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.

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.

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.

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).

    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.
