Warriors keep pace atop Section One Baseball

Travis Reapsome recorded his fourth double-digit strikeout game of the season and the Warwick baseball team remained tied atop the Section One standings with a 6-0 whitewashing of Cedar Crest in Cornwall.
With three games remaining in the regular season, the Warriors (11-2 L-L, 13-4 overall) and Hempfield (11-2 L-L) are locked in a first-place tie in the Section One race.
Those two teams will meet next Monday in Lititz in their regular-season finale. Before then, Warwick played Manheim Township yesterday (Wednesday) and it will host McCaskey on Friday.
"They’re all key at this point," Warwick skipper Bob Locker said.
Putting a run up in the top of the first inning was key for Warwick, as Tyler Morris (4-for-4) got the first of his four hits, an RBI single, to give the Warriors a lead they never lost. Morris also slugged a solo blast in the fifth inning to help put the finishing touches on the Falcons.
"We talked a little bit ahead of time that we wanted to try to put a run or two on the board early," Locker said, "especially with Reapsome pitching today, because if you get him a couple runs, most days he will be OK."
Ultimately, Reapsome (4-1) finished with a complete-game four-hitter, striking out 10 while walking just one. In 33 innings this season, the junior lefty now has 56 K’s.
"As much as anything, they did not get good cuts at him," Locker said.
Reapsome helped his own cause with an RBI double, as Warwick pulled away with two in the second and two in the third.
Last Friday, Warwick scored three runs in the top of the ninth and defeated Penn Manor 4-1 in extra innings. Kyle Maguire stroked a key two-run single and Morris picked up the win with three innings of scoreless relief. Starter Caleb Metzler allowed just one earned run in 4 2/3 innings.
Last Wednesday, April 24, Cocalico scored two runs in the top of the sixth inning and held on to defeat Warwick 5-4 in a Section One-Two crossover in Lititz, earning their first league win of the season.
The Warriors took a 2-0 lead through two innings, and then after the Eagles pulled even in the top of the third, Warwick regained a 4-2 lead in the bottom of that frame. Morris was 2-for-4, including a home run and double, for the hosts.
But Cocalico made it a one-run game in the fourth and took a lead they never relinquished in the sixth inning. Adam Rohrbach suffered the loss in relief of Reapsome, who pitched three innings. Reapsome also hit a solo homer and Maguire had an RBI single.
