ALMEDIA -- Warrior Run committed only two errors against Central Columbia in Tuesday's Heartland-II matchup, but they came at the least opportune time.
Both of the Defenders' miscues came in the bottom of the seventh inning to allow the Blue Jays to score two runs for a 3-2 victory.
Central (9-1, 8-1 HAC-II), which also out-hit Warrior Run, 8-4, scored its first run on a wild pitch in the fourth.
Jackie Clemens and Cara Rishel each had a pair of hits to lead the Defenders (9-2, 7-2).
