The Winters High School varsity baseball club had a dogfight against the visiting Dixon High School Rams on Tuesday, March 7. Although the cold weather was finger-numbing, both teams’ bats were hot.
Dixon came out swinging scoring one run in the first inning, but the Warriors quickly responded with four of their own and then another in the second inning.
The Rams managed to put up two more runs in the fourth inning. In the bottom half of the fourth, the Warriors had the bases loaded but were unable to fully capitalize but were still able to salvage a run.
Things got dicey in the fifth inning as Dixon piggybacked off a few Warrior errors to score three runs and tie the game going into the sixth inning.
The Rams put in a new pitcher who thought he’d control the pace of the game with long, arduous pauses in between pitches. Unfortunately for Dixon, the waiting proved fruitless as the Warriors rattled off two more.
Heading into the seventh inning, the Warriors amped up the pace of the game and only allowed the Rams to score one more run. When the dust settled, the Warriors took an 8–7 win over the Rams and sent them back to Dixon.
