Panthers shut out Rhea County

CROSSVILLE — On a wet Monday afternoon, the Stone Memorial baseball team  hosted Rhea County in a District 6AAA match-up to claim a 10-0 win in the first game of the home-and-home series.

The Panthers got their offense going to score early and often to end the game in the fifth inning on the TSSAA 10-run rule.

After starter Clay Wilson faced four hitters in the top of the first with just one hit, his teammates scored five runs in the bottom of the inning.

Speedy left fielder Brian Frye led off the game with a single and moved to second on an error. Luke Matthews was hit by a pitch. Both scored on Jason Moldenhauer's triple to right centerfield for a 2-0 lead.

Senior Gabe Caballero then blasted a two-run homer of the left centerfield fence for a 4-0 advantage. With two out, freshman designated hitter Dalton Barnes, senior Wayne Burns and Jordan Proffitt all singled for the other run. Burns was thrown out on a pitchout.

Wilson gave up two two-out singles in the top of the second inning.

In the bottom of the second, Frye led off with a hit down the left field line, followed by a single by Matthews and a walk to Moldenhauer to load the bases. Caballero's sacrifice fly plated Frye for a 6-0 lead. Wilson's bunt single plated Matthews, while Barnes and Robertson were both hit by pitches, which prompted a pitching change. The Golden Eagle reliever retired Burns to end the inning.

After Wilson retired the side in the top of the third, SMHS added to their lead on a hitbatsman, another single by Frye. With two out, Moldenhauer ripped a triple to right centerfield to plate Matthews for the 8-0 lead.

Rhea County went three up, three down in the fourth, thanks to a spectacular catch by Robertson in centerfield.

Robertson opened the bottom of the fourth with a hit up the middle and scored on Burns' double to left centerfield for the 9-0 advantage. Frank Heilmeier, Tyler Roberts, Sam Hennessee and Kelsey Flores all pinch hit in the fourth inning. Roberts and Hennessee singled to plate Burns for the 10-0 lead.

Rhea County was retired in order in the top of the fifth inning to end the game.

Wilson pitched a complete game shut out with three strike outs and giving up only three hits.

Leading hitters were Frye (three for three), Matthews (one for two with two runs scored), Moldenhauer (two for two with two triples), Caballero (three-run homer), Robertson (two for three), Barnes (one for two) and Burns (two for two).

Schedule: The Panthers played at Rhea County Tuesday, weather permitting, and will travel to Sweetwater Friday.

  • The truth about driver distance

    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.
