Lebanon Juniors Rout New London

New London — Riding a six-run first innings behind the complete-game pitching of Cam Broughton, Lebanon Post 22’s junior team rolled to a 13-1 American Legion baseball win over New London Post 40 in a mercy-ruled contest yesterday at Colby-Sawyer College.

Tanner Simms, Ben Robinson and Noah Mayes all scored twice for Lebanon in a game stopped after five innings. Simms singled twice and doubles, Robinson walked three times and Mayes singles and drew two free passes.

Broughton did his part on the mound, allowing eight hits but just the one run with two strikeouts and two walks. Lebanon batters delivered 10 hits in support.

The juniors host Keene and Hartford for non-league games tomorrow and Wednesday, returning to league action with a doubleheader at Meredith Post 33 on Saturday.

Manchester 7, Lebanon 4

Lebanon — A four-run second inning wasn’t enough for Lebanon’s senior unit, which surrendered four runs in the seventh in a loss to Post 79 at Lebanon High School.

Down 1-0, Post 22 (0-5) used a pair of Manchester errors to get its only lead of teh game. Cam Blewitt reached on a Post 79 miscue, scoring on a Joe Cravero double. Walks to Dalton Campbell and Nick Bailey loaded the bases for Cyrus Rothwell-Ferraris, who drove in two with a single. A hit batsman and a bases-loaded walk gifted Lebanon its fourth run.

But it was all visitors after that. Manchester used three hits and two walks against Blewitt to score twice in the third, then rode two Lebanon errors to score four unearned runs off reliever Josh Weiss in the seventh.

Jordy Levin threw 21∕3 innings of scoreless relief to give Lebanon a late chance. Cravero accounted for three of Post 22’s five hits, including two doubles.

Post 22 visits Goffstown on Wednesday.

Post 13 Sweeps South Royalton

South Royalton — Bennington Post 13 swept a Vermont Legion doubleheader from South Royalton 51 yesterday by scores of 17-0 and 17-7.

Post 51 (1-3) managed just Leif Johnson hit in the five-inning opener, but found itself in position to win the nightcap with a 7-5 lead in the sixth. That’s when Bennington took advantage of seven hits, four walks and three hit batters to pull away late. Jacob Sprague had two hits in the second game and joined Nathan Moore, Tanner Pratt and Leland Goodenough in the RBI department.
