Coffee County put some runs on the board Saturday against Central Magnet of Murfreesboro, but some errors were costly as the Raiders gave up six unearned runs in a 12-9 loss to the Tigers at Powers Field to wrap up the Crethan Hansert Memorial Tournament Saturday.

Coffee County led 5-1 after 3 innings. But the Tigers scored 4, 3 and 4 over the next three innings to pull away and take a 12-7 lead that held up.

Four different Raiders got work on the mound. Brady Daugherty got the start and allowed 3 earned over 3.1 innings. He allowed 2 hits, walked 4 and struck out 4. Daugherty worked 2 scoreless in then allowed 1 in the third before appearing to fatigue in the fourth.

Sophomore Trevor Jesse was tagged with the loss in relief – allowed 5 runs (3 earned) on 5 hits in 1.1 innings.

Davis McKenzie allowed 4 unearned over 1.1 innings and Landan Abellana tossed a scoreless seventh.

Coffee County had some reason to celebrate at the plate. After being no-hit and shutout on Friday, the Raiders busted 9 hits, including doubles from Jayden Fellers and Caleb Moran. Cole Pippenger doubled and tripled, knocking in 3 runs.

The loss made the Raiders 1-2 in the weekend tournament and makes them 13-8 on the year.
