SoVaNow.com / July 31, 2014The South Boston-Halifax County Dixie Pre-Majors had a strong World Series run in Chipley, Fla.

Despite the loss, Virginia picked up two quality wins.
Virginia pinned a 6-4 loss on Louisiana the second day. Tripp Bennett worked most of the game on the mound and Ben Major relieved when Bennett reached his pitching totals.
