The Coffee County Middle School baseball team played host to the Middle Tennessee Monarchs on Thursday.  Hosting the Rutherford County team for the 2nd time in 3 days, the Red Raiders celebrated 8th Grade Night.  The Monarchs exploded for 3 runs in the 5th inning as they dropped Coffee Middle 7 to 3.

With Coffee County leading 2 to 1 entering the 5th inning, the Monarchs got a 2 out rally to score 3 runs with the help of a walk, an error and a pair of hits.  The Red Raiders were held to 4 hits.  Jacob Holder had a single, a double and 2 RBI.  Tristan Grissom and Remington Banks each had a single.

Coffee Middle returns to the diamond on Monday when they open up the final week of the regular season at home playing host to Tullahoma.  First pitch is set for 5 PM.
