It was a historic event for head coach Julian Crews on Monday at Happy Valley. Five of his pitchers combined to walk 18 batters in their 13-7 loss at Cannon-Gouge Park.
The Warriors outhit Johnson County 8-4.
Troy Arnold had a pair of base hits to lead the Longhorns. Jayden Joiner and Gavin Reece had the other two.
Lane Kyte and Bryce Carter had a pair of hits each for Happy Valley.
We had five different pitchers walk 18 batters, said Crews. That pretty much says it all. Ive been doing this for a long time and Ive never seen anything like it. Thats like every batter in their lineup walking at least two times. We never gave ourselves a chance to win.
