Landon Koenig slides safely

Mayville American Legion first-baseman Landon Koenig slides safely into home for a run against Oak Grove on Tuesday. Koenig, who moved from Page to Portland, made his debut for Mayville in the win.

MAYVILLE – The new kid delivered at the plate. The grizzled vet on the mound didn’t fare too poorly, either.

Landon Koenig, a Region 2 standout who recently moved from Page to Portland, belted two doubles and piled up four RBIs in his debut Tuesday on Mayville’s American Legion team.

The new recruit admitted he was nervous for his first game in a Patriots uniform.

But, as it turned out, Koenig didn’t need to be.

Recent MayPort-CG grad and staff ace Sawyer Satrom tossed a two-hit shutout to lead Mayville to a 19-0 win over Oak Grove on Tuesday afternoon in the summer opener for both teams.

Mayville followed that lopsided win with a 12-1 victory over the Lumberjacks to start the season 2-0.
