The Trousdale County Yellow Jackets played their two regular-season games against Gordonsville last week. However, neither game was close as the Jackets stretched their losing streak against the Tigers to five games.
The Jackets played at home on April 2, but the Tigers scored three runs in the first inning, two in the second, two in the fourth and four in the seventh of an 11-0 victory. Trousdale had more errors (5) than hits (3) in the loss.
Sophomore Will Holder had two of the Jackets’ hits while classmate Ben Chumley had the other base hit.
Gordonsville’s Joey Parliament hit a pair of long home runs for the Tigers.
The next day in South Carthage, the Jackets trailed 8-0 after two innings and 11-2 going into the bottom of the sixth. The Tigers loaded the bases and scored on a wild pitch to invoke the 10-run rule and claim a 12-2 victory.
Seniors Logan Calhoun and Logan Hewitt each had a hit, while sophomore Kobe Pridemore and freshman Elijah Henderson had the other two hits for Trousdale (5-6, 2-2 6-A).
The Jackets played their series with Clay County on Monday and Tuesday. They will host Lebanon on Thursday at 6 p.m. and Pickett County next Monday at 6 p.m.
