Whiteland was efficient at the plate and controlling on the mound Tuesday as the Warriors opened play in the Johnson County Baseball Tournament played at Center Grove with a 21-0 shutout of Edinburgh in five innings.
Senior center fielder Jared Adkins led off the bottom of the first inning with a sharp single to left field. He stole second, moved to third on a wild pitch and then scored on another wild pitch to put the Warriors on the scoreboard.
It would be the first of four first-inning runs for Whiteland.
