Pitt County Post 39 wins Eastern Championship, headed to Area One Championship

Posted: Updated:
ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. -

They've been the lower seed throughout the American Legion Playoffs, but despite the odds Pitt County found a way to win the Eastern Championship on Wednesday. With a strong pitching performance from Thomas Conlin and a bit of timely hitting, Post 39 finds themselves one series away from the state tournament.

Tyler Ables and Kyle Cross led Pitt County with two hits a piece in game three. Thomas Conlin went 8 and a third on the mound in a winning effort, and Aaron Clark added on two runs.

Pitt County will play Garner in the Area One Championship Series. The first game is Friday in Garner, then the teams will return to ECU on Saturday for game two at Clark-Leclair. This is another best of five series.
