American Legion team hits tough patch on the road

ADDISON COUNTY — The Addison County American Legion baseball team endured a rough stretch of early-season road games, dropping four straight away from home over the weekend an on Tuesday. 
AC (1-4) was set to play at South Burlington on Wednesday and will visit Franklin on this Thursday before finally hosting a game this weekend — Montpelier will visit on Sunday at 11 a.m. 
A doubleheader vs. Barre scheduled for this coming Saturday was postponed due to Spaulding High School’s graduation. According to AC Coach Cam Curler they were rescheduled as 5:30 p.m. home games on Friday, June 28 and Friday, July 12.
AC plays its home games at Middlebury College’s South Street diamond, near Porter Hospital. 
On this past Saturday host Orleans-Essex-Caledonia, known as OEC, swept a doubleheader from AC, 8-4 and 11-6. Nolan Whitcomb took the loss in the opener, and Jarret Muzzy was the losing pitcher in the nightcap. 
Tucker Stearns sparked the AC offense by reaching base in all eight of his plate appearances in the double dip, with four hits and four walks. Stearns doubled twice and scored twice. Casey Kimball added two hits in each game, while Ryan Whitcomb contributed two hits and scored twice in the nightcap. 
On Sunday host Colchester blanked AC, 10-0. Dustin Whitcomb suffered the loss, and Nolan Whitcomb poked a pair of hits for AC. 
On Tuesday host Essex scored three unearned runs in the fifth inning to pull away and take a 6-3 victory over AC. Wyatt Cameron struck out five but was the tough-luck loser. Kimball and O’Brien led the AC offense by each driving in a run and scoring a run.
