Greencastle American Legion Post 373 had three wins last week in Franklin County League baseball play last week.

Two of the victories came over league-leading Chambersburg Post 46. Greencastle broke Chambersburg’s six-game win streak with a 7-5 verdict and followed with an 11-1 win on Post 46’s Henninger Field.

On Whitey Barkdoll Field Tuesday Dylan Schaeffer went the distance, scattering seven hits and fanning seven in the effort. Eric Schanzenbacher delivered with the bat with a two-run homer. Josh Short contributed with two RBI-doubles. Andrew Zeger went 2-for-3.

In Chambersburg, Post 373 unleashed a 10-hit attack and were backed by the complete-game pitching of Cory Devos. Devos struck out three and allowed just four hits. Meanwhile his teammates battered the ball. Zeger was 4-for-5 with a triple. Cody Ezolt, Short and Patrick Hudson each drove in two runs. Jared Grove added a triple.

Greencastle edged St. Thomas Post 612 by a 4-3 tally on the home turf as Ezolt delivered a single to score the winning run. Schaeffer notched the win in relief with a hitless seventh. Short contributed with a two-run triple and Schanzenbacher homered.
