Monday afternoon the Coffee County baseball team traveled to Murfreesboro to take on McCallie School out of Chattanooga. The game was played at MTSU.
The Blue Tornado took an early 2-0 lead in the 1st inning and improved that to 4-0 in the bottom of the 2nd. In the top of the 5th the Raiders pushed across two runs on a fly ball by Tyler Cavender and a single by Zach Holder. In the bottom half of the 5th McCallie scored two more times to grab a 6-2 lead. Coffee County charged from behind to plate 4 runs in the 7th to tie the game. Hunter Smithson hit a double that locked up the score. The game moved into an extra inning and the Raiders got an RBI double from Canveder for a 7-6 lead. The Blue Tornado roared back in the 8th with 2 runs for an 8-7 win.
Coffee County at 9-8 on the year will host Columbia in District 8-AAA action Tuesday night at 6pm at Powers Field.
