Legion baseball opens with two wins

SoVaNow.com / June 19, 2017
A promising summer campaign for Junior American Legion baseball started last week.

Post 8 posted has cranked up a 2-0 start with a quality ballclub, featuring a number of the younger players who helped lead the Comet baseball team to a state 5A runner-up finish.

Post 8 got into a slugfest with South Hill, prevailing 13-9.

South Hill delivered early offense, scoring three times on two hits in the first and six more runs on five safeties in the third. Eventually, the eastern Mecklenburg County players had 12 hits.

Post 8 produced steady offense.

The locals collected nine hits, including a pair of doubles and a triple. Drew Harlow, who hit a two-bagger, finished three-for-three with a pair of runs scored.

Blake Duffer, batting in the nine hole, went two-for-three with a double and a triple. He scored two runs.

Dylan Clark walked four times and scored three runs.

Moore got the win with a scoreless inning. He fanned one.

In the season opener Tuesday, Post 8 defeated Roanoke Post 3, 7-3 on the road.

The locals had nine hits, sparked by four two-hit performances from Shaun Perkins, Harlow, Tyler Mabe and Moore.

Tuesday’s game has been designated Legion night, for home action. Any Legion veteran with a membership card is admitted free.
