MT VERNON - Salem Post 128 Jr Legion advanced to continue play as they eliminated Mt Vernon at the District 23 West side of the tournament 1-0.  Rowdy Hensley's sac-fly to score Will Fulkerson was the only run starting and winning pitcher Riley Martin would need as he picked up the win.  Salem advances to play Effingham tonight from Teutopolis and will try to do enough to advance to the 5th Division Tournament which will be held in Bethalto.  Effingham advanced with a 1-0 win over Dieterich.

    Breese Gray won the District 23 championship winning their 38th game of the summer in a 9-3 win over Newton Post 20 in T-Town last night. 

NEW BADEN - The Senior Legion 5th Division Tournament got underway from New Baden on Monday night and the local teams got off to a pretty good start.  Carlyle Post 404 began the day with a 4-1 win over Herrin, and the host New Baden Post 321 ended the evening with a 5-0 shutout of Louisville. 

    Vandalia Post 95 will open their Division Tournament in New Baden today against Fairview Heights.

SALEM - The Peoples National Bank Tigers took Game 1 of the Salem City Series with an 8-3 win over the Rotary Reds. 

Chase Dodson worked 5 complete innings for the Tigers and struck out 12.  He only allowed 2 hits, but nothing after a 2-run homer off the bat of Logan Rubin in the 2nd inning that gave the Reds a 3-2 lead.  

The Tigers opened the scoring in the top of the first following a 2-out single from Dodson who advanced to third on an error and would score on a wild pitch.  Laten Wayer doubled in the bottom of the first and would steal third and score the Reds first run on a passed ball to tie it up.  

After Cory Smith singled and scored on an error in the 3rd to give the Tigers a brief 2-1 lead, Rubin blasted a shot deep to right-center to grab the lead back for the Reds.  

Peoples National Bank tied the game on an RBI double from Payton Curry in the fourth and later in the inning took the lead for good with an RBI single from Kaidan Roberts.  

The game was blown open in the fifth when the Tigers scored 4 runs including an RBI single from Kegan Parrish and Payton Curry as well as a 2-run triple off the bat of Carter Rose.  

The Reds threatened in their final at-bat with the bases loaded and their leadoff man at the plate, but couldn't get that elusive hit off Jaron Blomberg who was working in relief of Kaidin Roberts who entered the game in the sixth for Dodson.  

Game 2 is tonight as the Tigers go for the sweep, while the Reds will try to stay alive.  

You can listen to the City Series starting at 7pm on AM 1350.  Toby Gullion be joined tonight on the air by some young Salem Little Leaguers in Hunter Russell, Brogan and Nick Gregg as well as Keaton Gullion.  

It should be a fun night at the complex.
