Down 9-0 early to Williamson County power Ravenwood, Wilson Central’s baseball team battled back to a 9-all tie only to see the visitors break loose for nine more runs in an 18-9 loss Thursday morning in the Wilson County Invitational Tournament.

Ravenwood opened the top of the first with three extra base hits, two doubles and a triple, eventually scoring nine times.

The Wildcats (2-4) never blinked, however, answering with a single run in the bottom of the first, then three more in the second on a home homer by Dakota Byrd. Central pushed across five in the bottom of the third to knot the score at 9-9.

“We’ve got a ways to go defensively,” said WC head coach Anthony Ford. “I liked the way our guys stayed aggressive at the plate, but give Ravenwood credit -- they pounded the baseball.”

All told, Ravenwood racked up 18 hits against four Wilson Central pitchers.

Dylan Pengergast paced Central’s 10-hit attack with a two-for-four effort -- including a double.

WCIT notes -- No games were played Wednesday night at any of the four local venues after a heavy band of storms roared through just before 6 p.m.

“We had the tarp off, and both teams had taken infield,” said Mt. Juliet coach Mark Purvis. “Then the bottom fell out. It looked like we were going to get a tornado.”
