Connor Saunders makes a hit against Dell Rapids in Post 1's win at home Monday.

The Vermillion Post 1 Legion baseball team played at home against Dell Rapids this past Monday. Vermillion defeated Dell Rapids 6-2.

Jacob Chaussee took the mound for Post 1 through six innings.

“My expectations going into the game were to just play our game and come with an aggressive attitude which I think we did very well,” said Chaussee.

The home team took a 2-0 lead after the first inning. Post 1 held Dell Rapids to zero through five innings while adding four runs of their own.

Dell Rapids scored two in the sixth inning. Vermillion held the 6-2 lead for the rest of the game for the win.

Vermillion had seven hits and two errors throughout the game. Dell Rapids had six hits and four errors.

On offense, Drew Thelen had three RBIs and two hits. Dylan Thelen tallied two RBIs.

“Offensively, I think we did a good job of having good at-bats and being aggressive batters.”

From the mound, Chaussee threw six innings, recording six strikeouts and 19 first-pitch strikes.

“As a pitcher, I was hoping to throw strikes and also, utilize my curveball a bit more than I usually do which helped me for several batters,” said Chaussee.

Post 1’s next game will be this Saturday at 2 p.m. at Tea.
