Two-run sixth inning is enough as Post 29 downs Post 13


CLARKSBURG, W.Va. – Two American Legion baseball teams squared off at Frank Loria Field on Wednesday night and Elkins Post 29 took down Clarksburg Post 13 after the game was called in the the sixth inning.

South Harrison’s Josh Thomaschek started on the mound for Clarksburg. He finished with three strikeouts on the night. Philip Barbour’s Cody Cooper had two K’s for Elkins.

Clarksburg put its only run on the board in the top of the third as Liberty’s Matt Hutson hit a grounder that scored a run to give Post 13 a 1-0 lead.
