Wheeling Post 1 defeated Moundsville Post 3 by the final of 6-2 in Wheeling's home-opener at the I-470 Chambers Complex in Wheeling.

Wheeling catcher Dominic Ellis drilled a two-runner homer in the bottom of the second inning to the game at 2-2.

Post 3 scored twice in the top of the first against Wheeling starter Trevor Stewart. Matt Brooks relieved Stewart after four innings, and pitched the final three innings.

Ellis would come up again in the bottom of the third, and smash a shot that was bobbled by the Moundsville third baseman, allowing two runs to score as Nate Bakaitis and Andrew Kowalo trotted home to make it 4-2.

In the bottom of the fourth inning, Wheeling left fielder Mo Mo Felt singled in Jesse Hartley to make it 5-2 Wheeling.

Moundsville gave Wheeling an insurance run in the sixth, when a catcher's pick-off attempt at first went into right field, allowing Nick Naumann to score the final run.

Wheeling improves to 5-0 on the season.
