WCMS takes first conference loss
Warren County Middle Schools Ty Martin heads to first after a hit this season. The Pioneers traveled to Franklin County North on Monday and were scheduled to play host to North on Tuesday, weather permitting.

Losing their first conference game this year, the Warren County Middle School baseball team fell to Franklin County North, 6-2, on the road Monday night.
“We did not have one of our best outings,” said WCMS coach Chad Young. “They capitalized on every mistake we made as a team. I am confident this will make us better and we will turn things around next week. I look forward to playing these guys again.”
The Pioneers (14-2, 10-1) struggled at the plate, getting only 2 runs off 5 hits. Each team scored a run in the first inning, leaving the game knotted 1-1 until the bottom of the fifth when North had a big inning scoring 4 runs on 3 hits, 3 walks, and 1 error.
In the first, Jace Brantley hit a double to left field and scored on a left-field single by Westen Wilson.  WCMS would score one more time in the top of the sixth as Ryland Holder reached on a centerfield error and scored on a Wyatt Wilson double to the right-field corner.
Omari Harris took the loss for Warren County throwing for 4 innings with 3 hits, 2 runs, 3 walks, and 7 strikeouts. Jace Brantley entered for middle relief, pitching .3 of an inning allowing 1 hit, 3 runs and 2 walks. Ryland Holder closed with 2.3 innings pitched with 2 hits, 1 run and 4 walks.
Hit leaders for WCMS were Ben Rivers 2-for-3, Jace Brantley 1-for-2, with 1 run scored, Westen Wilson 1-for-2, 1 RBI and Wyatt Wilson 1-for-3 and 1 RBI.
The Pioneers were scheduled to play host to Franklin North on Tuesday night, weather permitting, for a rematch.
