Post 140 wins big over Springfield

Greenville American Legion Post 140 rides the arm of Blumenstock for lopsided win over Springfield

SPRINGFIELD – Greenville Post 140 earned a convincing 9-1 win over Springfield behind the 2-hit pitching of Bryce Blumenstock in second round tournament action at Springfield’s Carleton Davidson Stadium.

“Bryce Blumenstock came out against a team that got them during the season and threw a 2-hitter,” said Greenville American Legion coach, Chad Henry. “He did well to get them to go after his pitches, not the ones they wanted.”

“Aiden Psczulkoski brought him along well, mixing pitches and giving him the confidence to bury his off-speed,” Henry said of Post 140’s catcher.

Greenville took advantage of a RBI double off the bat of Warren Hartzell to take a 1-0 lead after one inning of play.

Post 140 added 3-runs in the bottom of the second and fourth innings to extend its lead to 7-1 and plated a run in both the fifth and sixth innings to earn the win.

Blumenstock went the distance to earn the win allowing one run on two hits, striking out two and walking one.

Seth Hoover went 2-4 including a double with a RBI and a run and Hunter Gray was 2-4 with a run. Wyatt House, Colton Francis, Logan Todd and Ricky Heidrich each accounted for a hit.

“About everyone contributed on offense and made our lineup really deep,” noted Coach Henry. “Great first day here at Carleton Davidson Stadium.”

Greenville banged out nine hits while playing error free ball in the field. Springfield was good for two hits and three errors.
