LYNCHBURG, Tenn. — The Moore County High School baseball team lost to Cascade 12-2 on Friday, but still improved to 6-9 on the season last week with three straight wins. Victories came over Riverside Christian Academy, The Webb School and Cornersville.
Here’s a recap of recent action.
Cascade 12, MCHS 2
Cascade righty Hayden Edmondson was backed by a solid offensive effort and the Champions were able to claim a 12-2 win at Moore County on Friday evening.
Edmondson pitched four innings and claimed the win, allowing one hit, while striking out five.
Offensively, Cascade was led by the offensive efforts of Seth Gardner’s two-run homer in the first inning and was followed by Brady Parker’s solo shot.
After the four-spot in the top of the first, Cascade added three in the fourth inning, one in the fifth and four more in the sixth.
Moore County’s two runs came in the bottom of the sixth inning. The Raiders were limited to just three hits.
MCHS 2, Cornersville 1

Logan Burt helped Moore County take the lead for good in the eighth inning. After Clay Burnett was hit by a pitch, Burt singled, bringing home Burnett. Burt racked up two RBIs on two hits.
