Jets end season with two losses to Warren County

CROSSVILLE — The CCHS Jet baseball team's quest for their first berth in the Region 3AAA Tournament since 1998 ended Wedesday, as the Warren County Pioneers won a 15-2 decision in the third game of the best two-out-of-three series at Jet Park. Warren County  won 14-2 in McMinnville Tuesday evening to even the series at 1-1

Warren County 14, CCHS 2: The Pioneers scored all of their runs in the final 3 1/3 innings, ending the game on a one-out, three-run homer by Hunter Mullican to even the best two-out-of- three series at 1-1.

Pioneer starter Ryan Jennings retired the first six Jets in order before giving up a lead-off single to Jet starting pitcher Morgan Richards, who was erased on a forced out at second base.

Jet senior Matt Ledbetter reached on a one-out error in the fourth and was wild pitched to second. Nathaniel Wyatt walked, but both were stranded as Jennings struck out the next two Jets.

CCHS added two unearned runs in the top of the fifth, as Richards reached on an error, Justin Shipe walked, Ethan Cunningham was hit by a pitch and Burgess singled home Richards. Shipe scored on Grant Parrett's groundout to second.

Warren County had runners on base all evening.

Chayse Frye singled with two out in the bottom of the first and Lee Carden reached on error, but Richards struck out Jon Reed to end the threat.

The Pioneers plated three runs in the bottom of the second on singles by Jett Urtubees and Frye and three walks for the early lead.

Warren County sent nine batters to the hill with five scoring on singles by Reed, Urtubees, Luke Underhill and Frye, two fielder's choices, a passed ball and an error for the 8-0 advantage.

Matt Vanlandingham relieved Richards on the hill in the bottom of the fourth, but allowed three runs on singles by Mullican and Isacc Golden, three walks and a sacrifice fly for the 11-0 lead.

After the Jets scored two in the top half of the fifth to briefly stop the mercy rule from kicking in, the Pioneers ended the game on Mullican's three-run blast off reliever Brenton Houston, after a walk and a single by Reed.

The three Jet hurlers allowed 14 runs on 11 hits with four strikeouts and eight walks.

Jennings allowed two runs on two hits with two walks and six strikeouts. Burgess and Richards had the two hits.

Warren County 15, CCHS 2: The Pioneers continued their torrid hitting Wednesday, scoring 14 of the 15 runs in third, fourth and fifth innings to earn a berth in Thursday's championship game against Cookeville, 3-1 winners over White County.

The Pioneers scored an unearned run in to the top of the first inning on singles

by Luke Underhill and Lee Carden, an error and a wild pitch off Jet starter Grant Parrett.

Pioneer starter Tristan Smith allowed a leadoff single by Ryan Burgess, but Richards hit into a double play. Ledbetter was hit by a pitch with two out, but was stranded at second base after he swiped it.

After both teams stranded a base runner in the second inning, it was all Warren County the remainder of the game.

The Pioneers plated five runs in the third inning on singles by Rogers and Frye, a double by Carden, a stolen base, a passed ball, a wild pitch and an error for a 6-0 advantage.

The Jets scored once in the bottom of the third on a walk, a fielder's choice and singles by Ledbetter and Wyatt to slice the deficit to 6-1.

Warren County added three more runs in the top of the fourth for an 8-1 lead on singles by Rogers, Reed and Urtubees, an error, a fielder's choice and a walk.

Reed Shaw and Ethan Cunningham both singled in the bottom half of the inning.

The Pioneers sealed the victory with a six-run fifth inning on a single by Rogers, a triple by Mullican, a fielder's choice, a groundout, a hitbatsman, two walks and two passed balls on third strikes.

The Jets closed out the game with a solo run in the home half of the fifth on a hitbatsman, a walk and Parrett's RBI single.

Parrett was the losing pitcher, allowing nine runs on six hits with five Ks and four walks, while David Elliott pitched two innings, giving up six runs on four hits with two strikeouts and one walk.

Burgess, Wyatt, Parrett, Shaw and Shipe each poked one hif for the Jets (21-14).

Correction: In Monday night's win over  Warren County, it was Nathaniel Wyatt who had the solo home run to give the Jets a 2-1 lead.
