Central High School’s Red Raider baseball team easily dispatched of LaVergne on Saturday afternoon – piling up at least 1 run in every inning to end the game at 12-0 via mercy rule in the fifth inning.

Three Red Raider pitchers combined to limit LaVergne to just three hits on the afternoon. Seniors Griffin Meeker and Wyatt Nugent worked 2 innings apiece and combined for 5 strikeouts.

Meanwhile, Carter McKenzie pitched one innings and struck out the side on just 11 pitches.

The Raiders got contributions at the plate from everywhere. Nolan Jernigan finished with a triple. Meanwhile, Lane Spry, Brady Nugent and McKenzie all doubled. Meeker had 3 hits and an RBI. Also picking up RBIs were Spry, Wyatt Nugent, Hayden Hullett, Brady Nugent, Jacob Holder (2) and Jernigan.

Coffee County improves to 11-5 on the season with the non-district win. The Raides will play a two-game district series with Lincoln County this week – at Fayetteville on Tuesday and at home Wednesday. Both games start at 6 p.m.
