    GREENVILLE – Post 95’s hopes of winning the Greenville College Sr. Legion Tournament were quickly dashed when eventual second-place finisher Florissant (Mo.) won the opening game 10-2.

    But after winning the next two games with strong efforts from the pitcher’s mound, Vandalia was hoping to salvage a 3-1 finish by beating New Baden for a second time this season.

    Post 95, however, had just two hits on offense, and its pitchers struggled to keep New Baden runners off base in an 8-0 loss on Saturday afternoon at Greenville High School.
