Sullivan Shuts Out Shelby Legion At Paris

Sullivan Legion (not that Sullivan) shut out Shelby Legion and eliminated them from the Paris (not that Paris)Tourney on Saturday, 4-0.

Shelby usually plays Sullivan, Illinois in sports. But on Saturday, Shelby Legion met Sullivan, Indiana. The game was closer than the score, but Shelby (6-15) lost again.

Sullivan drew first blood in the 1st, 1-0, then four scoreless innings kept it a 1-run game. Sullivan had a 3-run rally in the 6th. With no traction on the Shelby side, that was enough to secure the Sullivan win.

Shelby out-hit Sullivan 5 to 4. Sullivan booted the ball three times and Shelby zero. Sullivan walked two and Shelby just three. Sullivan was better at getting runs across. Sullivan had just two left on base and Shelby had five.

Ben Helton pitched good enough to win, but didn't get any run support. Helton went 5.3 innings for Shelby, giving up four runs on four hits and two walks, while striking out four. Dylan Ohnesorge came in to finish the 3-run Sullivan 6th. He allowed no runs on no hits and one walk, while striking out one in 1.6 innings.

Sullivan's winner, Braxton Yeryar, went all seven innings for the win, giving up five hits and two walks, striking out five.

Three different Shelby batters scattered their five hits. Hayden Cole went 2-for-3, Mark Jones was 2-for-2, and Zach Monroe was 1-for-2. Shelby only drew two walks, one from Christian Vonderheide and one from Luke McConnell.

Shelby Legion (6-15) was eliminated from the tourney. They will play a doubleheader on Tuesday on the road against Effingham at Paul Smith Field, beginning at 6 p.m.
