Post 7 downs Charleston Jr. Legion team in regular-season finale, 10-0

TENNERTON – Buckhannon Post 7 stole 12 bases and turned three double plays in just five innings of work as they won their regular-season finale over the Charleston Post 65 Junior Legion team by a 10-0 score Sunday afternoon at William E. Phillips Memorial Field.

The contest was called after five innings on the 10-run mercy rule and the victory ended a three-game slide for Post 7.

Buckhannon tallied three runs in the bottom of the first with the benefit of just one hit — a one-run single by Eli Bryant — to go along with two walks, five stolen bases, a wild pitch and a passed ball.

Post 7 tacked on three more runs in the bottom of the second inning again with just one hit, a one-run single by Landon Marple. Gage Parsons scored on a wild pitch and Wyatt Mason scored on a fielder’s choice hit by Bryant taking a 6-0 lead.

In the bottom of the third inning, Ryan Snyder and Ian Donnen both scored up passed balls by the catcher taking their lead to 8-0.

Buckhannon added two more runs in the bottom of the fourth when Ryder Aman singled and later scored on a wild pitch, and Marple drew a walk and scored on a single by Zach Calef-Boring.

Tucker Burr got the start for Post 7 and picked up the winning going two innings and allowing just two hits while striking out two.

Calef-Boring tossed two scoreless innings while Snyder pitched a scoreless fifth inning for Post 7.

Buckhannon managed five hits in the win with Aman, Bryant, Marple, Calef-Boring and Snyder each getting one.

The day before, Post 7 hosted Potomac Valley Post 64 and dropped a 5-2 decision.

Buckhannon Post 7 ended their regular season with an 11-16 record.

“It was important for us to be dominant today against the Charleston Junior Legion team,” remarked Buckhannon Post 7 general manager Kevin Boring. “The win broke a three-game losing streak for us, and it gives us some confidence. In that three-game slide, we played pretty well but just couldn’t get the win having one bad inning here or a couple of bad situations there. This win helps set the stage for the upcoming Area V Tournament. Everyone that will pitch in the tournament was able to get some work this week and weekend so we will have a lot of options on who we want to put on the mound.”

Buckhannon will now enter the two-team Area V Tournament with Elkins Post 29 on Tuesday.

Buckhannon will visit Elkins Tuesday for game one starting at 7 p.m. and will then host Elkins Wednesday for game two at 7 p.m.

Game three, if needed in the best of three series, will be played at Elkins on Thursday at 7 p.m.
