Jet baseball team falls to 2-4 in District 6AAA after Tuesday loss

CROSSVILLE — The CCHS Jet baseball team fell to 2-4 in District 6AAA after dropping a 10-1 decision at Warren County Tuesday evening.

Warren County scored early and often to jump out to a lead and never looked back, according to Coach Dave Prichard.

The Pioneers plated two runs in the bottom of the first after loading the bases with two singles and a walk. The next two hitters grounded out but each would plate a single run to get the 2-0 lead. 

Aaron Jones held Warren County in the second and the Jets would threaten in the third with a one out, when Ryan Burgess was hit by a pitch and a line drive by Matt Ledbetter that appeared to be a sure RBI double but was snagged by a diving Pioneer outfielder to end the threat. 

In the bottom of the third, the Pioneers plated three more runs with three singles, two sac flies and a Jet error. After trailing 5-0, the Jet bats fell silent until the top of the sixth.  Cumberland County's lone run came off of a Ledbetter leadoff walk and a Dylan Fehr two out, RBI single. 

After CCHS went to the bullpen in the sixth, Warren County erupted  for five more runs leading to the 10-1 final. 

"You have to tip your cap to Warren County. They came out the aggressors and executed well early to get a lead. When they had to make plays, they did, and that usually leads to wins.  I am a little disappointed with our effort tonight.  We have to put up more of a fight in a big game situation like that.  We will go back to work and continue to work on getting a little better each day," concluded Prichard.

Jones was the losing pitcher, allowing four earned runs on six hits with three walks and three hit batsmen in four and two-thirds innings.

After traveling to Rockwood Thursday, the Jets will host Hardin Valley tonight at 6:30 and White County Monday at 6:30 p.m.

  • 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.
