SISSONVILLE?- Elkins split a pair of games with South Charleston Saturday in American Legion action at Sissonville High School.
Post 29 (11-4) won the first game 2-1 behind a strong pitching performance from Scott Fox, who tossed a complete-game three-hitter.
Fox struck out seven and walked four in running his record to 2-0 on the season.
"Fox pitched really well for us," Elkins General Manager Chris George said. "He battled the entire game and stayed composed out on the mound."
Ryne Bonnell led the charge at the plate for Elkins with two hits and one RBI.
Fox helped his own cause by also collecting a pair of hits in the contest.
Craig Johnson suffered the loss for South Charleston in three innings pitched.
Post 29 dropped the second contest, 8-5.
Jared Jobst notched the win for Post 94 in relief.
Rease Ripley, Josh Kiser and Jordan Banks had two hits and one RBI each for South Charleston.
Trevor Mouser suffered the loss for Elkins in five innings pitched.
Fox led Post 29 at the dish in Game 2, finishing with two hits including a two-run home run.
Colby Gainer and Brennan Dettinger also finished with two hits each for Elkins.
"We had a good effort in both games," George said. "We just left two many guys on base. We need to find a way to get the key hit when we need it."
Post 29 will return to action today when it entertains Clarksburg for a 7 p.m. contest at Robin Harvey Memorial Field.
