YANKTON -- The final out doomed Mitchell Post 18 on Tuesday.

Yankton Post 12 scored six runs with two outs in a 9-3 win over Mitchell in an American Legion baseball game at Riverside Field at Bob Tereshinski Stadium.

The loss, which was its fifth in the past six contests, drops Mitchell to 13-21 overall.

On Tuesday, Mitchell’s inability to get out of innings contributed to its loss. Yankton’s Drew Ryken took a shutout in the seventh inning as Mitchell managed six hits.

In the second inning, Yankton’s Cody Oswald hit a two-run homer with two outs. In the third inning, Yankton tacked on two more runs, including a Connor Teichroew RBI single with two outs.


In the fourth inning, Yankton added to its lead with RBI singles from Dylan Prouty, Carson Haak and Teichroew, all with two outs.

Yankton built a 9-0 lead in the fifth inning. Post 12 could have ended the contest due to the 10-run rule, but Parker Bollinger was able to get out of the inning.

Mitchell was held scoreless until the seventh inning. Mitchell’s Landon Waddell hit an RBI single to end the shutout, scoring Brock Sparks after his lead-off double.

Jonah Schmidt hit an RBI sacrifice fly and Ryan McGinnis scored on a passed ball for the final two runs. Mitchell’s Mason Geraets flew out to end the game.

Schmidt, Soulek, Sparks, Waddell, Carson Fahey and Jacob Schumacher each had a hit for Mitchell.

Post 18 starter Ty Neugebauer lasted three innings. He allowed seven hits, four earned runs and struck out three batters. Joe VanOverschelde and Bollinger combined for three relief innings. VanOverschelde gave up four earned runs on three hits in one inning, while Bollinger allowed one hit and one earned run in one relief inning.
