FARMVILLE — Post 39 was defeated by Post 151 of Farmville Thursday, 4-3, marking Post 39’s fourth straight setback while Post 151 ended its season by winning their its two games.

Down 1-0 after a Michael Crumpler home run in the top of the first, Post 151 responded with a two-run home run from Jordan Berry, who also scored Ty Horner. Trent Langley singled home another run to increase the Post 151 lead to 3-1. The hosts added one more in the bottom of the fifth when Horner sent a ball over the fence for a solo shot to make the score 4-1. 

Dakota Delisi pitched five strong innings for Post 151, while Easton Dally also threw five for Post 39 (17-5). 

Drew Nichols and Robbie Wacker led Post 39 in hits with two. Langley led Post 151, also with two. 

Post 39 fought back in the top of the fourth as Anthony Saieed scored on a Drew Nichols single to make the score 4-2

In the top of the seventh, after hitting a single and advancing to third on a single by Wacker, Crumpler scored via Ty’Shawn Barrett being hit by a pitch to reach the final score of 4-3.

“This feels great. Back-to-back games against two great teams, Wilson on Monday night and Post 39 tonight,” Post 151 head coach Josh Boberg said. “This is the effort I’ve been waiting for since the first day at tryouts. These guys gave me the last two games of their season, giving me 110 percent.”

Boberg praised Post 39’s powerful bats, calling the club “one of the best hitting teams ever put together on paper.” He also praised Delisi for his performances throughout the year. 

For Post 39, head coach Ryan Meadows saw the game as a way to bring his team back into the win column in preparation for the team’s final game Monday at Clayton.

“We’re really hoping to springboard from the energy our dugout was giving. We’ve really been dragging lately, physically and mentally,” Meadows said. “I think the dog days of summer are getting to our guys. I think the best thing that can happen is our guys come out and give a lot of energy.”

Despite the loss, Meadows said his players put in a complete team effort. 

After facing Clayton, Post 39 enters the Area 1 playoffs .
