Blair tops Post 135
After the top of the first inning, Blair’s game plan was laid out for everyone at Old Legion Field to see: get runners on base, use the team’s speed and capable coaching to steal second and move into scoring position, and then get base hits to knock them home.
Collin Fantaskey hit a double for the game’s first RBI. On defense, Blair’s pitcher John White was able to get two batters out on pop flies, and then ended the first inning with a strikeout. Post 135 was never able to overcome that deficit, even with a late game run, as the game ended 7-4 in favor of Blair.
White stepped up to the plate in the second inning and hit another double for Blair, but they were unable to score with bases loaded and two outs. Post 135’s pitcher, James Frazier got out of the inning on a ground ball in the in field and a short throw to second for the final out.
Caleb Dextor came through for Post 135 in the second, hitting a double and the subsequent RBI pulled the game within one run. Blair scored two more runs in the fourth, both on critical errors. The largest lead for Blair would come in the fifth inning, up 7-2.
Post 135 would mount a small comeback, scoring two more runs, and went into the final inning down by 7-4. They held Blair scoreless in the seventh, and needed three runs in the bottom of the inning, but Blair would end the game with a Post 135 runner on third and a double play from second to first.
Prior to the 7-4 win, Blair finished off a 7-6 victory in the completion of a suspended game from June 12.
