The White County Middle School baseball team opened up their week with two CTC Conference wins over Warren County Middle School.
The Warriors would open their week with an 11-1 win, on Monday night, and then follow that up with a 6-4 win over the Pioneers, on Tuesday night.
On Monday, the Warriors had all cylinders firing on offense, winning big over Warren 11-1.
Jack Guy got the start for the Warriors on the hill. He surrendered one run on two hits over five and a third inning. He would strike out six and walk one.
In the second inning, with the Warriors trailing 1-0, the Warriors’ offense would have their best inning of the game, as they would strike for four runs in the inning. Eli Kelly would lead off the inning with a single. Connor Brewington would follow that up, as he would reach on an error by the left field that would put runners on second and third with nobody out. Jefferey Loveland would then follow that up with a walk to load the bases. Landon Nash would then walk to tie the game up at 1-1. D.J. Paul would then give the Warriors the lead with a sacrifice fly to put the Warriors up 2-1. Grant Miller would then bunt, but Loveland would be forced out trying to advance to third on the bunt. With runners on first and second with two out, Seth Green would come up big for the Warriors as he would single to centerfield on the first pitch he saw, scoring Nash to put the Warriors up 3-1. Miller would then score on the third pitch of the next at-bat to give the Warriors the 4-1 lead.
From there the Warriors would never look back, as they would score two runs in the third inning, fifth inning, and sixth innings. They would also strike for a single run in the fourth inning, as they finish the game in six innings and run away with an 11-1 win.
Kelly led the Warriors at the plate. Kelly finished the game with four hits. Green added in two hits for the Warriors, and Paul, Miller, Guy, Brown, Brewington, and Nash would also finish with a hit.
On Tuesday night, the Warriors would get the lead late in the game in a 6-4 win over the Pioneers. The game was tied at three, with the Warriors batting in the top of the seventh inning when Miller would single on a 1-1 count, that would score one run to give the Warriors the lead. The Warriors would score two more runs in the inning to push their lead to 6-3. The Warriors would hold on late to pick up the win.
The Warriors got things going in the first inning when Paul would lead off the game with a single. Miller would follow that up grounding out to second base, scoring Paul to give the Warriors the early 1-0 lead.
The Warriors would pick up two more runs in the top of the fourth inning to extend their lead to 3-0. However Warren County would strike for two runs in the bottom of the fourth inning and a single run in the fifth to tie the game up at three.
Green got the start for the Warriors on the hill. Green lasted four and two-thirds innings, allowing six hits and three runs while striking out one, and walking none. Paul would finish the game, throwing the final two and third innings, giving up three hits, one run, and striking out four.
