After starting the season 9-1, including a first-game win over rival Menchville, the Raiders have lost 3 of their last 5 and are now 10-4, 8-4 PD. Coach Barker's boys dropped both of their games to District-leading Woodside, lost 13-3 to Menchville, and lost a one-run game to Denbigh. With 6 games left in Peninsula District play, the Raiders are in a 3-way tie for 3rd behind Woodside and Menchville.
Unfortunately, the Raiders will be without standout Brandon Delk for the rest of the season. Delk, a closer/shortstop and Warwick's best hitter, partially tore a ligament in his pitching elbow during the Bethel game. Dave Johnson's story about the injury can be found here.
Luckily, Coach Barker still has catcher Ben Delgado, who was featured in an article in Sunday's Daily Press, and Longwood-signee and pitcher Brandon Vick.
