After Ste. Genevieve dropped two straight games at the Terre Haute, indiana Tournament Post 150 hoped to get back in the win column.

Ste. Genevieve accomplished that goal Wednesday night, but its opponent didn’t make it easy.

Post 150 and De Soto both contended with a tight strike zone and a few missed opportunities, but Keaton Boyer delivered the biggest offensive blast of the game for Ste. Genevieve, and Post 150 rolled on to a 6-3 win at Yanks Field.

It was the second tightly-contested game between the two programs as Ste. Genevieve won the previous meeting 7-6 on June 6.

“I don’t think we ever took De Soto lightly,” said Ste. Genevieve head coach Junie Basler. “They’re competitive every year, and they had us beat out there. They made a couple of miscues and we ended up coming back and winning that ballgame. They’re a good ball club. They’ve had a good program for years and are always very competitive. They always give us trouble, so I don’t think we took them lightly the first time around. We sure didn’t take them lightly tonight. We knew we had to come out and play a good ballgame to win.”

Ste. Genevieve shut out Farmington 15-0 in three innings Friday night at Yanks Field for its 10th win.
