Placeholder Image
Take the last two year’s win totals for the Warren County High School baseball team and combine them and it would only match the success the Pioneers have enjoyed this season.Warren County won its 15th game Thursday night, beating the Upperman Bees 7-3 on the road.Last year, the Pioneers won only 10 games, which doubled the total from 2010. This season, under first-year head coach Adam Childs, the Pioneers are nearly to the win total from the last three years combined.The senior class entered the season with only 17 wins to their credit, but the 12 Pioneers have seen the wins come in bunches this year.Thursday was the Pioneers fourth win in their last five games and their second win over the Bees in a seven-day span.Warren County beat Upperman 4-0 April 13 when Kyle Rutledge threw a two-hit shutout. Rutledge was again the winning pitcher against the Bees as the junior threw five innings and allowed two runs on four hits while striking out three.Warren County gave Rutledge the lead to play with in the third inning.
