Ledbetter, Houston, Bilbrey shine in Jets’ district win

CROSSVILLE — Matt Ledbetter and Tayler Houston each cracked two hits, while John Bilbrey struck out 14 to lead the CCHS Jets to a 5-1 District 6AAA victory over the Warren County Pioneers Monday night at Jet Park.

Ledbetter slammed a double and a solo homer with two RBIs, while Houston had a single and a double for the Jets. Cameron O'Rourke and Ryan Burgess each poked on hit.

Bilbrey hurled another complete game, allowing one run on five hits with 14 Ks and three walks.

Derek Brumley was the losing pitcher, allowing five runs on seven hits with two strikeouts, one walk and two hit batsman. Alex Hillis ripped two doubles for the Pioneers, while Logan Underhill, Collin Hutchens and Brett Mulican each smacked one hit.

After Bilbrey retired the side in the top of the first, his teammates plated three runs in their half of the inning on a hitbatsman, RBI doubles by Jones and Houston and a couple of groundouts for the early lead.

Warren County loaded the bases in the top of the second on two walks, a single by Mullican, a stolen base and a passed ball, but Bilbrey struck out three to kill the threat.

With one out in the bottom of the second, Burgess walked, stole second and scored on Ledbetter's RBI double for a 4-0 lead. Bilbrey was hit by a pitch, but Ledbetter was tagged out in a run down to end the inning.

Warren County opened the third with a double by Underhill and a single by Hutchens, but Garrison Holmes reached on a fielder's choice to force Hutchens at second, and Bilbrey fanned two more Pioneers to kill that threat.

Brumley retired the next six Jets in order before Ledbetter drilled a 2-2 Brumley fast ball over the left field fence to give his team a 5-1 lead in the bottom of the fifth.

That was Ledbetter's first home run as a Jet.

After giving up a one-out double in the top of the fourth to Hillis, Bilbrey retired the next eight Pioneers, before allowing a double to Hillis and a walk in the top of the seventh. He fanned the final three hitters to secure his team's win.

Cameron O'Rourke and Houston both singled in the bottom of the sixth, but Brumley worked out of the jam.

CCHS traveled to Warren County Tuesday for the rematch of the home-and-home series, and will visit Rockwood Thursday and host Hardin Valley Friday.
