Congratulations to kids from Toronto for sweeping the cheering competition at the Jefferson County Fair yesterday. The Toronto Titans won the recreational league with wins in the bantam, JV and varsity divisions. Toronto won the Jr. High level and the Red Knights won the high school varsity division. The Weirton Steelers made their first trip the Jefferson County event. Great job Steelers. The Indian Creek Chiefs and Young Buckeyes also did a fantastic job. Harding and Indian Creek were awesome in the Jr.
Manny Pina hit a two-run homer in the eighth inning to lift the Brewers past the Pirates 7-6. Keon Broxton homered twice, Neil Walker and Trivis Shaw also went deep for Milwaukee.
