Ethan Stephens’ personal best also provided a big moment for the Warren Central baseball team overall.

Stephens pitched a complete game Monday to give the Dragons a 7-1 victory over Warren East in the District 14 Tournament. The win snapped a 38-game losing streak to district opponents dating back to 2016.

There was self-redemption for Stephens, too. The WCHS senior thought his season was done with a fractured finger on his throwing hand, but rehab allowed him to return two weeks before his start in the tournament.

The right-handed pitcher tossed 91 times for three strikeouts and allowed just four hits.

“I told coach before the game I wanted this moment,” Stephens said. “I knew if he gave me the moment, I was going to go out there and give it my all.”

Warren Central finished the regular season 9-21.
