The Warren County High School baseball team didn’t see its momentum slow down Thursday night when the Pioneers played their first pool play game of the Grundy County tournament.The Pioneers beat Huntland 11-1 in six innings, improving to 3-0 and picking up their second run-rule victory of the year.Warren County continued a trend from the team’s first two games by taking an early lead. The Pioneers scored in the first inning for the third consecutive game and went on to win in a rout.Senior Brett Mullican got the action started with a bunt single, then moved to second on a steal. Mullican moved to third during Collin Hutchins’ at-bat, then scored on a ground ball to second base by Garrison Holmes.Tristan Smith, a sophomore starting his first varsity game on the mound, had a rocky second inning as Huntland came back to tie the game.Smith walked the first batter, which always seems to spell trouble.
