Trojans Sweep Rehobeth

Charles Henderson returned home for the first time in over a week and picked up two wins over Rehobeth Tuesday night.

Chase Smartt's walk-off double scored Hunter Baggett in the bottom of the seventh inning of game one to give the Trojans a 5-4 victory. Smartt finished the game 2-4 with two RBI and Joey Denison also added two hits and an RBI. Rehobeth jumped out to a 4-0 advantage but the Trojans answered in the bottom of the third when Blake Craft led off with a single. Morgan Shaver bunted Craft over and Baggett reached on an error. Tripp Blackmon, Smartt, and Denison each singled and drove in a run to bring the score to 4-3. CHHS tied the game in the fifth when Joey Denison singled and eventually scored on Luke Hastings' sacrifice fly to center field. The score remained 4-4 until Smartt's double in the final frame.

Houston Mabray got the start on the mound and went five innings striking out three. Xavius Burden pitched two innings of relief without giving up a hit to earn the win.

In game two the Trojans pounded the Rebels by a score of 13-1. Blackmon went all five innings on the mound striking out three. CHHS scored one run in the first on Denison's sacrifice fly to score Baggett, then put the game out of reach with seven runs in the second inning. John Johnson got the inning going with a single and was followed by a single Burden. Blackmon, Smartt, Denison, and Hastings each drove in runs during the inning. The final runs for CHHS came in the third inning on a three run blast from Denison.

The Trojans begin area play Friday at Bullock County at 3:00.
