Shelby Splits With Vandy

After losing to Vandalia Legion at the Greenville Tournament last weekend, 9-1, the Shelby Legion hit the reset button. Shelby earned a split at a doubleheader in Vandalia on Wednesday, winning 5-2, before dropping the nightcap, 11-4.

Shelby County proved they could beat Vandalia in game 1 Wednesday. Key was the appearance of Christian Vonderheide on the mound for the first time this summer. The Stew-Stras ace shut out Vandy for six innings, allowing just three hits and walking two, while ringing up nine batters.

Also key to the win was zero errors committed by Shelby. Vandy had just five base runners over six innings and eight over seven inning. Shelby had 13 base runners, as they slapped seven hits, drew five walks and reached on an error.

Shelby got on the board first with a 3-run rally in the 2nd. They went up 5-0 with a 2-run 4th and held serve until the bottom of the 7th.

Shelby’s team approach helped tally their scores. Eight Shelby players either hit safely or figured in the scoring.

Vonderheide helped himself by leading the hitters. Vonderheide hit 2-for-4 and drove in two runs. Lead-off man Tyler Hendryx (Shelbyville) hit 1-for-4, scored one run and drove in another.
