Trojans Top Providence to Begin Sikes Tournament

Charles Henderson moved to 3-0 on the young season with a 6-1 victory over Providence Christian to kick off the 2013 Sikes Memorial Tournament. Luke Hastings got the start on the mound and went five innings allowing only one run and striking out five. Blake Craft came on in the sixth and pitched two scoreless innings of relief to earn the save.

The Trojans jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the first inning with the big hit coming off of the bat of Austin Ingram. His three run home run scored Joey Denison and Tripp Blackmon who both reached on singles. Denison's single early in the inning scored Hunter Baggett who led off the inning with a single. Providence added a run in the second inning to draw to 4-1. CHHS extended the lead in the bottom of the sixth when Baggett doubled to drive to drive in Luke Hastings who reached on a single.  Baggett later scored on an error.

CHHS continues play in the Sikes Tournament tomorrow with a doubleheader against Northridge and Eufaula. Both games will be played at Troy University. The Northridge game begins at 3:00 and the Eufaula game begins at 7:00.
