Tyler Billings was on his game, on April 13, as he kept the Stone Memorial bats quiet to give the White County Middle School Warriors the 4-0 win over Stone Memorial.
The Warriors got their offense going early, scoring twice in the top of the first inning. Tucker Nash led off the game with a walk. D.J. Paul was then hit by a pitch to put runners on first and second with nobody out. Grant Slatten would then come up and lay down a sacrifice bunt but would reach on an error by the pitcher to load the bases with nobody out. Tucker Allen would then come up and ground into a fielder’s choice to the second baseman which scored Nash and put runners on first and third with one out and gave the Warriors the early 1-0 lead. Kade Clark would come up next and ground to the pitcher, but he was unable to get an out. This would score Paul and advance Allen to second giving the Warriors the early 2-0 lead.
That would be all the run support Billings would need, as he would only allow five Stone Memorial baserunners.
The Warriors would add to their lead scoring one run in the third inning and another run in the fifth inning to secure the win by a final score of 4-0.
Billings got the win for the Warriors. He went all five innings, striking out three and walking four.
Allen led the way at the plate for the Warriors, as he got two hits for the Warriors. Slatten was also able to get a hit for the Warriors.
