WATERTOWN – Pierre Post 8 Legion Baseball was swept in a doubleheader Tuesday by Watertown Post 17 12-5 and 3-2.

Watertown had a 3-0 lead after one inning and 5-2 after three in the first game before breaking the game open with five runs in the fourth.  Jett Zabel and George Stalley had RBI doubles for the Eights and Lincoln Kienholz had an RBI single.  Post 8 pitching struggled, allowing nine hits and 10 walks.

Post 8 (5-7) was down 1-0 in the second game before Kienholz drove in both the Eights’ runs with a third-inning single.  However, a bases-loaded walk in the home third put Watertown in front and a passed ball gave the home team the lead in the fourth inning.  Zabel lost despite striking out 10 in three and two-thirds innings.
