Panthers lose 9-5 to Warren County Pioneers

CROSSVILLE — The Stone Memorial Panther baseball team returned home Tuesday night to host District 6AAA foe Warren County and to try to end a two-game losing streak, but the visitors outslugged the Panthers 9-5.

With the loss, SMHS (3-4) fell into a fourth-place tie in the league with White County, which split their home-and-home series with Cookeville (6-1). CCHS (5-2) is second, with Warren County (4-3) third and Rhea County (0-7) sixth.

Clay Wilson was the starter for the Panthers against Logan Underhill, who earned the complete game victory.

Warren County scored three unearned runs in the first inning, as the Panthers committed three errors. Chayse Frye also stole a base for the Pioneers.

Underhill retired the Panthers in order in the bottom of the first inning.

Warren County added another run in the top of the second on a sacrifice bunt and another error for a 4-0 lead.

Wilson hit a gapper for a double in the bottom of the second, but  two strikeouts ended the threat.

Luke Matthews and Wayne Burns turned a double play to thwart another threat by the Pioneers.

Burns reached on an infield error in the bottom of the third, and scored after a Grant Cooper bunt and a fielder's choice by Brian Frye slicing the margin to 4-1.

After the Pioneers were retired in order in the top of the fourth, the Panthers tied the game at 4-4 in their half of the inning.

Jason Moldenhauer's solo homer to left centerfield sliced the gap to 4-2. Matthews and Wilson both singled and moved up on a passed ball. Gabe Cabellero line drive to center scored Matthews. Pinch runner Sam Hennessee scored on Austin Robertson's infield hit to tie the game.

The Pioneers regained the lead in the top of the fifth inning, as Hilliard Park singled, stole second, went to third on a a fielder's choice and scored on Chayse Frye's sacrifice fly.

SMHS couldn't get anything going in the bottom of the fifth.

After another Warren County hit and a walk, Coach Adam Kefauver brought in John Martin to pitch in the sixth inning. The Pioneers later scored twice on another walk and a Panther error for a 7-4 advantage.

Moldenhauer doubled in the bottom of the sixth, moved to third on a sacrifice fly and scored on an infield hit by Wilson to slice the deficit to 7-5.

In the top of the seventh, Martin allowed another hit and a walk, bringing in freshman Dalton Barnes, who faced one batter, and then Caballero to finish the game. Warren County scored two runs to raise the score to 9-5.

SMHS was retired in order in the bottom of the seventh.

Schedule: SMHS traveled to Livingston Thursday instead of playing at Bledsoe County. The Panthers will play at Bledsoe County tonight at 5:30.

The Panthers will play at White County Monday and host the Warriors Tuesday. Both games begin at 5:30 p.m.

    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.
