(Ste. Genevieve) Catch American Legion baseball on J98 Tuesday evening when Festus Post 253 (7-12) travels to Yanks’ Field in Ste. Genevieve to take on Post 150 (13-6). The summer series is tied at one but Festus has the bragging rights after a 6-1 win Friday night at the SIU Showcase in Carbondale. Festus coach Aaron Mayer says his starting pitcher was the driving force behind the win.
Black went the distance in the 5-inning game allowing 5 hits and striking out 4 batters. Mayer says Nate Moore will get the ball Tuesday evening and will look for a different result having thrown against Ste. Gen in the 8-1 loss on June 15th.
Ste. Genevieve ended a four-game skid with a 15-3 win over Charleston on Saturday. Coach Junie Basler says they’ll turn to Dream Teamer Aiden Boyer with the hopes of winning the season series over Festus.
The Fliegs Equipment Pregame Show begins at 6:45 on J98 The Boot with first pitch set for 7 o’clock. You can also stream the game online at MyMoInfo.com.
