Ainsworth jumped out to a 7-0 lead after three innings to fuel a 13-4 victory over No. 2 seed Bertrand-Loomis in the opening round of the Class C Area 7 Senior Legion Baseball Tournament Friday at Overton.

Riggin Temple retired the first seven batters he faced before allowing an unearned run in the third inning. After throwing 59 pitches, Post 79 coach Troy Brodbeck relieved Temple so he would be eligible to pitch again on Monday, should Ainsworth make the fourth day of the tournament. Had Temple thrown more than 60 pitches, he would not have been able to pitch again until Tuesday until new rules implemented this year by the American Legion.

Ben Allen retired all four batters he faced in relief of Temple, striking out three, before he injured a leg running the bases in the top of the sixth inning.

Luke Peters worked the final two innings, battling control issues in the sixth inning and allowing three runs to see Bertrand-Loomis cut the Ainsworth lead from 8-1 to 8-4.

However, Post 79 tacked on a five-spot in the top of the seventh inning to regain the margin, and Peters tossed a 1-2-3 seventh inning to close the game.

Temple finished with five strikeouts and no walks in his 3-2/3 innings of work to earn the win.

Nine of Ainsworth’s 10 batters during the game recorded at least one hit, as Post 79 pounded out 16 hits in the seven-inning game. At the top of the lineup, Bronc Temple went 2-for-3 with three runs scored, four stolen bases and two RBIs.

Grant Stec finished 2-for-5 with three RBIs and two runs scored. Riggin Temple collected three hits, including a ground-rule double in the fourth. Allen and Jacob Fernau each added a pair of hits, with Fernau stealing two bases and scoring three runs.

With the victory, Ainsworth advances to a 7 p.m. winner’s bracket game Saturday against Gordon-Rushville, who knocked off host Overton Friday 6-1.

Top seed Alma shut out Curtis-Maywood in the first game Friday, 10-0, in five innings. In game two, Bridgeport survived a late rally to defeat No. 4 Imperial, 8-7. Bridgeport led, 8-4, going into the bottom of the seventh, but Imperial scored three runs and had the tying run at third base and the winning run at second with just one out. However, the final two Imperial batters struck out to end the game.

Imperial faces Curtis-Maywood at 11:30 a.m. Saturday in an elimination game, followed by a 2 p.m. elimination game between Bertrand-Loomis and Overton.
