Busy week for Post 641

The Plato American Legion Post 641 baseball team saw their share of the ballpark over the last week, with six games jammed into a six-day stretch from Wednesday, June 21, through Monday, June 26.

Plato began the run by suffering its first loss of the season in a 9-0 setback against visiting Watertown. Spencer Lepel logged Plato’s lone hit of the game in the shutout loss.

As quiet as Post 641’s bats were against Watertown, they exploded against St. Peter in the opening game of the Andyman Tournament in Young America on Friday, June 23.

Plato won the opener 16-1 on 15 hits. Peyton Sell collected six RBI as part of a 3-for-3 day that included a three-run home run. Sell also notched the win by allowing just one hit in a five-inning complete game performance.

Post 641 followed up that win with another, defeating Minnetonka 16-13 in Young America on Saturday, June 24.
