WINCHESTER -- For John Lowery Jr., his proudest moment as manager of the Winchester Royals wasn't when his team was on top of the Valley Baseball League. In fact, it was when his Royals weren't even playing .500 ball.
The Valley Baseball League finals are set.
Covington defeated Winchester and Haymarket took down New Market in the second game of both series on Friday night. Both series were sweeps, and the finals will be a showdown between the two lowest seeds in the eight-team tournament, which started earlier this week.
