OEC Kings defeat local Legion; season record now 4-8

LYNDON — The host Orleans-Essex-Caledonia Kings on this past Thursday dealt the Addison County American Legion baseball team a 10-0, five-inning setback.
Brandon Brunell tossed a five-inning two-hitter, walking one and striking out four. Chris Wood and Wyatt Cameron each singled for the AC hits.
OEC scored three in the third to take the lead off AC starter Adam Whitcomb. Jake Choiniere singled in the first run, and Brody Fillion followed with a two-run, two-out triple. Choiniere later in the game added another RBI hit, and Garrett McDonald singled and doubled for OEC.
Whitcomb exited after three innings having allowed those three earned runs on four hits; he walked none and struck out four. Nolan Whitcomb tossed 1.1 innings, allowing four runs, only one earned, on two hits, and Hale Hescock threw 0.2 inning, allowing three runs, two earned on three hits.
AC fell to 4-8 with Thursday’s loss and faces a challenge to become one of the four teams out of eight that reach the Northern Division playoffs.
The local nine were set to play two road doubleheaders this past weekend, at Essex on Saturday and at SD Ireland on Sunday. Then three of their final five games are on the road: AC is set to visit Colchester on Tuesday, host SD Ireland on Thursday, visit South Burlington for an 11 a.m. doubleheader on Saturday, and then wrap up with a home date on Monday the 23rd vs. OEC. Weekday games all start at 5:30 p.m.
