Peter Menges scattered nine hits over seven innings to earn the complete-game win as the Manitowoc American Legion baseball team beat De Pere 7-2 at home on Tuesday.

Menges allowed a run to start the game in the top of the first inning, but settled down afterward striking out three and walked one while allowing two runs — both earned.

Eli Steimle led Manitowoc (6-6) offensively, going 3-for-4 with a solo homer in the third. Steimle was one of four players with multiple hits for the American Legion as teammates Michael Longmeyer (2-for-4), Travis Dupont (2-for-4) and Jordan Witczak (2-for-3) all accomplished the feat.
