Jets secure second place in District 6AAA

CROSSVILLE — Matt Ledbetter and Morgan Richards combined for a four-hit shutout to beat White County 2-0 to claim second place in District 6AAA.

The win improved the Jets' mark to  9-5 in the district behind Cookeville (11-3), which beat SMHS (5-9) 15-3 on Panther Field Tuesday. Both Cookeville and CCHS will host the first game of a best of three series Monday, while the Jets made up a game at White County Thursday, and Cookeville hosted SMHS Thursday in a make-up game. Warren County (7-8) split a double-header with Rhea County (5-10) Wednesday night.. The two play-in games — No. 5 SMHS  at No. 4 White County and No. 6 Rhea County at No. 3 Warren County — will be played Saturday at 2 p.m.

The Rhea County-Warren County winner plays at No. 2 CCHS Monday at 5:30 p.m. while the SMHS-White County winner plays at No. 1 Cookeville, also Monday at 5:30 p.m.

Ledbetter pitched the first six innings Tuesday, allowing four hits with 11 strikeouts and two walks, while RIchards earned a save despite allowing one hit in the seventh inning.

Richards and Nathaniel Wyatt poked two hits each, while Grant Parrett, Ledbetter, Reed Shaw and Ethan Cunningham each stroked one hit.

Joseph Stockton and Dustin Cole each had two hits for the Warriors (6-8), while Cole was the losing pitcher, allowing two unearned runs on eight hits with two strikeouts.

Ledbetter allowed a first inning single to Stockton and a second inning single to Dustin Cole, but all six outs were via strikeout.

After the single to Dustin Cole, he retired the next 10 Warriors in order, before loading the bases on two walks and error, but Blake Lynn grounded to Wyatt who throw to Ryan Burgess covering second to get Lynn. Burgess threw to Shaw at first base to complete the double play.

Stockton led off the sixth with a single. With one out, Jalen Foster grounded to Burgess, who stepped on the bag at second to force Stockton and threw to Shaw to get Foster to complete the double play.

Dustin Cole led off the seventh with a single, but Austin Glenn lined out to Wyatt who threw back to Shaw to get pinch runner Samuel Hillis, who had left first on contact. Richards struck out Roberts to end the game.

Dustin Cole allowed a one out single to Parrett, but gave up the first unearned run in the bottom of the second on two out singles to Cunningham and Richards and an error.

The second unearned run came in the bottom of the third on singles by Ledbetter and Wyatt and an error for the 2-0 lead.

Dustin Cole then retired the next six Jets, before allowing two out singles to Shaw and Wyatt, but got a force out to end the fifth. He allowed a two out single to Richards in the sixth.

  • The truth about driver distance

    Most golfers would like to hit the ball further off the tee with the driver.  Distance may not be as important as accuracy off the tee, but it is very valuable. Longer, straighter drives make the game easier.
