Matt Smith drove in five runs, one with a squeeze bunt and four on a grand slam Thursday in a 9-4 win over Hackett.
On the mound it was Randon Baumgartner and Trevor Blake teaming up to knock off Matt Moran and the Hornets for the second time this season.
Blake got the win in relief the first time the schools met. Thursday he threw two innings to save it for Baumgartner (3-1).
For four innings Baumgartner and Moran matched zeroes with Baumgartner getting out of a bases loaded jam in the second and stranding runners at second and third in the third.
However, in the fifth, the Hornets got to the senior for a couple of runs, starting with a leadoff walk to Christian McKee. Loren Lasko put down a bunt, then won a race to the bag.
Baumgartner caught McKee off second and threw him out going to third, and got Moran to ground to Jack Kirbo at third with Kirbo throwing Lasko out at the plate. But after a walk to Brooks Wilson, freshman Avery Hester singled home two.
Magazine took the lead in the bottom of the inning. Ninth hitting Adam Brink singled with one down and Ethan Chenowith followed with one of his three walks. Blake put down a bunt and reached to load the bases because nobody covered first.
Moran caught Chenowith too far off second but his would-be pickoff throw bounced into center field allowing two runs to score and Blake to reach third. Smith put down a squeeze bunt to give the Rattlers a 3-2 lead and he also reached on a throwing error. A walk to Baumgartner and a wild pitch got Smith to third and he scored on a sacrifice fly by Pacen Roberson.
After Blake needed just eight pitches in the sixth Jacob Hall drew a walk to start the bottom of the inning and Moran departed for Hester. Beau Shott greeted Hester with a single and after Brink struck out, Chenowith walked and Tyler Satterfield took over.
Blake singled to make it 5-2 and Smith delivered a grand slam for his third home run of the year, and it was 9-2.
Hackett got two runs back in the seventh as Blake walked three, allowed two hits and needed 36 pitches, as well as a runner caught trying to steal third when it was still a seven run game, to finish it. Bradley Martin drove in the runs with a bases loaded single.
Clarksville 4 Rattlers 3
Clarksville scored three times with two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning, earning their first win of the season Monday.
Down 3-1, the Panthers had two aboard after Randon Baumgartner (2-1) issued walks to Daniel Villareal and Garrett Waddle but Waddle was erased trying to steal and Baumgartner struck out Alex Snow.
A single by John-Foster Case, coupled with an error made it 3-2 and moved the go-ahead runners into scoring position. A double by Braden Nelson gave the Panthers the lead.
Case induced a come-backer from Matt Smith leading off the seventh but surrendered a single to Baumgartner. After Pacen Roberson was retired on strikes, Jack Kirbo worked a walk but Jacob Hall grounded out to end the game.
Villareal started the game for the Panthers but didn’t get out of the first inning.
Ethan Chenowith doubled to start the game and Trevor Blake followed with a walk.
Villareal got Smith for his only putout of the game before walking Baumgartner and allowing a single to Roberson that, after Blake scored on a passed ball, made it 2-0.
Chenowith walked in the fourth, stole second, moved to third on a ground ball by Blake and scored on a passed ball to make it 3-0.
Miles Kimbrell doubled home Villarreal in the bottom of the fourth to get the Panthers within 3-1.
