WINTERVILLE — It took until the final hour on June 17 for the Pitt County Post 39 American Legion baseball team to be handed its first loss of the season.

It happened late Sunday night when visiting Wallace Post 156 scored an 8-5 win against Pitt County in the final game of the Area 1 versus Area 2 weekend challenge held at Pitt Community College. Post 39 had a 15-0 record after a thrilling win Saturday night against Wilmington.

Sunday’s finale began nearly two hours after its scheduled 7 p.m. first pitch because of a lightning delay earlier in the day.

Wallace took a 2-1 lead during the third inning and used a five-run rally in the bottom of the fifth for a 7-1 advantage. All of the runs in the fifth came with two outs, highlighted by Te Dixon’s RBI double and Greer Faircloth hitting a three-run home run to left field.

Post 39 rallied in the sixth for four runs to cut the deficit to 7-5. Anthony Saieed hit a two-run single during the frame, which began with five straight walks.

Pitt left at least one runner on base in each inning, including the bases loaded in the third and fourth.

It filled the bags with no outs in the third on a walk and two hit batsmen, but a fly out and two grounders kept it a 1-1 game. Wallace scored in the bottom-half of the third when Jackson Murray smacked a two-out triple and Zack Parker followed with an RBI single for a 2-1 lead.

The Post 39 fourth featured a leadoff single by Josh McCarter and Pitt had the bases loaded with one out, but again could not push across a run. Relief pitcher Cody Whaley induced consecutive fly outs to keep Post 156 up 2-1.

Pitt County was the first to score, plating a run in the top of the first. Drew Nichols worked his first of three walks on the night, and Ty’Shawn Barrett drove him in from second base with a two-out, run-scoring single.

On Saturday night it was a few big swings that helped Pitt score a comeback win against Wilmington. The visitors were clinging to a 5-4 lead in the sixth inning when Post 39 exploded for six runs behind McCarter’s grand slam and a two-run homer by Robby Wacker.

Nichols then took the pitcher’s mound and completed his 1 1/​3 scoreless innings and Post 39’s 10-5 victory. Scott Mayo went 3 1/​3 frames earlier in the game and struck out five batters while yielding an unearned run.
