Warren Countys Taisei Yasunaga pins down this Cookeville player in a rundown Tuesday at Patrick Ramsey Field.
Inclement weather thwarted Warren County’s road trip to Cookeville on Monday, which led to a doubleheader on Tuesday as the Pioneers played host to the Cavaliers.When the books were balanced, the Pioneers (6-5, 4-2) split the doubleheader, with the Cavs taking the first game, 9-2, and the Pioneers the second, 6-1.“The first game was a really tough one, but I was really proud how we came back and earned the split,” said Warren County coach Adam Childs. “It’s always tough coming back from a loss but the guys stepped up and got a big win in game two.”Game one found the Pioneers down 3 runs after the first inning and a 5-run deficit after two, 5-0, as Cookeville came out batting hard and getting hits. The Cavalier bats were smoking as they had 16 hits, while Warren County had 5.
