Lewis fans 10 to lift Miners

Sam Lewis allowed just one run on four hits over his seven-inning stint to lead the West Virginia Miners past Chillicothe 7-1 Thursday at Linda K. Epling Stadium.

Lewis struck out 10 in the victory as the Miners ran their win streak to seven games to remain tied for first place in the Eastern Division with Richmond.

Tyler Rockefellow closed out the final two innings, holding the Paints hitless.

Clayton Prestridge picked up two hits on the evening and drove in two runs to lead the Miners at the plate. Luke Meeteer also had two hits, including a double, and had an RBI.

    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.
