Leads of 4 to 0 and 6 to 3 were not enough for the Coffee County CHS Red Raider baseball team on Saturday as 5th and 6th inning rallies by Tullahoma dropped the Raiders by a score of 7 to 6 in the loser’s bracket of the District 8AAA baseball tournament.  The Raiders got on the board first in the top of the 2nd inning as they plated 3 runs.  Freshman Nathaniel Tate ripped a 2 RBI double for the big hit in the inning driving in J.P. Duncan and Zach Wise after Wise’s RBI double to drive in Wyatt Day.  Zach Holmes scored a run in the 3rd on Duncan’s fielder’s choice. Tullahoma responded with 2 runs in the bottom of the 3rd, Coffee responded as Wise got a 2 out double and scored on a error by the Wildcat’s 3rd baseman.  Tullahoma banged out 5 hits in the 5th to tie the game at 6 before plating the winning run in the 6th inning on a pair of Coffee County errors.  Zach Wise was 2 for 4 on the day with a pair of doubles and an RBI while Day and Peyton Booth were 2 for 4 with a pair of singles.  Chase Dixon was 3 for 3 for Tullahoma.  The loss ends the season for the Red Raiders.
