Jets defeat Livingston Academy, tie with YAI

CROSSVILLE — The Cumberland County Jet baseball team went 1-0-1 over the weekend, as they defeated Livingston 5-0 in a make-up game Saturday at LAHS and tied York 13-13 Friday in Jamestown.

CCHS 5, Livingston 0: The Jets were the aggressor all day as they claimed a 5-0 win over Livingston on Saturday.  The Jets would threaten in the top of the first but have two runners thrown out at the plate and were unable to score.  In the second Aaron Jones led off with a walk, stole second, moved to third on a ground out and scored with the help of a two out single by Cameron O'Rourke to give the Jets a 1-0 advantage. 

The Jets scored three in the top of the third on hits by Ryan Burgess, Bobby Uebelacker and Reed Shaw along with two hit batsmen.  The Jets added their fifth and final run in the fourth with a leadoff walk by Nathaniel Wyatt who then stole second and later scored on a Matt Ledbetter triple.

On the mound, Morgan Richards was in control all day for the Jets.  "Morgan did a fantastic job today. We have a good amount of confidence in him as a reliever for us and today he got the opportunity to start and did exactly what we asked him to do. Only twice did runners get past second for Livingston today. With that effort, he will earn more starts for us. As a team, it was a complete game effort.  Something we have been looking for for a while.  Hopefully we can carry this momentum into district play," said Coach Dave Prichard, whose team improved to 6-7-1 on the campaign.

Tayler Houston was two for four, and Uebelacker was two for four with an RBI. Richards allowed five hits and four strikeouts to record the complete game victory.

CCHS 13, York 13: The slugfest was called after seven innings because there were no lights on the field. The game will stand as a tie, until a decision to finish the game at Jamestown or complete the game on April 26 when the Dragons come to Jet Park.

Three Jet hurlers — David Elliott, Jacob Hayes and Matt Ledbetter — combined to give up 13 runs on 13 hits with three strikeouts and four walks.

Leading hitters for the Jets were Matt Ledbetter (four hits with two RBIs), Houston (two hits one RBI), Shaw (two hits with three RBIs), Jones (one hit with one RBI), Ethan Cunningham (two hits with one RBI), Nathaniel Wyatt (one hit with two RBIs), Cameron O'Rourke (two hits) and Burgess (one hit with an RBI).

The Jets sent 14 hitters to the plate to score 10 runs on 11 hits. Shaw had two hits with three RBIS in the inning, while both Ledbetter and Houston each two safeties in the frame to give Elliott the lead.

CCHS had several opportunities to score over the next three innings, but stranded four runners during the timespan. Cunningham doubled in the second, while the Jets stranded three in the third on error, a hitbatsman and a walk.

The Dragons scored five runs in the bottom of the second on four hits and two walks to slice the lead to 10-5, and took a 12-10 lead in the bottom of the third on seven runs on six hits, a hitbatsman, two fielder's choices, a passed ball and a wild pitch.

CCHS tied the game at 12-12 with a two spot in the fifth on a single by Ledbetter, an error, a groundout and a sacrifice, and took a 13-12 lead in the top of the sixth on a single and stolen base by O'Rourke and an RBI double by Ledbetter.

York tied the game in the bottom of the sixth on two hits and a wild pitch.

CCHS put the go-ahead run on base in the seventh on an error and a strolen base, but couldn't score.

Ledbetter walked two in the bottom of the seventh, but the Jets turned an inning-ending double play.

Schedule: CCHS returns to District 6AAA play with a road game to Coffee County Monday and a home contest Tuesday. The Jets travel to Walker Valley Wednesday and host the Mustangs Thursday, before playing Sevier County and Oak Ridge Saturday in the Atomic City.

    Most golfers would like to hit the ball further off the tee with the driver.  Distance may not be as important as accuracy off the tee, but it is very valuable. Longer, straighter drives make the game easier.
