The Commandos wasted a tremendous pitching performance from Caid Sanders en route to a 4-0 loss to the Green Wave of Gallatin in the first round of the District 9AAA tournament.
Sanders struck out 16 Green Wave hitters in 7 innings of work while allowing only two hits.
Gallatin's Matt Bradley matched Sanders pitch for pitch not giving up a hit until the 7th inning. Bradley struck out 11.
Gallatin scored 4 runs in the top of the 7th on one hit to break open a scoreless game.
With the loss, the Commandos fall to 27-5 on the year and into the loser's bracket of the District 9AAA Tournament. They will play in a win or go home game vs Beech today at 4:00.
The Commandos ended the regular season with a 6-3 win over the Bobcats of John Overton High School on Wednesday night.
Three Commando pitchers combined to strike out 10 Bobcat hitters on the night. Brandon Tucker, Caid Sanders and Kobe Carter all handled the pitching duties. Tucker and Sanders struck out 5 each in three innings of work.
Overton took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first with three straight hits to start the game. However, Tucker got the next three hitters out with two strikeouts and a ground out to get out of the jam and keep the score 1-0.
The Commandos took the lead for good in the bottom of the third. Hayden Layne and Hayden Mullins walked and with one out Houston Peacock doubled to score Layne and tie the game 1-1. Austin Mays hit a ball through the right side and reached on an error with two outs. The play allowed both Mullins and Peacock to score to make it 3-1 Commandos.
HHS would get three more runs in the bottom of the 5th to put the game away. Mays singled to lead off the inning and Reid Nelson walked. After a wild pitch moved runners to second and third, Luke McClendon singled to drive in Mays to make the score 4-1. Another wild pitch scored Nelson to make it 5-1 and a Gabe Dalton sac fly scored McClendon to give HHS it's 6th run of the game.
With the win the Commandos end the regular season with a record of 27-4. This ties the single-season record for the most regular season wins in school history. A mark first set in 2016. The Commandos will next play in the District 9AAA Tournament beginning on Saturday May 5 at 2:00 vs Gallatin.
The Commandos picked up a win over Wilson Central for the second straight night 5-0 to close out the 2018 District 9AAA regular season.
The game was scoreless going into the bottom of the 4th as Wilson Central senior Will Wright and HHS junior Hayden Mullins were locked in a pitchers duel. The Commandos got singles off the bats of Brett Coker and Hayden Layne and a walk to Gabe Dalton to load the bases with one out. Nate Vaughn drew a walk to drive in Coker and give the Commandos a 1-0 lead. Caid Sanders then singled to drive in Layne and Dalton and make the score 3-0 HHS.
Mullins took it from there. The junior picked up his 4th win of the year while throwing a complete-game shutout. He did not allow a hit until the 7th inning when Connor Sullivan led off the inning with a double. However Mullins would pick up his 9th and 10th strikeouts of the night and induce a ground out to end the game.
With the win the Commandos improve to 26-4 on the year and finish 12-2 in District 9AAA. The Commandos will next play at home vs John Overton on Wednesday night as we conclude the regular season.
The Commandos used a complete-game shutout from Cameron Hansen and two timely hits from Reid Nelson and Austin Mays to defeat the Wildcats of Wilson Central 1-0 on Monday night.
Wilson Central senior Aaron Hubbell had the Commando offense shut down most of the night until the 5th inning when Reid Nelson tripled to lead off the inning. Austin Mays had an infield single to score Nelson to give the Commandos a 1-0 lead.
Cameron Hansen took it from there. The junior RHP struck out 9 and allowed two hits in his seven innings of work. Hansen picked up his 8th win of the year in the process.
With the win the Commandos can finish no worse than 2nd place in District 9AAA and will host half of the district tournament beginning this Saturday.
HHS improves to 25-4 overall and 12-1 in District 9AAA. The Commandos will next play at home on Tuesday night against Wilson Central at 7:00
