The BerMis Junior and Senior Legion baseball teams traveled to Hershey last Sunday with both squads suffering losses to the hosts.
The Seniors scored one run in the third and three more in the fifth, but that wasn’t enough to overcome Hershland’s offense as BerMis lost, 11-4.
Chandler Wagner started on the mound for BerMis and went two innings before Grant Dahlgren came in to finish the game.
BerMis’ first run scored on back-to-back singles from Drew Lauby and Wagner with two outs in the third.
In the fifth, Brian Hemmele was hit by a pitch to lead off the inning, followed by three straight singles from Riley Johnson, Lauby and Wagner.
The Juniors lost a heartbreaker on a walk-off hit in the last inning by Hershland, making the final score 9-8.
Brian Hemmele started the game pitching and Isaac Dunn went in to finish.
Hemmele walked to lead off the game and Riley Johnson followed with an RBI single. Aden Matejka drew a walk and Johnson and Matejka both scored on a two-run single by Spencer Rice.
Johnson crossed the plate again in the third after leading off with a base hit and scored on a single by Justus Harvey.
In the fifth, Isaac Dunn and Harvey drew walks and came around on a three-run home run by Andrew Dennis.
Matejka scored BerMis’ final run in the sixth, reaching on a two-out walk and scoring on an RBI single by Dunn.
