Warren East junior third baseman Drake Young got the offense rolling in Tuesday’s 13-5 win over South Warren on Tuesday at South Warren High School.
Young delivered a bases-clearing, three-run double in the first inning as Warren East took a lead it would never surrender in the district opener for the Raiders.
He finished with two doubles, with his three RBIs giving Young the team lead on the season with 13.
“I just wanted to make it safe for the pitchers – make them more comfortable on the mound,” Young said. “I saw that (he threw) four straight balls to Colton Edwards in the previous at-bat, so I was expecting first pitch fastball and that was what happened.”
