Post 18 mounts comeback, outlasts Post 320


RAPID CITY -- Mitchell Post 18 opened the Rapid City Veterans Classic with an extra-inning, come-from-behind victory over Rapid City Post 320 on Thursday night.

Riley McGinnis doubled in the go-ahead run in the ninth inning, followed by Brady Brosz singling home an insurance run in an 8-6 win.

Post 18 fell behind 4-2 in the fourth inning, and it took until the seventh inning for it to erase the deficit. With one out, Peyton Nash doubled, as Jonah Schmidt doubled him home a couple of batters later after Koby Larson was hit by a pitch. Both Larson and Schmidt scored on Austin Kerr’s sacrifice fly, while Joe VanOverschelde hit an RBI double to cap the four-run frame.

Rapid City tied the game to force extra innings, but Larson proceeded to hold Post 320 to one hit over two scoreless frames. Post 18 broke through in the ninth inning.

Larson’s performance followed Hunter Stahle giving up six earned runs on 11 hits and striking out four in a seven-inning start.


Post 18’s offense racked up 14 hits, including six doubles. Schmidt had two doubles during his three-hit, two-RBI day. McGinnis and Brosz both had three hits, as well. Nash and Kerr, who drove in three runs, both had two hits.

Garrett Grismer suffered the loss, as he allowed five earned runs in 2.1 relief innings. Wyatt Hunt tripled during a 3-for-5 game, while Tate Walker and Lane Darrow each had two hits. Walker and Logan Ammerman each had a double.

Mitchell Post 18 (17-15) plays Sioux Falls East and Miles City (Mont.) today in the Rapid City Veterans Classic.
