CCHS falls 10-2 to White County in 6AAA action

CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland County Jet baseball team ended the season on a sour note, losing 10-2 to the fourth-seeded White County Warriors in the District 6AAA Tournament at Jet Park Monday night.

The game was originally rained out Saturday and Sunday, and moved to Jet Park because the White County field was unplayable. Jet coaches Dave Prichard and Kyle Cokkinias worked all day Monday getting the field ready for the 6:30 p.m. start.

White County plays Cookeville in a best two out of three series, with the winner playing the winner of the Warren County-Coffee County series for the championship.

Despite playing at home, the Jets were the visiting team on the scoreboard and scored once in the top of the first inning. Ryan Burgess singled to open the game, and then senior Tayler Houston ripped a double to center field; however, the umpires called a balk on White County pitcher Darin Cole, sending Houston back to home plate and Burgess to second base. Houston then struck out.

Ledbetter walked, and Ethan Cunningham ripped a two-out RBI single.

The momentum changed after the balk call.

White County scored five unearned runs in the bottom of the first on an error, a hitbatsman, a passed ball, a stolen base, a two-run single by Adam Farley, two walks and a basesloaded double by Tyler Lafever.

Darin Cole retired 12 of the next 14 Jets. Dylan Fehr reached on a two-out error in the second, and Houston walked and stole second in the third.

Meanwhile, Ledbetter retired seven of the next 10 Warriors, only allowing a two-out walk in the second and a one out single in the fourth inning to Kane Young.

White County stretched the lead to 6-1 in the bottom of the fifth on three walks, a stolen base and singles by Farley and Jake Young off Ledbetter and reliever Morgan Richards. Houston retired Lafever to end the uprising.

CCHS sliced the lead to 6-2 with a solo run in the top of the sixth on a single by Ledbetter, two walks, a groundout and a sacrifice fly by Nathaniel Wyatt.

Jalen Foster's two-out grandslam homer in the bottom of the sixth, after a hitbatsman and two walks, made it 10-2.

Cole retired the Jets in order in the top of the seventh to end the game.

Ledbetter, Richards and Houston allowed 10 runs on eight hits with five Ks and six walks. Ledbetter was the losing hurler.

Burgess, Ledbetter and Cunningham had the only Jet hits.
