The Kokomo Post 6 American Legion baseball squad shut out Greentown Post 317 10-0 in four innings Saturday to put itself in the today’s championship game of the Post 6 Summer Classic at CFD Investments Stadium in Highland Park.
Damon Prater threw the first three innings for the win. He had six strikeouts and didn’t give up a hit. Drew Bellus threw bottom of the fourth to finish off the win. He allowed a double to Greentown’s Austin Buck — Post 317’s only hit — but no damage on the scoreboard.
The Sixers blew the game open with a six-run third. Austin Edwards keyed the outburst with a bases-loaded triple in that frame. Tyler Goudy also knocked in three runs in the game, two on RBI singles and one on a sacrifice fly.
“We’re just really playing well,” Kokomo coach Don Andrews said. “Our defense is outstanding. Through two games in the tournament we still haven’t allowed a run yet.
“All we have to do is score a run here and there and win ballgames. Pitchers have done a great job, defense has just been outstanding..”
Post 6 (6-6) faces Madison Post 9 today at 2 p.m. for the championship of the five-team tourney.
Derek Durkes took the loss for Greentown.
