#2 Independence 3 @ Shady Spring 2

Wyatt AdkinsIndependence moved to 5-1 on the season in large part because of the efforts of Region III Class AA Preseason Player of the Year Wyatt Adkins. The shortstop, who is a West Virginia Weslyan recruit, hit two solo home runs to give him a total of four in his past two games. Adkins also singled and was walked intentionally in his final at bat.

Brian Sexton (4 IP, 3 hits, 0 runs) and Andrue Hughart (3 IP, 3 hits, 1 ER) combined for the win on the mound. Drew Green led the Shady Spring attack going 2-for-3 with an RBI.

Since a season opening loss to Greenbrier East, the Class 2A #2 ranked Patriots have won five games in a row while outscoring their opponents  68-5.
