Lady Raiders struggle with runners on in loss to Baylor

Coffee County Lady Raider softball had the bases loaded with no outs in the first and had them loaded again with 1 out in the second and only managed 1 run in those two innings in a 6-2 loss to Baylor Friday afternoon to open the Coffee County Classic.

The first inning was slowed when Ava McIntosh was hit by a batted ball trying to run to second base, leading to an out and a blow to the early momentum. CHS did eventually get one run in the first when Savannah Cooper scored on a wild pitch.

Then in the second inning Coffee County loaded the bases again with one out and the top of the lineup coming to the plate, but Baylor’s Avery Shamblin struck out two and ended the threat. Shamblin went on to strike out 10 in the win.

Coffee County added one more run in the fifth inning on an RBI fielder’s choice hit into by Katelyn Anderson to score Cheyenne Vickers (running for Kaitlyn Davis).

Baylor scored 2 in the second, 1 in the third and 3 in the fourth inning to pull away. Addi Yates blasted a home run and had an RBI double for the Baylor Raiders.

Coffee County’s night game with Wilson Central was cancelled due to rain. The Lady Raiders are scheduled to play Riverdale at 10 a.m. Saturday at Dave King Park and again at 5:20 Saturday afternoon at CHS – weather and field conditions permitting.
