NUTTER FORT, W.Va (WDTV) - The Lewis County Minutemen have completed an incredible turnaround, and have won their regional final against the Robert C Byrd Eagles, 4-1, to send the team to the state finals for the first time in 37 years!
A slow game led to no runs until the 5th inning, when Grant Mealey dug a shot into left field to bring Joey Aman and Brayden Carder home to start the offense for Lewis County.
The Minutemen would hold on to win behind a complete game from pitcher Trenton Hunt, and their players and fans swarmed the field as the Minutemen created history Tuesday night.
