CHEYENNE – Cheyenne American Legion Post 6 needed just two hits to secure a victory Friday.
A day later, the bats came alive for the Sixers, who pounded out a combined 25 hits en route to sweeping a doubleheader at Laramie on Saturday.
Cheyenne earned wins of 13-2 and 7-0.
Post 6 (42-18) 3-0 lead in the top of the first inning of the opening game, thanks in part to a two-run double off the bat of Zack Costopoulos. Cheyenne then exploded for nine runs in the fifth inning.
Costopoulos was 2 for 4 with three RBI and two runs scored, while Andrew Johnson was 3 for 3, including a triple, with three RBI and a run scored. Colter McAnelly also went 2 for 4, while Grant Redam went 2 for 3.
Trenton Rodriguez went the distance and picked up his eighth win of the season.
A five-run second inning helped break open the second game of the day. Johnson whacked a two-run double to right during the frame in which the visitors grabbed a 5-0 lead.
Johnson was 3 for 4 with two RBIs and two runs scored, while Redman was 3 for 4 with an RBI and a run scored. Kaden Anderson picked up a pair of hits, as well.
Ty Lobmeyer also worked all seven innings and earned his fifth win of the year.
