It was a close call as Colby Elkins steals second as DeKalb Countys second baseman tries for the tag Thursday in Smithville.
In a low-scoring pitching battle Thursday night, the WCHS Pioneers had a slim 1-run lead going into the bottom of the seventh, 2-1, as they tried to contain the DeKalb County Tigers for the win.That’s when things went south for Warren County (4-4, 3-1) as a walk, followed by a hit batter sent Tigers to first and second. A sacrifice bunt by Paxton Butler advanced runners to second and third as DeKalb had only 1 out.On the next at bat, DeKalb hit a grounder and a miscue on the Pioneer defense allowed 2 runs for the Tigers, ending the ballgame, 3-2.“I was very happy with how we competed against the Jennings kid. He is the best pitcher we’ve faced so far and I thought we had really good at-bats,” said WCHS coach Adam Childs.
