This week’s tournament was played at Little Creek Park in South Charleston.
Barboursville enjoyed big two-out innings in the 2nd, 4th and 5th frames including two-out grand slams in two of the innings.
Brody Aliff broke the game open with a bomb over the left field fence in the 4th and Jayce Gould cleared the bases with a centerfield shot in the 5th.
Martinsburg got a home run in the first evening off the bat of Mikey Jackson but could score no more than two runs in any one inning the rest of the way.
