Warren gets 1000th as Cougars sweep in walk-off fashion
The joy of sweeping a conference doubleheader quickly turned to the celebration of a milestone as the Barton Community College baseball team swept Pratt Community College 9-8 and 11-10 Saturday at Lawson-Biggs Field. The Cougars won both contests in walk-off fashion, winning game one with a Caleb Cherryholmes bases loaded walk and winning game two as freshman Trevor Turner blasted a deep center bases loaded single to set off a series of celebrations on the field. As the Cougars chased and mobbed Turner behind first base, Barton Head Coach was congratulated by Assistant Coach Roger Ward as the victory marked the 1000th of Warren's coaching career. The mob of happy Cougars then quickly turned towards Warren, eventually catching and dowsing the 30th year Barton skipper with ice cold water. Having won No. 900 at Barton on Wednesday, Warren reaches the 1000 feat with one game left in the 2014 regular season as the teams will play the series finale at 1:00 p.m. on Sunday. The 31-23-1 Cougars improve to 14-17 in the conference while dropping Pratt to 20-33 on the season and 7-24 in the Jayhawk.
