Baseball: Three Portsmouth Runs In 5th Doom Cavaliers
The baseball team got off to a great start, getting two runs in the first inning. But a 3 run 5th inning propelled Portsmouth to a 5-3 win over the Cavaliers. Freshman Jalen Miscule went 2-3 at the plate. On the mound Nolan Taylor, another freshman, went the distance striking out 3 Trojan batters. This was the Cavaliers first game since Saturday, and coach Marty Dunn says that it's hard to develop consistency when numerous games are postponed due to the weather.

Softball: Cavs Come Back From Layoff With 12-2 Win
The softball team came out rusty after the layoff, but quickly came around defeated Portsmouth 12-2 in 5 innings.

Cavs Friday (4-8) Recap
Friday 04-08-2011 10:08pm ET
Softball: Warren Defeats Chillicothe In 12 Innings
It took 12 innings for Warren to defeat the Chillicothe Cavaliers 12-10 Friday. The game started off great for the Lady Cavaliers as they took 8-3 lead through 4 innings. Warren came back in a big way, scoring 6 unanswered to take a 9-8 lead into the bottom of the 7th. A Cavalier run in the 7th forced extra innings with the score tied 9-9. Both teams were unable to produce a run in the first 3 extra innings, then traded a run each in the 11th. Warren was then able to get two run in the 12th and held Chillicothe in check in the bottom half of the inning to improve to 6-0 on the year. Cavs coach Greg Phillips says his team hit well at the plate tonight. It just defensive miscues that kept the Cavaliers from beating a very good Warren ball club, as 8 of their 12 runs were unearned. Before Friday's game, Warren only went past the 5th inning one time in their first 5 games. For Chillicothe, Marissa Webb went 4-6 at the plate. Rylie Boullion went the distance on the mound, striking out 3 and giving up 4 runs. The Cavs fall to 3-3 on the year, and will travel to Washington Court House for a double header on Saturday afternoon.
Baseball: Tough Night For The Cavaliers
Warren not only has a great softball team, but also on the baseball diamond. They proved it on Friday as they defeated Chillicothe 17-0 in 5 innings. The Warriors gave up on 3 hits on the night. A bright spot for the Cavaliers was the hitting of Shawn Jackson, as he went 2 for 2 on the night. The Cavaliers will be right back at it tomorrow as they travel to Westfall to take on the defending SVC Champions in a double header. The Mustangs edged Zane Trace 4-3 on Friday.

Rylie Boullion gets the win for the Lady Cavs. Chillicothe improves to 3-2 on the year and will host Warren Friday.Click Here
