AMERICAN LEGION BASEBALL: Holzman Tosses Complete Game Three-Hitter for Post 206

COTUIT – Barnstable Post 206 righty Eric Holzman kept his unbeaten record this season (3-0) with a complete game three-hit shutout last night at Elizabeth Lowell Park, and defeated the visiting Rockland Post 147 team, 6-0.

Post 206 climbed into second place in the East Division with the win, one game behind Sandwich Post 188. Post 188 lost to Hingham Post 120 on Tuesday night, 7-2. Sandwich Post 188’s game against Marshfield Post 88 last night was postponed due to rain.

Barnstable leadoff man Drew Tardif (Massachusetts Maritime Academy) started off the first inning with a single, stole second and third base and then came home on a Mike Knell basehit for a 1-0 lead. Knell’s hit was followed with a Drew Gallant basehit and then Knell came home on a Chris Weber Texas Leaguer into shallow right for a 2-0 lead. Gallant came home on a Conor Walsh RBI-double.

Weber and Walsh each finished with a pair of RBI on the night. Weber went 1-1 with an RBI-single and sacrifice fly and Walsh hit a pair of RBI-doubles.

Tardif finished 2-4 with two stolen bases, Gallant was 1-2, Jackson Badot was 1-1 with a pinch-hit double and Dan Crossen went 2-3 with an RBI. Crossen also turned in a superlative defensive effort at the hot corner as did Weber at first base.

Barnstable Post 206 takes on Hawkeye Athletic Club (East Bridgewater) tonight at Lowell Park at 5:45 pm.
