Pioneers crush East Hamilton
Phillip King
Coach Phillip King looks on during Warren County High School baseball action this season.

Kason Holder started on the mound Saturday and pitched a complete game as Warren County mercy ruled East Hamilton in five innings for a dominant 14-2 victory that made the Pioneers tournament champions in the East Hamilton New Balance Tournament this past weekend. 

Kason Holder made some noise with his bat as well in the second inning when he hit a triple to score three runs. 

The game was never in doubt as the Pioneers exploded for 6 runs in the first inning and 4 runs in the second inning. Holder had good control of his pitches, and the East Hamilton Hurricanes had no chance of catching the Pioneers in this game. 

Warren County won four games in three days in the tournament, and the Pioneers were never really challenged. They outscored their opponents 47-10. 

The Holder brothers, Kason and Ryland, had 9 hits on Saturday alone. Westen Wilson had a hot bat during the tournament and is currently leading the team with a .356 batting average. Kason Holder leads the team in RBIs with 18.


PIONEER HITTERS

Kason Holder 3, Ty Martin 2, Braden Bottoms 2, Omari Harris 1, Westen Wilson 1, Ryland Holder 1, Jace Brantley 1 and Alec Hobbs 1. Producing RBIs were Kason Holder 4, Ty Martin 2, Westen Wilson 1, Ryland Holder 1, Omari Harris 1 and Alec Hobbs 1. 


PIONEER PITCHER

Kason Holder pitched 5 innings with 4 strikeouts and gave up 3 hits and no earned runs.
