Jacks Drop A Tough One To Junction City

Warren's Treylon Burks slides in to extend an early lead for the Jacks Thursday afternoon.
As cloudy skies hovered above on Thursday, March 9, 2017, the Warren Lumberjacks dropped a non-conference matchup vs. Junction City by the score of 9-6 at home in Warren.

Junior Luke Gorman got the start on the hill for the Orange and Black.  He pitched 3 and 2/3 innings and surrendered 6 hits and 5 runs, 2 of which were earned.

Sophomore Centerfielder Treylon Burks led the Lumberjacks at the plate, going 2 for 2.  Burks scored one run in the third inning on a passed ball.  He also walked twice.

Junior Leighton Curry went 1-2 at the plate and knocked in 1 RBI.  Sophomore Cade Reep and Junior Logan Smith also each had an RBI a piece.

Warren Sophomore Kendall Pope, who started the game at third base, came in and pitched 3 and 1/3 innings in relief.  He gave up 7 hits and 4 runs.  Only 2 were earned.

This loss brings the Lumberjacks record for the 2017 season so far to 0-4(0-0 in conference play).  They next face Shiloh Christian on Saturday in the Billy Bock Classic in Pine Bluff, Arkansas.

Editor's note:  This is a young baseball team folks.  They've shown clear improvement.  Come out and support these kids each week.  It's baseball time in Warren!  Come on out to the park, bring the whole family, grab one of the famous Renious Harton Burgers, and enjoy a good ballgame!
