The Beaver Dam Post 146 White Construction 19U American Legion Baseball Team blew out Lomira-Theresa 13-4 on Sunday to capture the Wisconsin American Legion District 6 Regional title and earn a spot in the Double-A State Tournament next weekend in Antigo.
Post 146 plated one run in the top the first on a Wesley Biel double to right center scored Alex Soto. After L-T countered with a run in the bottom of the 1st, Beaver Dam exploded for five runs in the top of the 2nd and never looked back. That big inning was highlighted by a bases clearing, three run triple by Logan Thomas. Soto went 3×4 with 2 RBI and 2 runs scored out of the lead-off spot. Nate Tisdale also knocked in a pair of runs for Post 146.
Tisdale tossed 5 innings, giving up just three hits and four runs (3 earned) to notch the win. He struck out 7 and walked four.
Post 146 White Construction (10-5) will face the host Antigo on Friday night at 7pm in their state tournament opener.
With Sunday’s win BD Post 146 has qualified for the Double-A State Tournament five of the last six seasons in 2015, 2016, 2018, 2019, and now 2021. COVID-19 cancelled the 2020 season.
