Trousdale County’s baseball team overcame a shaky start last Friday to claim a 13-3 win over Jackson County to open the District 6-A Tournament at Monterey.

Trousdale trailed 3-1 entering the bottom of the second inning, but put up four runs to take the lead for good. The Yellow Jackets would add four more runs in the third, one in the fourth and three in the fifth to end the game and extend their winning streak over the Blue Devils to four in a row.

Senior Dyson Satterfield and junior Chandler Barton each had two hits, while senior Keyvont Baines, junior Ben Chumley and sophomore Robert Butcher also had hits.

Chumley went the distance on the mound, recording 11 strikeouts and allowing just one earned run.

The Jackets ended their regular season on April 29 at Smith County, but the result was not a good one as they fell 8-0 to the Owls.

Trousdale had six hits in the game: two from Satterfield and one from Barton, Butcher, senior Houston Stafford and sophomore Eli Henderson.

The Jackets were scheduled to play tournament host Monterey on Monday evening. Trousdale County is looking to make back-to-back appearances in the region tournament after finishing as runner-up in 6-A last season.
