Post 2 stays hot in win over Fairmont

If you sit close enough to the Post 2 dugout at Mylan Park on a game night, you’ll quickly learn there’s very little quiet about this team.
If a batter is at the plate for Morgantown, you’d best believe he has 17 of his teammates cheering him on the side.
As Post 2 hosted Fairmont on Tuesday evening, one of the common shouts of encouragement from their dugout was “Nobody better, nobody better.”
When you watched the team string together two consecutive three-run innings en route to an 8-2 win over their opponent, it was hard to disagree.
“A lot of things make a team special, but I think with us it goes back to the fact that 18 guys have collectively adopted a mindset and a common goal,” Post 2 coach Tyler Barnette said following the Tuesday evening victory.
“They’re not going to let anybody stop them from obtaining that goal. Day in and day out, if you know what you want to do, it’s going to be hard to stop.”
The action opened up with a rough start for Morgantown, as its usually-reliable bats were ice cold, stagnating their offense through the first three innings.
