Trousdale County High School got its 2020 baseball season underway with two games last week.

The Jackets made the short trip to Westmoreland for the season opener on March 9 and blanked the Eagles 5-0. Coach Hayden Williams’ boys scored one run in the second inning, three in the fifth and one in the seventh to claim the win.

Kobe Pridemore, a Freed-Hardeman signee, pitched a complete game, striking out 10 batters while giving up just three hits.

Pridemore, Eli Henderson and Brayden Gooch each went 1-for-3 at the plate, while Ben Chumley and Cameron Rankins had the other two hits for Trousdale County.

On March 10, the Jackets played their home opener but fell 4-1 to the Macon County Tigers. Trousdale gave up nine hits while collecting just four of their own.

Taylor Ellis went 2-for-3 for TCHS, while Pridemore and Chumley each had hits.

Henderson pitched five innings, striking out seven batters and giving up five hits.
