The Lookout Valley Yellowjackets battle on to fight another day.

Wednesday, to be precise.

In action Monday evening, Riley Phillips gets the win as the Yellowjackets defeated visiting Coalfield 8-6.

Phillips was in a jam in the first inning, but in a key play he triggered a rundown, catching Coalfield's first baseman Jake Kilby between second and third base. That was the final out of the top half of the first and the Yellowjackets would score four runs in the bottom half of the frame.

They advance to the Region 2-A Championship game Wednesday night at home.
