A cold, breezy evening at Legion Field seemed to have absolutely no effect on Warren’s starting pitcher Jacob Sealey.

The right sophomore went the distance allowing only three hits and a run as the Warriors completed the season in sweeping the Marietta Tigers with a 5-1 victory in Twin States League play.

Seeley also helped himself at bat collecting a pair of hits as Warren sent the Tigers to a seventh straight loss and kept alive their hopes of claiming a share of the conference title.

“Jacob (Sele) was really good tonight and made it look easy when he was able to drive the area like he did,” said Warren coach Chad Porter. “He was able to throw many strikeout pitches, outplayed players and gave us exactly what we needed on Monday before a big week ahead of us.”

Warren got to the board in the opening frame off Marietta as bowler Cooper Le Mans started.

The Warriors damaged it twice as first baseman Ethan Hulbert was hit by a pitch and moved to second on a wild ground before scoring on a base hit by Trent Taylor.

Laumann was a tough guy all season for the Tigers as he entered the game sporting an earned run average of less than 3.00 but only one win to his credit.

Left-handed Tiger had a little more trouble in the top of third as the Warriors pushed a few runs across the plate.

Seely started the inning with a single and moved to second when Lohmann’s throw passed the first baseman and entered foul territory.

One of them later drew a walk Holbert and both runners moved into scoring position when Taylor jumped one into center field.

Gavin Keats made a hard run and catcher Brandon Klein hit a Lowmann pitch to force another walk and give the Warriors a 3-0 lead.

Seely was nothing short of stellar early on retiring the first 10 Tiger hitters he faced before third baseman Cam Joyler singled with one out in the fourth inning.

Le Mans sent Joler to third when he scored the gap at right center field and Isaac Knighten slotted in with a fielder’s pick to cut the Warrior’s lead to 3-1.

Seely retired the final batter of the inning to avoid further damage.

The Warriors added a pair of insurance runs in the top of the sixth.

Andrew Rauch started the first period when he blasted a single, and after Gavin Welsh pushed him into scoring position, Seely brought him in with a power single to center.

One out later Hulbert lined one up to center to score Seely and give the Warriors a 5-1 lead.

These extra drills would be more than enough for Sly as he was only allowed one fifth entry the rest of the way.

Seely fanned six batters and walked no batters for the win while Le Mans fanned eight and allowed eight batters for the loss,

Marietta is down to 2-11 overall but Coach Josh McKittrick feels like they are starting to play better baseball as the second part of the season begins.

“Overall, I really feel like we are making great strides and making improvements,” said Marietta coach Josh McKittrick. “We’re trying to get to the point in the second half of the season where we’re playing well going into championship time.”

The win was big for the Warriors and keeps their hopes of a share of the conference title alive when they take on Fort Frey Thursday night needing a win to share the crown with the Cadets.

“I thought we smashed some at bats and ran the bases well and offense well and played clean baseball tonight,” he said. Porter said. “Thursday is a big day for TSL and also a big day for OVAC as well.”

Today the Warriors will travel to Caldwell while the Tigers remain home to host the Alexanders.
