After receiving a BYE in the opening round of the CTC Tournament, Coffee Middle’s Red Raiders flexed on Warren County in round two with a 7-0 shutout Tuesday night in Sparta.
Evan Kirby and Cole Pippenger led the shutout effort on the mound with an error-free defense behind them. Kirby only allowed two hits and struck out 3 Pioneer batters over four innings of work. Pippenger allowed two hits and K’d five batters over three innings.
Pippenger was dynamic at the plate – going 4-for-4 with 5 RBIs. Grant McCullough and Jace Cashion also had hits for the Raider offense.
