Jets lose district home-and-home series

CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland County High School Jet baseball team fell to 7-18-1 overall and 2-8 in District 6AAA, after dropping the home-and-home series with Warren County this week.

CCHS lost 3-1 Tuesday night to the Pioneers and 4-2 Monday at McMinnville.

Warren County 3, CCHS 1: Matt Ledbetter was the losing pitcher, allowing three runs on eight hits with eight strikeouts and one walk, while Tayler Houston, Ethan Cunningham, Cameron O'Rourke and Bobby Uebelacker each poked one hit.

Kyle Rutledge and John Reed each had two hits for the Pioneers.

Warren County two runs in the second inning on a walk, an error, an RBI single by Rutledge, a double by Reed and an RBI single by Dalton Foster.

With two out in the top of the six, the Pioneers plated an insurance run on back-to-back singles by Mitchell Steiner and Rutledge, and an RBI double by Reed.

The Jet defense prevented another run from scoring in the second, when Logan Underhill flied out to Burgess in right, who then threw to first baseman Dylan Fehr who threw Uebelacker who tagged out Reed at the plate, attempting to score from third.

After allowing the two second inning runs, Ledbetter allowed two baserunners in the third, before retiring the next nine Pioneers, who added that lone insurance run in the sixth. Ledbetter hit one batter in the seventh.

Pioneer starting pitcher Tristen Smith walked Ryan Burgess to open the game and then retired the next 10 Jets in order, before giving up a one-out single to Houston in the fourth and a two-out single to Cunningham in the fourth inning.

He then retired the next four Jets, before leaving the game in the bottom of the sixth.

CCHS scored once in the bottom of the sixth, as Ledbetter walked, stole second, moved to third on a ground out and scored on a balk to make the score 3-1.

The Jets put the tying runs on in the bottom of the seventh on back-to-back, two out singles by O'Rourke and Uebelacker.

Warren County 4, CCHS 2: The Pioneers scored two runs in the first and two runs in the second with the help of three Jet errors. CCHS scored two runs in the top of the sixth inning for the final score.

Houston was the losing pitcher, allowing four runs, three of which were earned, seven hits with two walks and one strikeout. Burgess was two for three, while Houston was one for three with an RBI. Cunningham was also one for three.

Schedule: The Jets traveled to Upperman Thursday and will host York tonight for senior night. Seniors Aaron Jones, Bobby Uebelacker, Dylan Fehr, Tayler Houston and Cameron O'Rourke will be recognized before the game with the Dragons.
