  • Andover had beaten the McPherson American Legion Seniors the previous two times the teams had met.
    Post 24 made sure there wasn’t a repeat performance Tuesday night at Grant Sports Complex, as they exploded for 25 total runs between the two first innings of the doubleheader, crushing Andover 20-6 and 13-1.
    “There wasn’t a ton of difference, as far as players,” McPherson coach Craig Marshall said of the first two times the two teams had met. “We were missing some guys and they were missing some guys. The thing is the way we play. The way we are doing our work, doing our business. We’ve got to take care of our business and not worry about who’s out there on the field. And I think you saw that tonight.”
    Andover got two runs in during the top of the first, but McPherson took advantage of weak Andover pitching in game one, as the first four batters reached off of walks or were hit by pitches. Tanner DeVore busted the game wide open with a line-drive single to center field that scored Ethan Blouin and Aaron Marshall.
    Post 24 would bat a full two rounds in the first inning, highlighted by a Marshall two-RBI triple to right field that pushed the game to 10-2. McPherson (12-15) would score one in the second and five more in the fifth to finish out the run-rule shortened game.
    Game two started out much the same way, with McPherson jumping out to a 11-0 lead after the first inning. Blouin had the highlight of the inning with a three-RBI triple to center field.
    Post 24 added two more runs in the third inning.
    Brodie Burney, who went the complete game in game two for the win, also finished the doubleheader with seven total RBIs. Blouin had five RBIs and seven runs scored.
    “(The) offense was just tremendous,” Craig Marshall said. “I think, hopefully, we’re clicking at the right time.”
    Zach Likely notched the win in game one, giving up six runs off six hits, striking out two and walked two.
    McPherson is back in action tonight, as they host Great Bend, whom they beat June 18 11-1. First pitch at Grant Sports Complex is at 6 p.m.
