Third Inning the Key in Miners’ Win


Beckley, WV (WOAY) – After almost a full week on the road, the West Virginia Miners returned to Epling Stadium Wednesday to face Butler for the fifth time in 2018.

The BlueSox scored first on a three-run home run from Colton Carney, but the Miners responded with early runs, including seven in the third inning, to win 13-7 at Epling Stadium.

The hosts capitalized on opportunities presented by several Butler miscues, including wild pitches and bases-loaded walks. Dylan Shockley batted 3-3 with three RBI, while Fernando Ortiz and Maddux Houghton each scored three runs.

The Miners & BlueSox play again at Epling Stadium on Thursday.
