WEST FRANKFORT -- Carrier Mills junior American Legion baseball team completed its jaunt through the combined 24th and 25th District tournament with a 3-2, 11-inning win over Carterville in the championship game.  Carrier Mills finished 4-0 for the tournament.

Carrier Mills jumped on top with two in the first.  Carterville answered with two in the fifth to tie the game.

Klayton Wright came on in relief for Carrier Mills and put an end to the Carterville threat.

Neither team could push across a run until Carrier Mills scored in the top of the 11th to take a 3-2 lead.

Wright finished it off in the bottom half.  He wound up pitching six shutout innings to pick up the win and was named tourney MVP.

Carrier Mills advances to the Division tournament at Breese this weekend.  Carterville declined the opportunity to play in the Division tourney, so Orient will go instead.
