Sunday, April 14, 2019

Soddy-Daisy capped its appearance in the first New Balance Chattanooga Baseball Classic on Saturday with a 10-0 rout of Signal Mountain, highlighted by the combined five-inning no-hitter thrown by Zane Guess and Garrett Dent.

On Friday, the Trojans’ Chris Branam gave up one hit over 6 2/3 innings in a 1-0 win over the Gwinnett Barons. Guess got the final out in that game.

Soddy-Daisy, which has won five of its last six games, went 3-1 in the classic and won the championship, according to coach Jim Higgins.

The Trojans (14-8) scored 30 runs and their pitching gave up only six and posted two shutouts.

Guess worked the first 3 2/3 innings against the Eagles on Saturday, retiring nine of 10 batters and yielded one walk. He struck out seven and after the walk fanned three straight and set down the final six.

Dent recorded the final four outs, striking out two and walked two. Dent retired six of eight, giving up a walk and one Eagle reached on the Trojans’ lone error.

Guess threw 44 pitches, 28 for strikes. Thirteen of Dent’s 25 offerings found the strike zone.

The Trojans got the only runs they needed for the win with three in the first inning.

Jacob Jennings had a run-scoring single, Harrison Travis a sacrifice fly and Seth Coffelt an RBI single.

Coffelt reached on an error in the third and scored on Guess’ RBI double to push the lead to 4-0.

Hayden Maynor laced an RBI single and then scored on a groundout.

In the fifth inning, Guess walked and came home on an error, Travis walked with the bases loaded and Coffelt ended the game with a two-run single.

Dent went 3 for 4, drove in three runs and scored three. Coffelt was 2 for 4 with RBIs.
