CHS RED RAIDERS 6, RIVERDALE 15

Three early errors cost the Red Raiders a big second inning and they could never recover in a 15-6 loss to Riverdale Monday in their season opener at Powers Field in Manchester.

Riverdale put up a 5 spot in the second inning – most of it fueled by a two-out error that could have ended the inning with minimal damage.

Coffee County scored four runs in the fifth and added another in the sixth, but Riverdale responded with 3 in the sixth and seventh to end all doubt.

Cole Pippenger knocked in a pair for the Raiders and was one of four CHS players with extra base hits, joining Brady Daugherty, Colter Neel and Nate Rutledge with doubles.

Timothy Henderson was tagged with the loss – allowing 5 over 1.2 innings with a pair of strikeouts.
