Post 14 splits Reps
Jamestown American Legion Post 14 split a pair of Class A West Division baseball games with the Bismarck Representatives in Bismarck on Monday, June 24.
A 95-pitch complete game on the mound turned in by Jamestown's Aaron Kleven helped Post 14 turn away the Reps 7-4 in game 1 at Haaland Field. Kleven allowed just two earned runs and struck out five batters.
Post 14's Max Anderson batted 2-for-4 with an RBI double in the second inning. Jamestown's Conner Hoyt (single), Jeremy Williams (sacrifice fly), Tommy Falk (double) and Jacoby Nold (fielder's choice) all drove in runs during a five-run fourth that helped Post 14 claw back from a 4-2 deficit.
Errors -- nine recorded by Jamestown -- stung Post 14 in game 2, which was won 10-9 by the Reps (10-10, 3-3 West Division).
Post 14 fell behind 4-2 in the second inning after committing four defensive miscues but bounced back to lead 5-4 with a three-run third. The Reps' Parker DeCoteau balked with the bases loaded to start the rally, Max Anderson singled and an Isaac Mimong sac fly plated the other two runs.
Three more errors in the fourth, however, sank any shot of a Post 14 sweep as the Reps pushed five runs across the plate. Falk cracked a two-run double in the sixth to get Jamestown to within a run at 10-9.
Falk finished the nightcap 2-for-4 with a pair of RBIs. Mimong produced a pair of doubles and two RBIs.
Post 14 (6-6, 5-1 West Division) hosts Dickinson on Friday at Jack Brown Stadium beginning at 5:30 p.m.
