Western Wayne jumped up on Carbondale by taking a 7 to 0 lead going into the 3rd inning. The Chargers never laid down and in the 3rd inning the bats and base running came alive. The Chargers scored 7 runs in the 3rd inning to tie the game up. The boys woke up and get the momentum going throughout the remainder of the game!
