Buckhannon Post 7 hit the diamond for the first time in five days Tuesday night, falling 8-1 on the road at Fairmont Post 17.
Fairmont scored six runs in the first three innings to gain an early advantage in the contest.
"It was just one of those nights that you have sometimes in baseball," Buckhannon head coach Steve Gandee said. "Everything we hit hard was at somebody, and everything they hit seemed to have eyes. I think the time off with the weather situation brought us out a little flat, but you have to give Fairmont credit.
"They used five different pitchers and they threw the ball well against us."
Fairmont scored three runs in the first, two in the second, and added a single run in the third inning for the early lead.
Playing add-on baseball, they tacked on two more in the bottom of the sixth. The only Buckhannon tally came in the top of the ninth.
Jake Goss scored the only Post 7 run, racing home on a Drew Gandee sacrifice fly to avert to shutout. Logan Moneypenny led Buckhannon's six-hit night with a three-for-four line that included a double. Nate Kemper collected two hits including a double, and Dalton Westfall also added a two-bagger.
Buckhannon falls to 7-11 with the loss and will return home tonight, hosting Beckley Post 32 for a 5 p.m. doubleheader at William Phillips Memorial Field.
