Paints end Miners' streak at 10

CHILLICOTHE, Ohio — The West Virginia Miners committed four errors, two leading to a pair of unearned runs, and lost 2-0 to the Chillicothe Paints Saturday night. The loss ended the Miners’ winning streak at 10.

Stuart Eisler singled and took second base on an error, then Justin Wagler was hit by a pitch to start the bottom of the first. West Virginia starter Evin Einhardt struck out Daniel Zuchowski and Giancarlo Brugnoni, but walked Nick Lombardi to load the bases.

James Miglin then reached on an error and Eisler scored to put the Paints up 1-0. Wagler then scored on a single by Jossue Delgado.

Meanwhile, Chillicothe starter Steve Laudicina shut the West Virginia offense down. He struck out four and didn’t walk a batter while allowing just four hits in the complete-game win.

Einhardt (1-1) did not give up an earned run over 5 2-3 innings. He had six strikeouts and allowed three hits, but also had six walks.

The Miners (22-13) lead Chillicothe (21-14) by one game in the Prospect League East Division.

The teams will play again at 7:05 p.m. today. Ali Asif will make his first start for the Miners against Chillicothe’s Nick Jensen-Clagg.

    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.
