Shelby Legion pummels Paris

Shelby Sr. Legion began the divisional playoffs at Mattoon, pounding Paris in eight innings, 12-2.

Shelby Legion is made up of players from the Windsor-Stew-Stras co-op, Shelbyville and Neoga. Windsor-StewStras and Shelbyville had banner years. But was the legion season started, the high school baseball-weary legion players took awhile to gel. No problem gelling on Sunday as the playoffs began.

Shelby had a 4-run rally out of the gate, Paris got on the board in the 4th, but Shelby answered with another 4-run rally in the 4th and a 3-run burst in the 5th to go up 11-2.

Paris was shut down over the next four innings and Shelby finally got the score that engaged the 10-run rule in the bottom of the 8th and walked off the field with the win.

Shelby out-hit Paris 12 to 2, Paris out-booted Shelby 4 to 1, Shelby drew 5 walks to just two for Paris and only six Shelby batters struck out over eight innings,

Shelby ace Christian Vonderheide limited Paris to just four hits over seven innings, walk no one and struck out nine. He also hit 2-for-4, scoring twice and driving in a run.

Two other Shelby batters had multiple hits. Hayden Cole hits 3-for-5 with two runs, a walk-off double and three RBIs. Michael Baker was 3-for-3, with a run and two RBIs.

Vonderheide KO’d 2-of-3 Paris batters in the 1st, then Shelby took advantage of Paris. Vonderheide led off reaching base and Jake Keown was hit by a pitch.

With one out, Luke Hatfield reached on an error. With two outs and the bases loaded, Cole laced a 2-run single. With two on and two out, Baker hit a 2-run single, 4-0 Shelby.

Vonderheide gave up a hit, but also threw another K, facing just four batters in the 2nd. Keown reached on an error in the 2nd, but only four Shelby batters came to the plate. Vonderheide put Paris down in order in the 3rd with another strikeout. Shelby went in order.
