Slippery Rock Sliders 3, West Virginia Miners 2

SLIPPERY ROCK, Pa. — Local sports fans cheer success for a Mickelson on the golf course, but not necessarily on the diamond. Cooper Mickelson’s RBI single in the bottom of the eight inning proved to be the game winner as Slippery Rock slipped by the Miners 3-2 Tuesday.

The Miners fell behind early 2-0, but rallied for two runs in the top fifth inning to tie the score, but could not find the plate the rest of the evening.

The loss coupled with a Butler Blue Sox win drops the Miners lead to three games in the Eastern Division of the Prospect League standings and leaves their magic number at three to win the division.

The Miners will send Kevin Johnstone to the hill tonight in hopes to salvage a split of the two-game series.

    Finally, warmer weather has arrived to the Mountain State. I’m told, it’s socially acceptable to be late nowadays and there is even a term for it — being fashionably late. Of course, I have also been told that camo is the new black in fashion. I don’t care much for tardiness, or for fashion for that matter, but I am perfectly content with the weather forecaster’s report as of late. And if wearing camouflage is trendy, I will fit in just nicely at any social gathering.
