DUBOIS — North Knox trailed Northeast Dubois for four innings before the the Warriors went off for nine runs in the fifth, and they never let up in steamrolling the Class A honorable mention Jeeps, 15-3, for a Blue Chip Conference baseball win Monday.

Kale Jones was the winning pitcher for North Knox (9-6, 2-1 Blue Chip). He pitched all seven innings, letting up three unearned runs on four hits and three walks with five strikeouts.

Jones also paced the offense, going 3-for-5 with two RBIs. Cole Jones was 2-for-5 with a double, three runs, one RBI; Will Sloan two hits, two RBIs; Rhett Sheren single, three RBIs, two runs; Brayden Thorne and Holtman Doades single, RBI; Reece Hammelman single, two runs; Zach Boyles two runs; and Mason Lyons three RBIs.

“Kale Jones threw a complete game, and that's what we needed to save some of our pitchers' arms,” North Knox coach Paul Jones said. “The bats came around in the fifth. The defense did a good job behind Kale for the most part. This is a big conference win on the road, and some of our players that had been struggling at the plate made some good contact.”

Dubois (8-5, 2-2) plated two in the first but didn't score again until the final inning. North Knox made it a 2-1 deficit in the fourth, and the big fifth put the Warriors in front 10-2. North Knox tacked on one in the sixth and four in the seventh.

North Knox hosts North Daviess at 5 p.m. Tuesday and entertains Wood Memorial at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.
