Macon Puts Together Five Wins
MCHS Baseball play is improving as they manage to make a small run. This week they continued where they left off last week, and put together three more wins.
On Monday the 8th MCHS hosted district foe Sycamore. Sycamore scored two earned runs to take an early lead, but that is when the Tigers bats woke up. They managed to score five runs in the next two innings. After allowing two more unearned runs for Sycamore in the top of the 6th inning, MCHS scored three more runs to put the game away. Final score MCHS 8 Sycamore 4.
Austin Taft goes 2 for 3 with one RBI and Shane Hesson goes 3 for 4 collecting four RBIs. Senior hurler Dalton Shrum pitches the distance and collects his first win of the year.
On Tuesday the 9th Macon traveled to Sycamore. This contest was much closer going back and forth, but the Tigers never trailed. They scored one in the top of the first, third, and sixth innings to win the contest by a final score of 3 to 1. This is the first contest this season that the Tiger defense did not commit an error.
Ian Whittemore goes 2 for 4 with one RBI while Ryan Craighead finishes 3 for 4 with two RBIs. Austin Craighead collects the win with a total of 14 strike-outs in the game.
On Friday the 12th MCHS met Trousdale County just down Highway 10. Jacob McClard gives up only three hits and one earned run to collect the win. Tyler “Duck Man” Kemp goes 2 for 2 with one RBI while Larken Whittemore scores two runs.
This week the Tigers are scheduled to play at Westmoreland on the 15th, host Westmoreland on the 16th, and travel to Middle TN Christian in Murfreesboro to play in the Walking Horse Classic this weekend.
