Placeholder Image
So much for not being able to win close games. A year after struggling mightily in tight contests, the Warren County High School baseball team picked up a pair of one-run wins on its home field Friday night.The Pioneers got great pitching from Logan McCormack and Kyle Rutledge to beat White House 2-1, then the bats came out for Warren County in an 8-7 victory over Grundy County in the nightcap.Winning two one-run games, which improved the Pioneers to 5-0 overall, may not have been the craziest event Friday.With rain soaking Grundy County Thursday night, Warren County improbably became the host of the Grundy County tournament.The Pioneers got two home games, with one coming against Grundy County in its own tournament.The home crowd was treated to two great games, one a pitcher’s duel and another a slugfest.Against White House, the Pioneers got an inspired effort from McCormack for five innings and Rutledge came in to close the door in the final two.McCormack, a senior, and Rutledge combined to pitch a two-hitter and White House’s lone run was unearned.McCormack looked dominant from the very start as he struck out two batters to start the game. Control became an issue though.McCormack surrendered back-to-back walks, then hit a batter to load the bases.
