Staying’ alive — in exciting fashion.

Trailing 3-2, Aaron Shene sprinted all the way around the bases on a line drive to right-center field in the bottom of the fourth inning. It was scored an RBI triple, scoring on a throwing error to give Warren’s Boys Majors a 4-3 Little League all-star lead and eventual win over Brookville on Thursday at Betts-Jackson Field.

It wasn’t the only play that raised heart rates. Trailing 3-1 in the third, Warren’s Broc Bryan crushed a ball over the left-field fence for a two-run home run to tie the game. Upon further inspection, it was ruled to have gone over the left-fielder’s glove but under the fence for a ground-rule double. Wes Wilcox would knock in one on a single, but Warren still trailed.

That is until Wyatt Wilson walked and Shene’s liner scored two for the lead.

In the top of the fifth, Brookville got a runner all the way to third base with one out, but he was ruled to have missed touching second base on appeal.

Bryan struck out the final batter with two-on and two-out in the sixth to secure the win. Tanner Stuart started and pitched four innings and Bryan relieved him for the win.

Wilcox finished 2-for-3 in the win for Warren (2-1), which next hosts Kane at 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 6, at Betts-Jackson Field.
