Raider Baseball Comes from Behind for Win and Lady Raiders Drop Final Game in Gulf Shores

Davis McKenzie makes a defensive play at third base for the Raiders on Wednesday night.

It came down to Coffee County’s final at-bat in Manchester, as the Red Raiders pulled off a come-from-behind win over Warren County in baseball action on Wednesday night.

Down 5-3 in the bottom of the 7th, the Red Raiders loaded the bases. Nate Rutledge reached on an error, scoring Trevor Jesse. Colter Neel then walked to score Cole Pippenger. Blake Hillis came to the plate and hit a shot that burned the Pioneer centerfielder to score Bird Fellers. Coffee County walked off with a 6-5 District 9-AAAA win to improve to 2-0 and 6-6 overall.

Pitcher Bird Fellers, who started in centerfield, came in relief to earn the win. He threw 3.1 innings, allowing one hit and striking out five Warren County batters.

Hillis, who had the big hit for the Raiders, was the Dr Jay Trussler/Rooster 101.5 Player of the Game.

Coffee County travels on Friday to play in a Classic at East Robertson High School, beginning at 12:30 PM, to take on Liberty Creek. The Raiders will play two more games before traveling to Shelbyville on Monday. You can hear the game on WHMT 105.1 and 95.9.


In their final game in Gulf Shores, Al the Coffee County Lady got the long ball going, but it wasn’t enough, as they fell 4-3 to the Deshler Lady Tigers from Tuscumbia.

For the Lady Raiders, Jalyn Moran hit a solo homer, Paisley Campbell a two-run shot, and Channah Gannon added three hits.

Coffee County falls to 7-5 overall and will be back in action at Warren County on Monday at 7 PM.
