Post 159 now 7-3 after beating Post 3

ST. CLAIRSVILLE – Post 159 ran its American Legion baseball record to 7-3 Tuesday night with a 5-2 decision over visiting Moundsville at Memorial Park.

Parker Dyson and Lucas Lloyd teamed on a six-hitter, as Dyson fanned five and walked half-a-dozen in four-plus innings of work. Lloyd struck out two and allowed just a hit in earning the victory. He also induced an inning-ending double play in the fifth inning with the bases loaded.

Dillon Curtin paced St. Clairsville’s nine-hit attack with a trio of singles that produced a run. Hunter Westlake and Michael Jacob evenly divided four singles, with Jacob driving in a run. Cody Goletz had a two-run single and Colt Charlton singled in another run.

Post 159 travels to Cadiz Thursday to meet Post 33.
