Post #61 Juniors improve to 7-1, win gutsy wins at DLD Park Sunday afternoon

Sunday afternoon brought on a double header of sorts for the Sutton Post 61 Juniors, as the locals hosted both Overton and Stromsburg- Osceola-Shelby (SOS) at DLD Park.

The opener of the day nearly brought on Sutton’s second loss of the year as the Overton Bandits, behind a ninerun second inning, nearly pulled off the upset. A steady come-back attempt by Sutton produced a seven run sixth inning, to lift Sutton to a 15-14 win, while in game two, Sutton used a four-run sixth inning to steal a 6-4 win from the visiting SOS Juniors, as Post 61 improved to 7-1 on the year.

Sutton, behind three runs from Jackson Perrien, Eli Skalka and Will Reeson, took an early 3-0 lead over Overton in the opener Sunday. An offensive burst by the Bandits in the top of the second, where Overton had seven of their 12 hits in the game, including a triple and a pair of doubles, exploded for a 9-3 lead after the second frame, putting Sutton on their heels the rest of the way.
