Warriors Win Two, Fall in Championship

The Warriors went 2-1 on Sunday winning their first two games by a score of 23-1 before falling in the Championship 6-3.

In game one, the Warriors jumped out to an early lead on the Florence Red Wolves and captured a 15-1 victory on Sunday. Fifteen runs in the first three innings allowed the Warriors to put the game away early.

An error, a walk by Benjamin Lewis, an RBI-single by Nolan Alexander, and an error in the first inning supplied the early offense for Warriors.

Lewis led the way offensively racking up three RBI's on two hits for the Warriors.

Danny Prebeck got the win on the mound, allowing one run over four innings. He struck out six, walked three and surrendered three hits.

The Warriors added 11 more runs in the bottom of the third. A wild pitch scored Daniel Stanley for the inning's first run. Lewis, Prebeck, Dillon Pruett, Brandon Eldridge, and Caeden Graham all contributed RBI in the 11-run outburst.

In game two, Brandon Eldridge came up big at the plate and on the hill, leading the Warriors to an 8-0 win over Darlington Devils on Sunday.

Brandon racked up two RBI's on two hits. He singled in the first inning and doubled in the second inning.

Eldridge kept the Devils off the scoreboard for all four innings. He allowed just two hits while ringing up two.

Eight runs in the first three innings helped the Warriors blow out Darlington. An RBI-single by Blake Wall in the first inning and a three-run double by Eldridge and an RBI single by Caeden Graham during the second inning fueled the Warriors' offense early.

Game 2 Box Score
-------------------

In the Championship game, Eldridge again did his best to change the outcome, but couldn't will the Warriors past Coastal Crush as the Warriors lost 6-3 in six innings on Sunday.

The Crush's lineup had no answer for Eldridge as he held them hitless over the first two innings, allowed no earned runs, walked three and struck out two.

Caeden Graham came on in the third and pitched well for four innings, walked two, struck out one, and allowed five runs.

The Warriors jumped out to an early 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first. Daniel Stanley kicked things off for Warriors with a single. A stolen base then moved Daniel from first to second and he later came around to score on Caeden Graham’s RBI-groundout.

The Crush took the lead for good in the fourth inning on two runs.

After pushing across two runs in the bottom of the fifth, Warriors faced just a 5-3 deficit. An RBI-single by Landen Doyle and a wild pitch set off the Warriors rally. 

After allowing one run in the top of the sixth, the Warriors were able to get the tying run to the plate before lining into a game ending double play.
