After struggling to get runs across the plate earlier in the week, the Central High School Red Raider bats started heating up on Thursday.

CHS pounded out 13 hits, including three off the fence and one over it, in a 10-3 win over visiting Marshall County in the first game of the Crethan Hansert Memorial Tournament.


Carter McKenzie had a solid night at the plate. The third baseman had an RBI single in the first inning, a single and a run scored in the fifth and a 2 RBI double in the sixth that put the game out of reach. He also initiated a 5-4-3 double play in the first inning on defense.

Nolan Jernigan lifted his second home run of the season, a 2-run shot over the left field fence in the second inning to score Griffin Meeker. Meeker had a single, double and a pair of runs scored.
