CCMS Baseball Wins on the Road at Harris

Kyler Terry of CCMS baseball

The Coffee Middle School baseball team traveled to Shelbyville to take on Harris.  Entering the game with a record of 3 and 1 in the conference, the Raiders were looking to stay near the top of the conference standings.  A late Red Raider rally propelled the Raiders to a 9 to 5 win.

Trailing 4 to 2 entering the 4th inning, Coffee County put 3 runs on the scoreboard in the 4th inning and put the game on ice with 3 more in the 7th inning.  The Raiders banged out 11 hits in the conference win.  After a rough start on the mound, John McKelvey pitched the Raiders to the win as he struck out 6 in 5 and 1/3 innings of work.

Jacob Sherrill led the Raiders offensively as he had 2 hits, 2 runs scored and 2 RBI to lead the Red and Black.  Kyler Terry had 2 walks, 2 singles and scored once for Coffee Middle.  Dayne Crosslin and Connor Shemwell each added a pair of singles.  The win improves the Raiders to 4 and 2 overall and 4 and 1 in conference play.

The Red Raiders will play host to Harris on Thursday in game #2 of the season series.  This is a makeup of Monday’s game and will begin at 5:30 PM.
