Hurst throws complete-game shutout as Post 7 downs Moundsville, 5-0

TENNERTON – Brady Hurst pitched a complete-game shutout for Buckhannon Post 7 in a 5-0 victory over Moundsville Post 3 Thursday evening at William E. Phillips Memorial Field.

Hurst allowed only three hits, walked just one batter and fanned seven in the victory.

“I think the biggest thing to take away from Brady’s performance was his efficiency,” stated Buckhannon Post 7 manager Kevin Boring. “We have talked to our starting pitchers about staying out of three ball counts. I think he only had two or three the entire game and only walked one batter. He was very efficient and is really helping the team on the mound.”

Buckhannon struck first in the bottom of the third when Drayden Rice drew a walk, went to second on a wild pitch, moved on third on a fielder’s choice by Eli Bryant and scored on a Moundsville error.

Post 7 made it 2-0 in the bottom of the fourth when Isaac Lane led off the frame with a walk, moved all the way to third on a single by Ryan Snyder and scored on an errant pick-off throw at first base.

Post 7 iced the game in the bottom of the sixth inning with three runs with the benefit of only one hit.

They capitalized on four walks and a single by Zach Calef-Boring.

Buckhannon managed just four hits while taking advantage of nine Moundsville walks.

Picking up the four hits for Post 7 were Calef-Boring with two and Snyder and Ian Donnen each with one.

A day earlier in Parkersburg, they dropped an 11-2 decision to Parkersburg.

This past weekend, Post 7 dropped a pair of home games to Charleston Post 56 by 3-1 and 6-5 scores on Saturday but came back to sweep Wellsburg Sunday on the road in a twin bill by 5-4 and 12-2 scores.

Buckhannon now stands at 4-3 on the year.

Their scheduled game with Garrett (Md.) on Friday was canceled. They will return to action Saturday with a doubleheader in Wheeling, playing Elkins first at 2:30 p.m. and then Wheeling at 5 p.m.

Buckhannon will also play Elkins and Wheeling in Wheeling on Sunday taking on Elkins at 12:30 p.m. and Wheeling at 3 p.m.

Thursday’s game was the last home game for Post 7 for nearly two weeks as they embark on an eight-game road swing including this weekend at Wheeling and a four-game stretch in the Palmetto (S.C.) Invitational next weekend from June 17-19.

“We are hoping for a good weekend in Wheeling and a nice showing in South Carolina,” concluded Boring.
