Dragons break out late for win over Corry

CORRY – Tanner Teconchuk’s three-run triple in the top of the sixth broke a 1-1 tie in Warren’s 6-1 Region 7-opening win over Corry on Wednesday.

“We came up with a couple clutch hits and played good defense,” said Warren coach Rick Eaton, whose Dragons are 2-1 overall and 1-0 in region.

Up 1-0, Corry loaded the bases and scored a run on a base hit to right in the bottom of the fifth, but right-fielder Ryan Gustafson fired to cutoff Jason Stanton and then Stanton to catcher Todd Fasenmyer to throw the runner out trying to score from second.

Tied at 1-1, Stanton singled in the sixth and Gustafson doubled him to third before Matt Hultquist walked to load the bases. Teconchuk tripled all three home to break open the scoring.

In the bottom half, a 6-4-3 double play from Tanner Stanz to Collin Fantaskey to Stanton ended a jam. Then Warren scored twice more in the seventh on a sac fly from Stanz and Stanton single.

Stanton finished 2-for-4, Teconchuk 2-for-3, and Gustafson 2-for-2 with two doubles and two runs.

Stanz started and struck out six over five innings, allowing one run. He only got into trouble in the sixth, walking two and hitting a batter. Teconchuk finished the game out for the save.

“It’s cold out, but we’re (outside),” said Eaton. “It’s the beginning of a stretch.”

Warren plays four home games in the next five days, starting with hosting General McLane on Thursday at Old Legion Field.

Seth Baldensperger had three hits and four RBI and Jimmy Vile three hits and four runs scored in Warren’s 17-2 junior varsity win.
