Post Season Schedule & Results


Springfield’s loss last evening to Falls Church Post 130 by a score of 7-6 brought an end to its American Legion Baseball season. Springfield Post 176 scored in the top of the first inning to take an early lead.  Falls Church answered with runs in the third and fourth innings, scored two more in the 5th and one in the 6th for a 5-1 lead. Springfield scored a run in the 7th inning, and both teams scored in the 8th inning to bring the score to 6-3.  In the top of the 9th inning, Falls Church scored a run on a double, followed by a throwing error by the third basemen that lead to an unearned run.  With two outs in the bottom of the 9th, Springfield mounted a comeback scoring 3 runs on three hits and a walk.  And with a runner at second base, Davis McNabb sent a sharply hit ground ball to the second basemen that was well played, fielding the hard hit grounder and throwing to first for the final out of the game, and what turned out to be the final out for Springfield’s season.  Matt Stallings, who will be playing at VCU, had three hits and Jacob Kisner, who will play at Chesapeake College, had 2 hits to lead Post 176.  LHP Brent Nachison took the loss.  Springfield Post 176 finished the season with 14 wins to go with 9 losses.

Wed July 20th:    In another hotly contested game, Springfield Post 176 lost last evening to Vienna Post 180 by a score of 8-7 in 10 innings. Springfield scored in the top of the first inning on a solo home run by Louis Perez.  Vienna tied the score in the first on a lead-off triple followed by a hit.  Springfield and Vienna each scored again in the third before Springfield took the lead 5-2 in the top of the 5th inning.  Vienna bounced back with 4 runs in the bottom of the 5th inning.  Vienna added a run in the 6th inning to lead 7-5.  Springfield scored two runs in the 7th inning to tie the game and had an excellent opportunity to score in the top of the 9th inning, with runners on second and third with one out.  However, Vienna retired the next two batters.  In the bottom of the 10th inning with two outs, Vienna got hits from their 8th and 9th hitters in the lineup to set the stage for Bryan Harthun’s single up the middle to score the winning run.  Springfield had their chances but a few errors and the lack of timely hits lead to the loss.  Springfield left 8 runners on base.
