AMERICAN LEGION: Wilder Sr. gets great pitching in pair of wins

MOUNT VERNON — Wilder Sr. won its opening two games at the Nate Steffens Baseball Tournament in Mount Vernon behind outstanding pitching in both games.

At the plate, Landon Seibel hit a home run. He went 2-for-4 with two runs scored and two RBIs. Jacob Felton returned to the lineup with his hot bat, going 3-for-4 with two doubles, two runs scored and an RBI.

Trey Baysinger was 3-for-4 with a double, a run scored and two RBIs, while Wyatt Hall was 2-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI.

In Friday’s game, Watkins went the entire way, allow two hits and two walks. He struck out three. The Laces’ lone run was unearned.

At the plate, Hall had a big game, going 3-for-3 with a double, a run scored and two RBIs. Baysinger also went 3-for-3 with a run scored and three RBIs. Ty Bradow was 2-for-3 with two RBIs, while Felton and Olson each had a hit and two runs scored.
