CORINTH - North Warren seemed to discover its DNA for baseball prowess Monday as the team mounted a total-team effort to overpower Corinth 13-2.
On the defensive side, Greg Dower pitched all seven innings and allowed only four hits, while Cougar batters rallied for 18 hits, by far their best slugging this season.

"Greg pitched a real nice game through seven innings," he said. "and our defense finally made consistent plays."
Jeff Bennett led the offense by driving in three runs with his three hits.
Kristian Seeley's two-run single was among the standout efforts in an eight-run third inning. Curtis Breuer was 2 for 3 at bat overall, and Travis Monroe slugged a double.
Humiston said the win was a good omen for the rest of the year.
"We've been struggling all season, and now the guys played baseball the way it's supposed to be played," he said. "Our team needed this."
