landslide win over Pacific at Pacific PYA. Washington scored eight runs in the second inning on a groundout by Spencer Juergens, an error, a two-run single by Noah Borgerding, an RBI single by Hillermann, a two-run single by Aaron Meyer, and an RBI single by Ross Seitter. Justin Schuler boosted his batting average thanks to a perfect 2-2 day at the plate to pace Washington. He singled in the fifth inning and doubled in the seventh inning. Pacific couldn't get anything going as long as Mitch Hammack was pitching. Pacific managed just one hit off Hammack, who allowed no earned runs, walked one and struck out five during his five innings of work. Ray was charged with the loss. He allowed 12 runs in 4 1/3 innings, walked three and struck out six. Washington never surrendered the lead after the first inning, scoring one run on a fielder's choice.
