Christian Heritage’s middle school baseball team outscored opponents 27-9 in a trio of wins during the past week.

At home on Saturday, the Lions scored six runs in the first three innings on the way to a 12-2 victory over Chattanooga Christian School.

Zach Gentry was the winning pitcher, allowing one run on four hits and two walks while striking out three in four innings of work.

In Monday’s 4-3 win over Baylor, Gentry had a pair of extra-base hits and scored in the fifth to put the Lions ahead for good.

In an 11-4 win over the Chattanooga Patriots on Tuesday, Jaret Staten had six RBIs on three hits and Jack Ridley was the winning pitcher.

Ridley allowed no earned runs, struck out five and held the Patriots hitless in 3 1/3 innings on the mound.

Dalton 7, North Whitfield 2: J.P. Tighe picked up the win on the mound and went 2-for-3 with an RBI double and a two-run homer as the Cougars (10-1-1) won Monday at Edwards Park in Varnell.

Tighe allowed two hits and struck out nine as he went the distance in the five-inning game.

Harrison Hughes was 3-for-3 with a double and three runs, while Cade Gabriel and Justin Ketchum each went 2-for-2 — Gabriel’s hits included a home run — as part of the Cougars’ 11-hit tally.

Eli Chumley and Eli Douglas had the hits for the Pioneers.
