Sellers, Sullivan combine for shutout
Warren County won its third consecutive game Thursday at home against Southern Vance. The 5-0 win pushed the Eagles’ record to 4-4 overall and 2-2 in the 2-A Northern Carolina Conference.
Southern dropped to 0-3 in the league and was held to two hits by Warren County starter Darian Sellers, who worked five innings. Sellers struck out five Raiders before Hayden Sullivan came on for the final two innings.
Trey Martin knocked in the go-ahead run in the second inning before Warren County added another in the third and three more in the sixth.
“We’re finally getting some hits with runners in scoring position,” said Eagles coach Randy Martin.
Sellers was 2-for-3 and Sullivan, Pete Johnson, Tyler Thompson, and Antonio Thompson each added hits.
Warren County posted consecutive wins on Monday and Tuesday over Pymatuning Valley High School, a team from northern Ohio travelling south to play games on its spring break.
Hayden Harriss, David Adcock, Dustin Brummitt, Matthew Perkins, and Logan Waite each had hits for Southern.
Raiders head coach Eric Faucette said his team agreed it didn’t play with much life on Thursday.
“If we put our heads back in the game and dedicate ourselves to do whatever it takes to be successful, we can still turn this season around,” said Faucette.
Southern hosts N.C. School of Science and Math on Tuesday while Warren County visits South Granville.
