TERRE HAUTE -- Wayne Newton Post 346 post a 24-run outburst on the road at Crawfordsville on Tuesday night by drilling visiting Greene County, 15-0 in six innings, on Thursday to improve to 24-5 overall this summer.

Dalton Sexton threw a complete game four-hitter for Post 346 and AJ Reed continued his long ball onslaught by hitting his ninth of the summer as part of a 4-for-4 game with five RBI. Cody Thornton also went deep for Wayne Newton, hitting a three-run shot as Post 346 scored seven runs in the sixth frame to end the game an inning early via the 10-run rule.

Northview rising senior Kodie Girton added a 2-for-4 game at the plate with an RBI and Ricky Wheatfill, playing rightfield for the first time, drilled a triple in the victory.
