Cherryville Post 100 Loses Semi-Final Game

Wayne Howard

This time, it was the opponents' turn. Cherryville Post 100 had used big inning rallies to win on Thursday and Friday, but Saturday night, it was Wilmington Post 10 that scored eight runs in the fourth inning to take a 10-4 lead and the Cherryville team couldn't overcome the deficit. Post 10 ended up with a 17-10 win that puts them in the state championship game of American Legion Baseball Sunday afternoon at 3:00 against Fuquay Varina, winners of the first semi-final game Saturday 12-5 over Rowan County.

Cherryville's loss was largely due to leaving runners on base. Post 100 had 14 hits but left 13 runners stranded. Wilmington pounced on starting pitcher Zane Brockman in that 4th inning to turn a 4-2 deficit into a six-run advantage. Cherryville scored four in the bottom of the fourth to cut the lead to 10-6. Post 10 added a run in the fifth; then back-to-back home runs in the top of the sixth made it 13-6 and a sacrifice fly made it 14-6. Post 100 cut the lead to 15-10, but could get no closer. A two-run homer in the top of the 7th accounted for the final score 17-10.

Post 100 finishes the season 22-6. Before Saturday's loss, they had won 13 in a row.
