Bill Lusk | WVOW Sports


KINGSPORT, TN   Jimmy Phipps and Chandler Myers limited Chapmanville to five singles and a three-run second inning was too much for the Tigers to overcome as Tennessee High defeated Chapmanville 5-1 ending the Tigers three game winning streak Thursday evening at Dobyns Bennett High School.


Phipps went five innings allowing one run on five hits, striking out two and walking two to earn the win. Myers threw two hitless innings of relief and struck out six.


Cainan Myers had two hits and one RBI and Preston Feagins and Cooper Harris each had one hit and one RBI for the Vikings, who improved to 11-3 with the win.


Braylon Moore allowed five runs on eight hits, striking out two and walking five in five innings on the mound in a losing effort for the Tigers. Ian Plumley struck out one in one inning of hitless relief.


Tennessee scored all the runs they would need in the second inning when they crossed the plate three times. Carter Keesee started the scoring for the Vikings when he scored on an error.


The Vikings got a pair of run-scoring singles off the bats of Harris and Feagina to surge ahead 3-0.


Chapmanville got an RBI groundout from Plumley to score Andrew Farley and cut the deficit to 3-1 after four innings.


The Tigers would only muster one hit and one baserunner over the final three innings as the Vikings added to their lead with two runs in the bottom of the fifth.


Bryson Hutton scored on an error to make it 4-1 and Myers produced an RBI single to give Tennessee a 5-1 lead.


Myers struck out the side in the sixth and seventh inning in relief of Phipps to shut the door on the Tigers and preserve the victory for the Vikings.


Joey Canterbury, Farley, Corey Johnson, Gunner Lucas and Moore each had a single for Tigers. Farley scored the Tigers lone run and Plumley drove in one run.


Chapmanville, who fell to 3-6 with the loss, is back in action Friday evening against Daniel Boone (TN) at 5 p.m. at Daniel Boone High School.
