Jennings surrendered only two runs, part of a rough third inning, before settling down to go the distance.Warren County was able to give Jennings just enough runs to pick up its first District 6-AAA victory. The Pioneers got off to a quick start offensively, though the Red Raiders helped out quite a bit.
