BASEBALL: Raiders split district double header at Franklin County

Brady Nugent played the hero in game one of a double header with Franklin County Wednesday night in Winchester.

In a game that went extra innings and saw the Raiders fall behind 6-5 in the top of the 9th, Nugent tied things up immediately in the bottom of the inning (the Raiders were the home team in game 1) when he turned around a 3-2 pitch and parked it over the left field fence.

Caleb Moran followed suit by earning a walk. After stealing second base, Moran moved to third on a wild pitch and scored on an error to give the Raiders a walk-off win over the Rebels.

Moran was big at the plate all night with a pair of RBIs and three runs scored. Jacob Holder also knocked in a pair for the Raiders, who came from behind after trailing 5-3 entering the bottom of the sixth inning.

Raiders 8, Franklin County 7

The Rebels flipped the script on the Raiders in game two – getting a walk-off of their own.

After Coffee County scored 2 in the top of the 7th to take a 7-4 lead, the Rebels rallied for 4 in the bottom half, including a walk-off double to win 8-7.

Jacob Holder went 6.2 for the Raiders and allowed 6 earned runs while walking 5 and striking out 9. He scattered 7 hits. He ran out of fuel in the seventh, Brady Nugent entered and a two-run double gave the Rebels the win.

The Raiders got 4 extra base hits in the win – including a triple and a home run out of Aiden Robertson, who had 4 RBIs and scored twice. Cole Pippenger, Holder and Jacob Sherrill all doubled.

The Raiders remain tied with Franklin County in the district standings and will play Warren County in a 2-game series next week.
