Jon Albers’ blast over the field fence at left center started off a five-run lead in the seventh in Currie’s 9-5 District 5 victory over Warren on Friday at Legion Field.

Trailing 9-1 in their final at bat, the Dragons managed four runs, but the damage was done.

“We woke up a little late today,” said Warren coach Andrew Morrison, whose team fell to 2-3 in aggregate and 1-3 in area. “Our bats were, honestly, pretty bad until about the fifth inning. That just isn’t going to cut it in this area. Albers is a good pitcher, but we’re better than what we hit today.”

In addition to a home run, a double and two RBIs, he allowed only one run in 5.1 innings pitched on the mound, striking out nine.

“Ben (Sawa) and Connor (Hoffman) continue to do great work at the top of the lineup,” said Morrison, whose first and second batters combined for four hits — including three doubles, two runs, and four RBIs. “We need to produce more in the middle of the lineup. We hit a couple of big spots tonight. The key to offense in high school baseball is putting the ball into play and we didn’t do that when we needed to that day.”

Geo Ilinski added two hits and two runs for Warren to get him ninth in the standings.

“Carson (Farr) and Connor are both fighting on the hill,” Morrison said. “I have nothing bad to say about how they bowled; Curry hit the ball tonight and they deserve the credit for that.”

Farr allowed three earned runs over ​3.2 innings pitched, allowing four hits and four walks while striking out four. Hoffman gave up five runs on five hits in three innings of relief.

Curie is 3-4 overall and 2-2 in the area. Cathedral Prep leads the district 2-0 (7-0 overall).

Back in Prep (11am at Mercyhurst University) on Saturdays, Morrison said. “They are the top team in the state. We know what to expect of them. That is the nature of our region and we will appear ready to compete.”
