WC baseball thumps Raymond

Published 9:28 am Friday, April 7, 2017

Grayson Shealy allowed one hit in five innings in his first varsity pitching start, D.J. Lewis had three hits and drove in three runs, and Warren Central’s baseball team routed Raymond 16-3 Thursday night for its fourth consecutive victory.

The Vikings scored multiple runs in five of the last six innings, but needed the full seven to finish off the Rangers. They led 12-3 through six innings and then tacked on four runs in the seventh.

“We added all night. We just let them hang around. Shealy pitched extremely well. We didn’t show up defensively,” said Warren Central coach Conner Douglas, whose team committed seven errors.

Shealy gave up two runs, but neither was earned. He walked one batter and struck out seven before giving way to Landon Stewart, who finished up with two scoreless innings.

Logan Stewart went 3-for-3 with two RBIs and three runs scored. Caleb Sterling had two hits and scored twice, and Colton Norris had two RBIs.

Catcher Tyler McRight reached base five times, on two walks, two singles and an error. He had one RBI, and his courtesy runner Shakee Shaw scored five runs.

Warren Central will host Greenville Friday at 7 p.m., and then play at Madison Central Saturday at noon.
