Placeholder Image
Heading into the finals of the middle school baseball tournament Sunday in Sparta, who would have thought a one-out walk, a stolen base, and a single to right would be enough offense to win?But that was all the scoring necessary for the Tullahoma Wildcats to nip the Warren County Middle School Pioneers.In a masterful pitching duel, Tullahoma edged the Pioneers 1-0 to win the conference championship.“Obviously we would have liked to have won the tournament, but the boys played their hearts out and there’s nothing more you can ask for than that,” said WCMS coach Jordan Underhill.Tullahoma’s run came in the third inning on its only hit of the game. The Pioneers only managed one hit themselves, a Brandon Hennessee shot to right to start the seventh.Both pitchers were clearly in control. For the Pioneers, Jack Keele finished with seven strikeouts in bringing his best stuff to the mound.
