SMHS goes 11 innings against Alcoa

CROSSVILLE — The Alcoa Tornadoes scored one run in the bottom of the 11th inning Monday night to defeat the SMHS Pantthers 6-5 in District 4AA action.

Senior Jared Beaty hurled all 11 innings against Alcoa's Tyler Trout in the marathon outing. He threw more than 150 pitches to Trout's 130-plus tosses in the tough loss to the Tornadoes. Beaty gave up 15 hits with four strikeouts and two walks in the nailbiter.

Stone led for three innings after getting one run in the top of the first on a double by Luke Matthews and an RBI single by Beaty.  Brandon Cole was intentionally walked before Jared South reached on a walk to score Matthews.

SMHS added another run in the third on a walk to Matthews, a single by Beaty and an error. Beaty scored on Nathan Greene's sacrifice fly. 

Alcoa scored five runs in the bottom of the fourth with ten batters coming to the plate.  The Panthers made five defensive errors in the field, while the Tornadoes banged out three hits with one walk.

The game remained scoreless through six innings.

The Panthers got their offense working in the top of the seventh.  Beaty reached first on a fielder's choice, then reached second on a passed ball and scored when Cole reached on an error. Cole scored on Greene's second hit to knot the score at 5-5.

The score remained at 5-5 until the bottom of the 11th inning, when the Tornadoes ripped back-to-back doubles to plate the winning run.

Beaty led the offense with three hits, followed by Cole who reached base five times with a hit, two intentional walkes and two errors. Greene and Brian Frye poke two hits apiece, and Matthews and John Martin smacked one hit each.

After the Panthers hosted the Tornadoes Tuesday night, they will host Cookeville Cavaliers Thursday night and to Livingston Saturday for a double-header.
