|Post 13 advances; Grant wins Fairmont 10K
Clarksburg Post 13 moved within one game of the state tournament with a 5-4 win over Morgantown Post 2.
Jeff Straface's two-out single in the bottom of the eighth scored Craig Kelley and broke a 4-4 tie. Jeremy Wright pitched the final two innings to pick up the win.
"Once again this team showed they are battlers," Post 13 coach Pat Secret said. "This has been a real good tournament, and I think when the kids got the No. 1 seed, it made them want to play like that."
Wright homered twice for Post 13, including a two-run shot in the first to give Clarksburg a 2-1 lead. Wright led off the third with a solo home run that gave Clarksburg a 4-1 lead.
Straface added two hits for Clarksburg, and teammate Kurt Skasik was 2-for-4 with one run scored.
Clarksburg faces the winner of Fairmont and Morgantown today at 1 p.m. at Anker Field in Morgantown. In the event of a Clarksburg loss, a second game will be played immediately following the first game.
