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.
