Upperman Bees’ rally stings Jets 4-2

CROSSVILLE — The  Upperman Bees stung the CCHS Jets with four runs in the final two innings to take a 4-2 victory over the Jets at Jet Park Tuesday evening.

CCHS (1-5) scored once in the bottom of the first and once in the bottom of the fifth for a 2-0 lead, but the Bees sent nine hitters to the plate in the top of the sixth to score three runs for a 3-2 lead and added an insurance run in the top of the seventh to secure the victory.

With the District 6AAA season opening on Friday and Saturday with a league tournament at Warren County High School, Jet coach Dave Prichard used five pitchers — Aaron Jones (1 1/3 innings allowing one hit and one walk), Morgan Richards (two innings with strikeouts), Tayler Houston (2 1/3 innings with one hit and two Ks), David Elliott (1/3 of inning with three runs on two hits and three walks ) and Jacob Hayes (one inning allowing one run, two hits, one K). Elliott absorbed the loss.

Four Upperman pitchers allowed two runs on five hits with 16 strikeouts.

Ethan Cunningham doubled, while Reed Shaw, Bobby Uebelacher, Jones and Matt Ledbetter all singled.

CCHS' first inning run came on a walk to Uebelacher, a stolen base and Shaw's single. On an attempted pickoff play to first base, Shaw stayed in a rundown long enough for Uebelacher to score.

Jones allowed two base runners in the top of the second, and was relieved by Richards who struck out three hitters before giving way to Houston with one out in the top of the fourth.

Houston allowed one hit with two strikeouts in 2 1/3 innings.

The trio kept the Bees from swarming so their teammates could add a second run in the bottom of the fifth on a two-out double by Cunningham, a walk and two balks for the 2-0 lead.

The Bees stung the Jets for three runs on three hits with two walks and a fielder's choice off Elliott, and added their fourth run in the top of the seventh on two singles,  a sacrifice, a hitbatsman and a fielder's choice.

Upperman pitchers struck out 16 Jets, including seven in a row from the second through the fifth innings and five out of the last seven hitters.

The Jets play two games Friday in the 6AAA Mid-season tournament at Warren County High School — Cookeville at 5:30 p.m. and Coffee County at 8 p.m. and twice on Saturday — White County at 12:30 p.m. and Warren County at 8 p.m.
