POTOMAC PARK — Jamison Warnick took a no-hitter into the sixth inning before settling for a one-hit shutout, leading Rush Services to a 7-0 win over RC’s Print Shop of Bedford in Hot Stove League baseball Monday evening at Hamilton Field.
Warnick, who needed only 69 pitches to get the complete-game win, struck out seven and did not walk a batter. He was also the game’s top hitter with three singles and a run batted in.
Chance Ritchie added a pair of singles for Rush Services, which led 4-0 after three innings.
Carl Foor had Bedford’s only hit, a single.
Rush Services, which had Friday’s home game against the Fort Ashby Lions canceled by rain, ended the regular season with a 12-3 record and will host the first game of a first-round playoff series on Monday, at Northern. Bedford will also be one of the eight teams in the postseason.
The playoff pairings and schedule have yet to be finalized.
Last week, Rush Services outlasted Caldwell Banker 15-9 in a game shortened to five innings by the league curfew.
Both teams scored five runs in the first inning and Rush added five more in the second to take the lead for good, 10-5.
Chance Ritchie was the big hitter, going 4 for 4 with two doubles, two singles and seven RBIs. Warnick hit a double and two singles, Mason Brenneman doubled and singled and Kellen Hinebaugh singled twice.
Brenneman, who came on in relief with the bases loaded in the first inning, got the win. He allowed three hits over five innings and struck out 10.
Dylan Ours had two singles for Caldwell Banker.
