What looked hopeless for Coffee County turned on two big swings in the sixth inning Friday against Baylor.

After striking out in 14 out of 16 at bats from the first inning to the sixth inning, the Lady Raiders got two big home runs to force extra innings with Baylor before falling 5-4 in the first game of the Coffee County Classic at Terry Floyd Field in Manchester.

But the Lady Raiders couldn’t plate another run and eventually lost on a walk-off RBI single by Holly Merritt in the bottom of the 8th.
