Placeholder Image
What a difference a day makes. One night after mustering four hits in a 5-1 loss to Cumberland County in Crossville, the Pioneers put on an offensive clinic to beat the Jets 10-1 Tuesday night at Patrick Ramsey Field.Warren County (14-11) had 12 hits against the Jets at home, led by a 4-for-4 performance from senior Garrison Holmes and a three-hit, three-RBI night for sophomore Lee Carden.The Pioneers needed a win Tuesday after falling to the Jets Monday in the first game of the home-and-home series. With the victory, Warren County improved to 3-3 in District 6-AAA play to set up a big series with Coffee County next week.At home against Cumberland County, the Pioneers never resembled the team that struck out 15 times in Crossville.Warren County scored two runs in the first inning, three more in the third and finished off Cumberland County with a five-run sixth to win for the fifth time in its last seven games.After a 6-4-3 double play stopped the Jets in the top of the first, the Pioneer offense got started quickly.Logan Underhill, who moved to the lead-off spot for the first time, began the game with a single.
