Salem Jr Legion Looks To Advance Today In Mt Vernon
Salem opened yesterday with a 9-2 win over Breese Red behind a solid outing from Dalton Courtright. Salem led 3-2 midway through the game but exploded for 4 runs in the 5th and another 2 in the sixth to pull away for the win. Max Phillips had 2 hits and 3 RBI for Salem and also worked a 1-2-3 seventh inning.
Salem then took on Carlyle and behind another solid start, this time from Sedrick Hill, Salem pulled away for a 7-2 win. Trevor Banning threw the 7th inning. The win put's Salem in a position to send their ace Riley Martin to the hill today in a rematch with Mt Vernon, a team Salem fell 3-1 to in the 2nd game of the tournament. Game time tonight is at 5pm.
