The WCHS Pioneer baseball team made it three in a row with their non-district win, 6-1, over the Golden Eagles on Saturday, after first winning on the road Friday.
“We played really well and Trevor did a great job of shutting them down,” said Warren County coach Adam Childs. “In the two games against them we played really good defense and had some very timely hitting. I was proud of how we came out and took care of business.”
Trevor Collins earned the win for Warren County throwing for 7 innings, allowing 1 run, 1 hit, 1 walk and 10 strikeouts in dominating from the mound.
Shelbyville took an early lead in the top of the first after a wild pitch by Collins allowed the only run for the Golden Eagles. After the first, it was all Pioneers as Warren County scored 1 run in the bottom of the third after Brooks Helton scored off a passed ball, 1-1.
The Pioneers took the lead for good with 3 runs in the fourth when Lucas Rogers singled on a hard ground ball to right field, 2-1. Rogers scored off a Wesley Jennings groundout, 3-1, and Helton scored off a Nick Williamson groundout, 4-1.
Shelbyville went down 1-2-3 in the top of the sixth, and Warren County scored 2 more runs after Helton crossed home, 5-1 and Isaac Golden scored the final run off a Williamson sacrifice, 6-1.
Warren County had nine hits. Helton, Golden, and Taisei Yasunaga each collected 2 hits for Warren County. Cole Estes, Colby Elkins and Rogers all had 1 hit apiece.
The Pioneers are scheduled to play host to Coffee County on Thursday. Game time is 5 p.m.
