A 2nd inning solo home run from J.P. Duncan staked the CHS Red Raider baseball team to a 1 to nothing lead thru 3 innings of play as Coffee County played host to Warren County on Friday afternoon at Pwers Field. Warren County answered with 2 runs in the 4th inning before scoring 10 runs in the 5th and 6th innings to drop Coffee County 12 to 4. In addition to Duncan’s home run, Noah Anderson was 2 for 3 on the game with an RBI, Dylan Sandoval was 1 for 2 with an RBI and Deandre Wakefield, who pitched well as he finished the game on the mound in relief, added the other RBI.
Another strong start but disastrous finish doomed the Red Raider baseball team on Saturday at Powers Field as they dropped a 17 to 2 decision to Independence. After giving up a run in the top of the 1st to the visiting Eagles, Coffee County starting pitcher Daniel Gassman settled in to hold Independence scoreless through 3 innings which allowed Coffee County to plate the tying run on a Brandon Haston double in the 2nd inning which scored Dylan Sandoval from 1st base. However, 3 Raider errors in the 5th inning broke open a close game as Independence built up a 8 to 1 lead which they would never relinquish. Sandoval scored the 2nd run of the game when Haston reached on an Independence error in the 5th. Coffee County could only muster 4 hits on the game as Sandoval, Wyatt Day and Zach Wise had singles to go with Haston’s double. The JV baseball team will travel to Tullahoma on Monday for a doubleheader beginning at 4:00 PM. Coffee County will play host to Tullahoma on Tuesday night at Powers Field. First pitch is scheduled for 6:00 PM and you can hear the game on Thunder Radio beginning with the pregame show at 5:50.
