Greenville American Legion Post 140 downs Miami Valley Prospects in Springfield tournament action

SPRINGFIELD – Greenville American Legion Post 140 defeated Miami Valley Prospects 6-2 in first round tournament play at Springfield.

The Prospects took an early 1-0 lead after one inning of play with Post 140 plating 2-runs to lead 2-1 through three innings.

Greenville tacked on two runs in the top of the fourth and added single runs in the fifth and sixth innings to lead 6-1 heading to the final inning. The Prospects plated a run in the bottom of the seventh for a final 6-2 score with Greenville advancing.

Steven Jones earned the win for Greenville going five innings, allowing two hits and one run while striking out 10 and walking one. Hunter Reagan threw two innings in relief recording the last six outs for the save allowing one run on three hits, a walk and three strikeouts.

“The bottom of our lineup really picked us up and Steven threw like we knew he could against his old team,” said Greenville coach, Chad Henry. “He struggled with location at the beginning of games, but he got a good pregame in today and came out and filled the zone well.”

“His slider was the best it’s been this summer,” Henry added. “It created a lot of swing and misses.”

Rob Ellis was 2-3 including a double with 2-RBIs and a run; Hunter Gray went 2-3 with 2-walks and a run and Ricky Heidrich was 2-3 with a walk and 2-runs scored. Aiden Psczulkoski went 1-4 to round out Post 140 hitting.

Greenville played error free ball while Miami Valley was tagged with four errors.
