Post 5 earns split in doubleheader
Saturday, July 9, 2011
There are tough ways to lose and there are tough ways to lose.
Friday’s loss to Sedalia by the Jefferson City American Legion Post 5 Aflac Juniors in the first game of a twinbill qualifies as just that.
The Juniors nearly overcame an 8-0 deficit, only to have the tying run thrown out at the plate in the bottom of the seventh inning to end a wild 8-7 loss to Sedalia at the American Legion Post 5 Sports Complex.
“At the last second I tried to hold him up, but at the same time they had to make a play and they threw the ball in and it didn’t bounce,” Post 5 coach Keith Bax said. “Chances are that ball could have hit that lip and gone wild and we are in the ballgame.”
Post 5 (13-3) salvaged the day by coming back to rout Sedalia 13-0 in five innings in the second game of the doubleheader.
