The White County Middle School baseball team came to close to picking up their fifth win of the season, on Thursday night. However, the Warriors were on the wrong endof a 3-2 defeat to Algood. The game was tied at two, with Algood batting in the bottom of the fifth when they singled on the first pitch of the at-bat, scoring one run.
The pitching for both sides was strong, as they combined to strike out five hitters. Algood would strike first, scoring one run to take an early 1-0 lead. Neither team could get much going until the top of the fifth inning when the Warriors would strike for two runs.
D.J. Paul would get the rally going with a one-out single. Grant Miller would follow that up when he reached on an error that would score Paul and tie the game up at 1-1. Jack Guy would then come up with two out. Guy would take a 2-1 pitch to centerfield for a triple that would score Miller and give the Warriors the 2-1 lead.
However, Algood would answer with two runs in the bottom of the inning to pick up the 3-2 win.
