Shelby Legion Sweeps Charleston

After dropping their first four games, Shelby Legion got a measure of respect on Saturday, by sweeping Charleston, 9-1 and 16-9.

Shelby lit some fireworks on Saturday. They delivered 11 hits and six of them were extra-base hits. Zach Monroe, Luke McConnell, Tyler Hendryx, Tyler Romack, and Gunner Thies all had doubles.

Thies, 2-for-3, not only doubled, he blasted a solo home run. Romack and McConnell also had multiple hits. Romack was 2-for-3 with two runs and an RBI, while McConnell was 2-for-3 with a run.

Ben Helton evened his record pitching. After losing to Decatur, Helton went the distance and earned the win. He gave up nine hits, three walks and hit two batters, while striking out seven. He was able to hold on for the win, because his fielders only booted the ball once.

Shelby only out-hit Charleston 11 to 9, but Shelby was able to mitigate the damage as Charleston left 11 runners on base. All nine Shelby runs were recorded as RBIs thanks to hitting well with runners on base. Charleston didn’t commit an error, but they did give up four walks and hit one batter.

Shelby lit the fuse in the 2nd, posting a 5-run rally. Shelby made it 6-0 in the 3rd and 8-0 after the 4th. Charleston finally got one of their runners across home in the 5th. Shelby got that run back in the 6th and capped the score, 9-1.
