Post 12 takes two from ‘A’s’
By Suzanne Werre
Jared Mitzel and Blake Anderson both picked up wins on the hill Monday night as Legion Post 12 baseball won both ends of a double-header against the Mandan A’s, combining for 27 hits in the two games.
Mitzel picked up the 8-6 win, but reliever Hunter Jacobs picked up the save, pitching three innings and not giving up a single earned run.
Caleb Weisgarber was good for a pair of RBIs, while Jacobs was good for a pair of steals. Anderson, Mitzel and Christian Thompson were each good for a pair of hits in the win.
Game two saw Post 12 take a quick 2-0 lead the first inning, and that quick lead was enough to hold off the rallying A’s, as Post 12 held on for the 7-6 win, out-hitting the A’s 14-7.
