A 5-run bottom of the first inning and a 14-strikeout performance on the mound from Aiden Robertson led the Coffee County Central Red Raiders to an 8-2 District 6-4A win over Franklin County Wednesday afternoon in Manchester – a game you heard live on Thunder Radio.

The Raiders set the tone early – taking a 5-0 lead in the bottom half of the first. Freshman leadoff hitter got the ball rolling with a double to leftfield. Junior Jacob Holder came to the plate and blasted a double to the left-centerfield gap to plate a pair of runs. Holder finished the night with two hits and a pair of RBIs – he drove in two more in the bottom of the fifth.

Caleb Moran also had an RBI for the Raiders on a single.

That was plenty of offense for Robertson. The junior right-hander cruised through the Rebel lineup with little resistance. He went the distance, striking out 14 batters while only allowing four hits – 3 on infield singles. He was named Thunder Radio player of the game – insured by Brett Harris with Farmers Insurance.

Peyton Miller was hit with the loss for the Rebels. He allowed 4 runs (3 earned) on four hits and did not record an out before being replaced by Josh Stoltzfus, who struck out 9 Raiders and allowed 2 runs on no hits over the next 3 2/3.

The Raiders are now 2-4 overall and 1-1 in district play. They return to action Thursday at Middle Tennessee Christian School.
