WARRENTON — The Warrenton Junior Baseball summer team went 1-2 in a three-game series with Kennedy over the weekend, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Huddleston Field.

In Friday’s first game, Kennedy scored seven runs over the first two innings, and took advantage of six Warrenton errors.

Dalton Knight and Austin Little had two hits apiece for the Warriors, who bounced back with a 5-1 victory Saturday morning.

Knight recorded the win on the mound, allowing four hits with seven strikeouts, while the Warriors had seven hits of their own.

Kennedy won Sunday’s game, 7-2.

“The big thing for us is that we played error-free defense in the second and third games,” said Warrenton coach Lennie Wolfe. “We’re improving — we’re just paying our dues right now at the plate. (Saturday’s game) looked like a return to Warrenton baseball — bunts, small ball and running the bases.”

Knight had five hits in the three games, while Duane Falls hit safely in each game. Jake Morrow returned to the lineup and had a double for Warrenton, which is scheduled to host a doubleheader with Seaside, 4 p.m. Thursday.

The Warriors will also host their fifth annual Alumni Game, July 1 at Huddleston Field.

At least 40 former Warriors will be taking part. The day will feature raffles and a Home Run Derby sponsored by Fultano’s, with action starting at noon.
