PIERRE, S.D. – Your Pierre Post 8 American Legion Baseball team had a coming out party last night as they swept their first doubleheader of the season and own a 3 game winning streak for the first time this year.  Post 8 downed Sturgis 7-0 and 10-5 at Hyde Stadium.  In the first game, Ryan Goodwin’s 2 run infield single in the first inning would ba all that Pierre needed.  Pierre added a run in the third and 4 in the fourth with the big hit a bases loaded tripled from Carson Eisenbeisz.  Willie Welch and Cody Honeywell combined on a 7 hit shutout.  In the nightcap, Post 8 scored 5 times in the first inning and Mac Mercer’s 3 run triple after a rain delay put the game away.  3 Pierre pitchers held Sturgis in check the rest of the way.  With the wins, Post 8 improves to 6-12 on the season as they travel to Mitchell for a doubleheader with Brandon and Mitchell tomorrow night.
