Remington suffered a setback Monday night losing to nemesis Winchester, 4-1, in a senior division American Legion baseball game at Liberty High School.

The loss broke a three-game Post 257 win streak.

It also threatens Remington’s (4-6-1) chance of securing fourth place in the regular-season race and a first-round home playoff game next week.

Down 1-0 heading into the seventh inning Post 257 gave up three unearned runs.

Twice shortstop Travis Croson overthrew first base allowing runs to score.

Catcher Tyler Shaffer threw to second on a bunt attempt but with neither Croson nor second baseman Tyler Colwell covering the bag, the runner easily took the base.

Post 257 got on the scoreboard in the bottom of the seventh when Matt Shuck’s single scored Tyler Johnson.

Shuck got caught in a rundown between first and second preventing another Remington run from scoring.

Gavin Cranford took the loss for Post 257. Jason Alverex pitched the final two innings for Remington.

Winchester improved to 9-1 on the season with the win.

“We let this one get away,” Remington Coach Garrett Croson said. “There’s a reason Winchester’s in first place. They’re the best defensive team in the league and tonight, we hit to them everytime.”

Remington returns to action Tuesday with a home date against Front Royal. The team also plays at home Thursday and Friday before finishing the regular season Saturday night at Front Royal.
