Post 7 takes 5-4 tournament loss

The American Legion Post 7 baseball team took a 5-4 loss to Taylor Baseball during tournament play Thursday, July 9, in Bellevue.

Post 7 led 4-1 before Taylor Baseball engineered a three-run sixth inning followed with a walkoff run in the bottom of the seventh.

Felix Zavisubin threw a complete game but took the loss.

“I thought we controlled the first half of the game and played well,” coach Steve Slesk said in a phone interview. “The margin of error is small against those guys, and we didn’t close the door.”

Ernie Yake went 2 for 4, and Kyler Shemstad was 2 for 3.
