Panthers lose at White County in 6AAA Tourney

CROSSVILLE — The White County Warriors scored seven runs in the first two innings en route to a 9-3 victory over the SMHS Panthers in the play-in game of the District 6AAA baseball tournament Saturday afternoon in Sparta.

The win moved the Warriors into the best two out of three series with  Cookeville Monday-Wednesday.

Brian Frye reached on a error to open the game for SMHS, but was thrown out at first base, after John Martin lined out to Warrior second baseman Jacob Fresh.

Southern Wesleyan signee Jason Moldenhauer was hit by a pitch and scored on Luke Matthews' two-out triple for a 1-0 lead.

Fresh opened the home half of the first with a single, but was forced out on a grounder by Jake Young, who advanced to second on a Panther throwing error. Dustin Cole singled home Young, who scored on a double by Jalen Foster for a 2-1 lead.

Panther coach Adam Kefauver was ejected from the game in the first inning after questioning a call at the plate. Assistant Coach Brenton Stokes coached the team the remainder of the game.

Warrior starter Ethan Roberts gave up a one-out single to Austin Robertson in the second inning.

White County ripped five straight hits — singles by Darin Cole, Fresh and Lynn and doubles by Joe Stockton and Tyler Qualls — and two one-out singles by Dustin Cole and Foster to produce the seven runs. Designated hitter Austin Glenn bounced into a Austin Helton-Mathews-Gabe Caballero double play to end the inning.

Roberts allowed one baserunner in each of the next three innings — a one-out single to Martin in the third. Robertson reached on a two-out error in the fourth, while Martin doubled in fifth and Moldenhauer was hit by a pitch in fifth.

Panther starter Clay Wilson allowed a one-out double in the third and gave up an unearned run in the bottom of the fifth on singles to Foster and Darin Cole, an error, a sacrifice fly by Stockton and a hitbatsman for an 8-1 lead.

Ian Temple relieved Roberts in the top of the sixth, allowing a two out single to Robertson, but got into trouble in the top of the seventh. After Helton reached on an error, followed by back-to-back hitbatsman, a groundout by Matthews, a walk and another hitbatsman to produce the Panthers' final two runs.

Andrew Sparks struck out Robertson to end the game.

Moldenhauer came on in the bottom of the sixth and allowed one run on a walk, two hitbatsman and a wild pitch for the 9-1 lead; however, Glenn bounced to Caballero who throw to Helton to get Foster who strayed away from second on Glenn's bouncer.

Leading hitters for the Panthers were Martin (two for three), Matthews (one for four with two RBIs) and Robertson (two for four).

Wilson was the losing pitcher, allowing eight runs on 12 hits with one strikeout, while Moldenhauer allowed one run with one K and one walk.
