The Hannibal Legion Post 55 AAA baseball team earned three wins over the weekend to continue its positive momentum.

Hannibal (6-3) swept St. Peters on Saturday by scores of 11-2 and 9-5 and shut out Wentzville South 5-0 in the first game of a doubleheader Sunday.

Post 55's only blemish was an 11-7 loss in Sunday's nightcap as Wentzville South took control with a seven-run inning.

“We had a good weekend winning three out of four,” Hannibal coach Randy Trenhaile said. “We had the wheels fall off defensively in one inning, but I guess I should be happy that out of 28 innings we only had one bad inning.”

Adam Baxter pitched a complete game four-hitter while allowing two runs (one earned) in the first victory over St. Peters.

The Hannibal offense staked Baxter to a lead with six runs over the first two innings.
