Post 70 wins both in double header

Russ Jinright is so happy with his team right now that he gave his players on the Fourth of July off.

&#8220We're doing something we've never done before,” said Troy Post 70 head coach about celebrating the holiday.

Troy swept Monday's double header against Enterprise Post 73 to give the local team a 22-6 record. Jinright told the team they could have the rest of the week off for family vacation and to relax.

In Game 1, Troy won 14-0 after a stellar pitching performance by David Fleming. He pitched a complete game, allowing no runs and striking out nine.

&#8220He did real well. He's come around really well lately,” Jinright said.

Parker Sanders went 3 for 3, and seven other players all had one hit in the first game.

In Game 2, Troy won 6-3.

William Teal went the distance against Enterprise. He pitched a complete game, gave up three runs on three hits and struck out seven.

All three runs for Enterprise came in the fourth inning after two walks and two infield singles.

&#8220Infield singles are going to happen. That's baseball,” Jinright said.

Tanner Hensley went 2 for 2, Jonathan Wade went 2 for 4 and Mitch McCloud went 1-1.

There were zero errors by the Troy defense in both games.

&#8220Perfect defense tonight,” Jinright said. &#8220Right now we're playing really well. If we keep playing like that, then we'll do really well (in district).”

Troy Post 70 will play its next game at 5:30 p.m. on Monday at Charles Henderson High School.
