GLASGOW — The Barren County High School Trojans could manage only three hits Monday in a 3-1 baseball victory over Warren Central.

The Trojans’ hits came from  Andy Highbaugh, Britt Crabtree and Bryton McGuire.

“Our pitching has been pretty solid. We’ve had to use some guys that we didn’t figure into the equation and they’ve thrown strikes for us,” said BCHS coach Johnny Vance. “We just didn’t hit it very well today.”

Cole Payne got the start on the mound for the Trojans and he was relieved by Hunter Carroll.

Barren County will host Metcalfe County on Tuesday night before visiting South Warren on Wednesday.

The Trojans will then host a four-team tournament on Friday and Saturday with Adair County, Lexington Lafayette and Portland (Tenn.)
