Nation’s No. 5 baseball Ads rolling along as tourney time approaches


The FHS baseball machine is rolling along just fine as playoff time lurks just around the corner.

Though both Science Hill and William Blount jumped out to early leads against Tommy Pharr’s defending Class AAA state champs and No. 5 nationally-ranked Ads (BaseballAmerica poll), FHS took control.

Farragut entered the week with a 31-1 overall record, 9-0 in District 4-AAA.


FHS 6 WBHS 1

Cody Brown’s home run and triple were the biggest hits, accounting for three RBIs. Winning pitcher Philip Sherrard, who allowed just five in while going the distance (seven innings), helped his cause with an RBI double in a four-run fourth-inning that broke open a 1-1 tie.

FHS 8 SCIENCE HILL 2

Trailing 2-1 after three innings, the Admirals scored four runs in the fourth inning highlighted by Kyle Waldrop’s bases-clearing three-RBI double.

Harrison Eldridge added a solo home run and sacrifice fly. Riley Jennings doubled and scored on David King’s sacrifice fly to gave FHS its first run. Jennings, Brown, Tony Delmonico and Sherrard each had two hits.

Winning pitcher Rob Catapano worked 6 1/3 innings, allowing two earned runs, five hits and three walks while striking out nine. Reliever Drew Reagan worked 2/3 of an inning.

FHS 9 SOUTH-DOYLE 0

Waldrop pitched a complete game four-hit shutout with 10 strikeouts and two walks.

Catcher Scott Dean came up huge early with a bases-clearing three-RBI double.

Eldridge’s three-run homer in the sixth polished off the Cherokees. Eldridge led the Admiral attack with three hits. Delmonico added two hits.

FHS 20 POWELL 2

Reagan’s three-run homer and a pair of two-run blast from Sherrard and Brown led the way.

Delmonico added three hits and three RBIs. Brown and Jennings each had two hits.

Winning pitcher Phillip Heyming (three innings) and reliever Ryne Steben (two) combined to allow just five hits and one walk with six strikeouts.
