WINNER — Spearfish Post 164’s American legion baseball team is still in the hunt for the Region 7B title after the first day of action in Winner. 

In the first game Post 164 lost to Winner 6-3. 

“We played pretty decent,” said Zane Roduner, Post 164’s head coach. “There were just a couple of plays that came back and hurt us a little bit. There were a couple of opportunities that we had potentially to stop them from scoring, and we allowed them to capitalize. That game could have easily been 3-2 in our favor.” 

In the elimination game Thursday, Post 164 kept their region title hopes alive defeating Stanley County 11-2. 

“In that second game our pitching was just amazing. Drew Gusso  started and pitched the first three innings and threw around 40 pitches. We then brought in Kaidon Feyereisen and he pitched the next two innings. Then Dillon Craig came in for one inning, and then Connor Glassford finished it out. We were very aggressive in the zone and we pounded it in the zone. I think  we had only three walks the whole game,” Roduner said.

Post 164 hosts the loser of Winner/Martin in another elimination game today at 4:30 p.m.
