Panthers lose to Rhea County, Sequoyah

CROSSVILLE — The Stone Memorial Panther baseball team dropped a pair of non-district home games last week, losing to 11-6 to Rhea County Friday night and Sequoyah 6-3 last Thursday evening.

Rhea County 11, SMHS 6: Rayne Bennett took the mound for the Panthers Friday night and held the visitors scoreless for three innings. Reliever Clay Wilson entered in the fourth inning.

Stone led 3-0 until the fourth, when the visitors posted three runs in their half of the inning to tie the game. The Panthers battled back in the bottom of the inning to go ahead 6-3. The Eagles added five runs in the fifth, scored one run in the sixth and two runs in the seventh to take an 11-6 lead. 

SMHS was unable to plate any additional runs for an 11-6 final. 

Panther offense included a triple by Jason Moldenhauer, a double by Sawyer Casey and singles by Luke Matthews and A.J. Tarallo. 

Eagle pitching only gave up two walks in the contest, with both going to Nathan Greene.

Sequoyah 6, SMHS 3: Luke Matthews took his first turn on the mound this season and was relieved by Austin Robertson in the top of the third in the Panthers 6-3 loss. 

Sequoyah took an early lead in the first, scoring one unearned run. They picked up two more runs on two hits in the second, and a third unearned run on a walk and a double in the third. The Chiefs added runs in the fifth and the seventh innings.

SMHS offense finally manufactured three runs in the sixth inning as Jason Moldenhauer led off with a walk, advanced to third on a Luke Matthews' single, and scored on Nathan Greene's single. Matthews scored on a Austin Helton hit, and Greene was brought home on a perfect sacrifice bunt laid down by John Martin.

Chris Cox led off the seventh with a hit and would advance to second on a balk. Moldenhauer advanced Cox to third on a sacrifice fly, but the inning would end before he could cross the plate.

Cox led the Panther offense going three for three, followed by Helton's two hits, and Matthews and Greene's singles.

Schedule: Due to incoming inclement weather, Monday's away contest has been moved to Wednesday at Loudon County. The Panthers will host the Loudon Redskins at home on Tuesday night.
