Post 60 gets swept
The Valley City Post 60 American Legion baseball struggled offensively Monday and was swept by Kindred.
The team was only able to put together four total hits in the two games despite strong efforts from pitchers Chase Carpenter and Brett Stearns.
Valley City lost the first game 3-0. Kindred scored one run in the second, fourth and fifth innings.
Carpenter threw all six innings with only four hits allowed and eight strikeouts. He also went 1-2 at the plate. Anthony Olstad had Post 60â€™s only other hit.
Valley City Babe Ruth player Jacob Miller showed plenty of tenacity in Mondayâ€™s double header split with Oakes.
As his team played the first game, a 4-2 loss, he donned the catcherâ€™s gear and took his spot behind the plate for all seven innings in 90 degree weather.
He followed it by switching battery positions for game two, where he pitched all four innings and scored two runs in a 5-1 win.
In both instances, coach Lance Lukes was pleased as the team readies for the District 6 tournament later this month in Steele.
