SMHS loses close game to Kingston at RSCC

CROSSVILLE — The Stone Memorial Panthers were dropped an 8-7, District 4AA decision to the Kingston Yellow Jackets Monday night at Roane State Community College.

Stone got out to an early lead in the top of the first when lead-off batter Austin Helton reached on a walk. Gabriel Caballero singled followed by back-to-back walks to Sawyer Casey and Nathan Greene to plate the first run. 

Kingston faced starting pitcher Austin Robertson, who allowed two runs on three hits, and one hit batsman with a strikeout. The two other outs were a pop-up to the catcher and runner tagged out at the plate..

SMHS rallied back in the second with Clay Wilson knocking a single to centerfield.  Helton reached on an error followed by back-to-back doubles by Luke Matthews and Jason Moldenhauer to score two runs.  Robertson shut down the side on a strikeout and two fly outs to first baseman Caballero.

Casey ripped a single in the top of the third and advanced on a sacrifice bunt by Greene. John Martin sent a line drive to left field for a double.  Wilson hit his second single. Helton reached on another walk with Moldenhauer sending a single for three additional runs. 

Kingston's first two batters reached on errors to start the bottom of the third. Two outs were made from a fly out to center and a fielder's choice, followed by a walk, two singles and a double allowing five runs.  This brought John Martin to the mound in relief to close the inning with a strikeout.

Greene reached on his second walk of the evening in the top of fourth with Martin getting his second hit of the night, but neither batter scored. 

Martin allowed no runs to the Jackets in their half of the inning, striking out one and allowing two hits.

Wilson started the fifth with his third single of the night with Helton reaching on a fielder's choice. Moldenhauer drove in a run with a double. 

Kingston took the lead in the bottom of the fifth on two errors and two hits.

Greene reached on an error in the top of the sixth and advanced to second on Martin's single with both runners left on base. 

Kingston was also scoreless in the sixth, which led to Stone's last chance in the top of the seventh. 

Helton walked to lead off, but the next three batters went down in order for a final

As the SMHS Panthers travelled down the mountain to Kingston, Kingston was prepared to travel to the Plateau. With no home field available, Roane State's baseball team and coaches hurriedly prepared their field for the District 4AA game with one umpire calling the game on the field behind the mound.

Due to the confusion, the junior varsity action was cancelled. SMHS hosted hosted Kingston Tuesday night, before co-hosting the Mountain Man Classic Thursday-Saturday.
