CHARLESTON — The lack of timely hitting spelled doom for the Paris Post 211 Junior Legion team against Charleston Post 90 Sunday, June 24. Post 211 dropped the opener 2-0 and fell in the nightcap 9-1.
Paris had numerous opportunities in game one after falling behind 2-0 in the second inning. In the third, fourth and fifth innings, Post 211 left a base runner on third base with two outs.
Mitchell Worrell, JT Johnson and Reese Wagoner led Paris in hitting as each player recorded a hit.
In game two, Post 211
gave up seven runs in the bottom half of the first inning and never recovered. Bryan Kohlmeyer led the way for Paris, as he was a perfect three-for-three at the plate with singles. Worrell had a double and a single, and Eric Speicher and Layne Gill each added a base hit.
Paris hosts Toledo for a doubleheader 1 p.m. Sunday, July 1, at Laker Stadium.
