Remington's Gavin Cranford scored on this perfectly executed hit and run in first-inning action.
Ty Pavlock rounds first heading to second on the first of four hits Thursday night. Pavlock finished with five RBIs.
Remington continued its winning routine Thursday when it hosted Stafford-Nationals in a senior division American Legion baseball game at Liberty High School in Bealeton.
Post 247 beat the Nationals 11-0 in a seven-inning slaughter.
Ty Pavlock hit 4 of 4 with a double and triple while knocking in five runs.
Justin Vaclavicek missed a no-hitter and perfect game giving up just one hit. He didn’t walk a single batter and struck out six.
It only took him 78 pitches the entire game.
“My breaking stuff was working tonight and I didn’t have to rely on just my fastball,” Vaclavicek said. “The ball was moving a lot and I had a nasty slider that was buckling at the knees.”
Winning for the third time this week Remington set itself up for a solid run for the upper division in the eight-team District 16 league.
Post 247 (4-4-1) has five games remaining in its regular season. Four will be home next week.
The team travels to Front Royal July 18 for a makeup game originally scheduled Wednesday night.
“We need to keep winning and move up in the standings,” Coach Garrett Croson said. “We want to host a playoff game and you have to be one of the top four teams to do that.
“The team has confidence now and are learning to play with each other, so that’s a really good chance.”
Remington had its best success in the fourth inning sending 11 batters to the plate and scoring eight runs.
Pavlock had a bases-clearing triple on a ball hit deep into the right field corner.
Tyler Johnson (2-for-3) followed with a RBI single that fell between three Post 290-N players chasing the high popup in shallow right.
Matt Shuck, playing his first game since a beaning last Friday night, finished 1 of 3. His two-RBI-single scored Johnson and Vaclavicek.
Austin Fisher finished the inning with a run-scoring sac bunt.
The team added single runs in the first, third and sixth innings.
