LAFAYETTE — Highland Post 180 dealt Kokomo Post 6 a 12-7 defeat Saturday in pool play at the Lafayette Post 11 Invitational. Kokomo’s second game against Remington was rained out and postponed to 5 p.m. today. Due to weather issues, there will be no championship game played today. Instead, teams will wrap up pool play today and that will conclude the tournament.
On Saturday, the Sixers got plenty of offense but couldn’t keep Highland in check. Isaac Turner and Logan Barnes each had two singles and a double to lead the Sixer offense. Jesse Broomfield added two singles and Tyler Goudy doubled. Conner Milligan took the loss as Kokomo fell to 10-7, snapping a seven-game winning streak.
“I bragged all season long about our defense, how well it’s played and being as superstitious as baseball coaches are, I should have never said anything because [Saturday] our defense let us down,” Kokomo coach Don Andrews said. “I’ve been proud of the boys all year and I know they’ll bounce back [today] and have a great game.”
