  • The McPherson American Legion Juniors had about a week layoff before traveling to Nickerson and, from the results, the rest did them good.
    Post 24 blasted Nickerson in both games of the doubleheader, winning 15-1 and 23-3.
    McPherson’s Timothy Ruble had a monster game one, hitting 2-for-4, including a double, and knocking in five runs, while scoring one, himself.
    Post 24 jumped out early with a four-run first inning. McPherson then added five more in the third and three in the fifth before the game was called due to the run-rule.
    Nickerson scored their run in the bottom of the first.
    Griffin Myers pitched all five innings for the win in game one, giving up the one unearned run off four hits. He struck out three and walked two.
    Post 24 blew the doors off the barn of game two with two straight four-run innings, but really put the hammer down in fifth, where they erupted for 10 runs.
    Barrett got the offensive barrage rolling in the fifth, as his single to left drove in Jacob Loecker and Adam Bowers. He would then single to right later in the inning to score Kolby Reed and Nelson Steinert.
    Barrett finished game two going 3-for-4 with six RBI’s and scoring four times, himself.
    McPherson scored four in the first, second and third innings, then added one run in  the third inning.
    Nickerson picked up two runs in the first inning and then added one in the third.
    Jeremy Krehbiel had three RBI’s, while Loecker, Steinert and Myers all picked up two.
    McPherson had 15 total hits in game two.
    Loecker was winning pitcher, going 4 1/3 innings and giving up one run off two hits. He struck out five and walked five.
    Krehbiel worked 2/3 at the start of the game before Loecker took over, giving up two earned runs on one hit. He struck out one and walked four.
    The Post 24 juniors are back at home this evening, as they host Junction City for a doubleheader starting at 6 p.m. from Grant Sports Complex.
