Bad weather, partly from Hurricane Irma last week, forced the Franklin County Lady Lions into a very tough stretch.

The team has faced consecutive games back-to-back before this season, but this latest scheduling shakeup involved region games.

The Lady Lions ended up playing four region games in five days.

Former Franklin County Lion Brent Honeywell finished his 2017 season with the Durham Bulls by being the winning  pitcher in the Triple-A National Championship Game Tuesday.

The Durham Bulls are the top team in all of Minor League Baseball’s Triple-A class, and top Tampa Bay Rays prospect and Franklin County native Brent Honeywell is a big reason for that.

The Bulls won the International League’s Governor’s Cup last week, and on Tuesday, defeated the Memphis Redbirds of the Pacific Coast League 5-3 for the Triple-A National Championship.
