Coffee County got 5 hits and 2 hit batters in the 1st inning to jump out to a 5 to 0 lead. Raider pitcher Hayden Skipper pitched 5 1/3 innings to get the win. Zack Milan came on in relief in the 6th inning to get the save. Kael McCall had 2 singles and 2 RBI to lead the Raider attack. A.J. Rollman, Skylar Bratcher, Gage Edwards and Hayden Skipper all had a hit for Coffee County. The win improves the Raiders record to 10 and 8 on the year and 6 and 4 in district play.
