In their second matchup in two days, the WCHS Pioneers made short work of Stone Memorial, this time in Crossville, defeating the Panthers in five innings, 11-0, their second run-rule romp of the week.Just Monday night at Patrick Ramsey Field, the Pioneers blanked Stone, 10-0, in five as well.On the mound Tuesday for the Pioneers (4-3, 3-1) was Brooks Helton, who didn’t allow a single run in the contest and gave up just 1 hit with 7 strikeouts.“We got off to a slow start but we kept at it and put them away late,” said WCHS Pioneer coach Adam Childs. “I was proud of how we took care of business. It’s always great to get a district sweep.”Warren County started early with runs in both the top of the first and third innings, but it was a fourth-inning rally that raised the total tally to 10-0 as the Pioneers scored 8 runs to cement a solid foundation that left the Panthers with no answers.Up 2 runs in the top of the fourth, the Panther pitcher walked Nick Williamson who was replaced by courtesy runner Tyler Prater who promptly stole second.
