Post 8 Falls to Excelsior at Home

Pierre Post 8 fell at home to Excelsior on Tuesday by a final of 9-5 in a single game.

The Eights jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second behind a Matthew Hanson two RBI single but Excelsior would answer with a two run third and fourth inning to take a 4-2 lead. In the top of the fifth, Post 8 committed two errors and Excelsior took advantage scoring five runs to balloon the lead to seven at 9-2. The Eights picked up three runs in the bottom of the seventh in part thanks to two errors and an RBI single from Andy Gordon. Pierre used Elliot Leif, Jack Van Camp and Jayden Wiebe on the mound trying to keep pitch counts low for games on Wednesday and the weekend.

Assistant Coach, Nathan Naasz says it was an up and down day at the plate for the Eights…

Naasz says using the three guys over the game was beneficial as the season goes on…

And Naasz says it’s the little things to get the job done against Huron.

First pitch of the doubleheader against Huron will be at 5:00 with pregame coverage starting at 4:30 on KCCR, and on YouTube at KCCR Sports with Jon Winkler and Greg Dean on the call.
