Lions fall to West Union
By CLAUDE VINSON
The weather was cooperating mildly last Friday when the West Union Eagles invaded the Lions’ Den.
The Eagles brought a record of 9-4 to pit against the 7-2 mark of H.W. Byers.
Kyle Skelton took the mound for the Lions to start things off. His first batter was Tyler Whaley, who got a double on a field error. He sent the next hitter back to the dugout. Skelton then loaded the bases with a walk but he had two outs. A hit batter kept the bases full and walked in a score. Skelton retired the next batter on a 3-2 pitch.
