July 14, 2014

Legion Post 60 led Harvey 3-0 through two League innings Friday at Charlie Brown Field until Harvey came alive for an 8-4, eight-hit win, the momentum from which they carried over to take the non-Leaguer, 8-0.

Grafton led Saturday’s home League game 8-0 after five, but Post 60 scored six straight runs in an ill-fated comeback to fall 8-6.
