Alcoa traveled to SMHS Tuesday Night

CROSSVILLE — On a rainy and cool Tuesday night, the SMHS Panthers hosted the Alcoa Tornadoes in the regular season District 4AA finale, but the visitors took home a 5-2 victory. 

Both SMHS senior Brandon Cole and Nathan Waters pitched the entire seven innings.

Alcoa got off to a quick start as they posted three runs in the top of the first on three hits, a walk and a fielder's choice. 

SMHS loaded the bases in the bottom of the first inning on Cole's first hit, a walk to Jared Beaty and Nathan Green being plunked in the ribs to load the bases. Jared South singled to score Cole; however, Stone left three runners stranded to end the inning behind by two.

Both teams were held scoreless in the second, with Alcoa adding a run to their lead in the top of the third. 

Cole scored Stone's second run in the bottom of the sixth when he reached on an error by the second baseman. Beaty singled to left, with Greene reaching on a walk to again load the bases. South's second single plated Cole.

The Tornadoes posted their fifth run in the seventh on two singles and three walks. 

Sawyer Casey was hit by a pitch to lead off the bottom of the seventh, and advanced to third on John Martin's single. SMHS stranded runners on as the game ended.

The Panthers are in fifth place in District 4AA season at 2-6 behind Kingston (7-3), Alcoa (7-3), Loudon (6-4) and CAK (4-2). Scott County was sixth at 0-8.

SMHS travels to CAK Monday for a 4:30 p.m. game, and will conclude the district regular season Tuesday with a home game Tuesday. The district tournament is May 4-9.
