WCMS baseball collects pair of wins

On the road for two games, the WCMS Pioneers baseball team took two more wins this past weekend. Friday’s matchup at Harris Middle School found the Pioneers taking home a 13-1 victory. Saturday’s visit to Murfreesboro found Warren County’s big bats dominating with a 15-2 win over Whitworth-Buchanan.

The Pioneers (3-0, 2-0) run ruled the Eagles for the second time this season after a big 7-run inning in the top of the fifth added to the 6 runs scored up to that point.
Warren County ran through the lineup, as poor pitching by the Eagles led to a bases-loaded situation with the first three at-bats in the fifth. Wyatt Wilson was beaned by the ball next to drive in a run and Jace Brantley got a base on balls for the next up, scoring another run. Two big hits to left field, first by Westen Wilson then by Braden Bottoms, drove in three more runs and a hit to right by Ty Martin scored two more.
Bottoms got the win on the mound for the Pioneers with 7 strikeouts facing 18 batters and giving up only 2 hits and 1 run.
Scoring for Warren County were Omari Harris, Wyatt Wilson, Brantley and Bottoms all with 2 runs and Westen Wilson, Kason Holder, Martin, Alec Hobbs and John Garrett all scored 1 run apiece.
Hit leaders for the game included Ty Martin 3 hits, Braden Bottoms 3 hits, Westen Wilson 2 hits, 3 RBIs. WCMS amassed 13 runs on 11 hits.
“We have had a tough schedule playing four games in one week, especially this being our first week of games,” said WCMS coach Chad Young. “With a change in the pitching rules, we have had to ask a lot from our pitching rotation each game to be ready to contribute. Our pitching staff has been ready and turned out a top performance during each outing. Our hitting is improving and we are beginning to see a solid performance throughout the batting lineup. We continue to have some tough games coming up and look forward to seeing our team in that type of competition.”
