FAIRMONT — Fairmont Post 17 powered past Bridgeport on Friday evening at Bridgeport High School, 13-3.

In the rout, Fairmont was led by Fairmont Senior ace, Andrew Strand.

He went the distance for Post 17, while tallying six strikeouts and walking three.

“Andrew pitched really well,” Fairmont’s head coach Marty Morgan said. “We had runners on a couple of times and he stepped up and struck a kid out and then got another kid to ground out.

“He also pitched ahead of the batters in the count and just threw well.”
