Warner Strikes Out Nine in Shutout

Senior starting pitcher Anthony Warner threw a complete game shutout to lead the Leopards. He threw seven innings, surrendered just four hits, and struck out nine en rout to his team leading fifth victory of the season.

Warner faced his biggest threat in the fifth inning when the Quakers put two runners on with just one out. The inning turned on Salem quickly as Warner picked off left fielder Brock Young at first for the second out of the inning and then struck out second baseman Lance Bailey swinging on the next pitch to end the frame.

Salem later threatened again in the seventh when designated hitter Corey Riesen hit a two-out double to right field. But Warner would preserve the shutout a batter later when he struck out third baseman Hunter Carlisle to end the game.

Warner retired the side in order in four of the seven innings he pitched for Louisville. He remains unbeaten on the mound this season improving his win-loss record to 5-0 for the year.
