The Creek Wood baseball Red Hawks made history on Wednesday night,beating in-county rivals the Dickson County Cougars 3-2 at CWHS. The comeback win was the first ever for Creek Wood over DCHS in a varsity baseball game, and keeps the young Red Hawks on their upward trend after sweeping Cheatham County for their first two wins of the year last week.
The 2012 Good Day to Play Tournament could not have asked for a better afternoon to start play on, With temperatures in the seventies and barely a cloud in the sky Dickson and Creek Wood started a weekend-long tourney at both schools.
Creek Wood faced Sycamore at 5 and opened the weekend in fine fashion picking up a 9-2 win in seven innings. Kyle Neblett went the whole way for the Redhawks allowing seven hits, two earned runs and struck out five on the night.
It wasn’t until the fifth inning that Creek Wood finally broke it open against opposing starter Dalton Garrett who wouldn’t get an out in the fifth. Leading 2-1, third baseman Aaron Lee lead the inning off with a bunt single. He advanced to second on an error when Kevin Salewsky flied to center and Kevin Heath dropped the routine fly ball. Neblett helped himself with a gapper to right center that would plate Lee. Two batters later, after an intentional walk to Wyatt Douchane, Garrett would walk Dalton Nash to score another Creek Wood run. The Red Hawks would pick up four more runs in the inning to take a 9-1 lead.
Sycamore would score again in the top of the sixth but six straight fly balls would end their chances and give Creek Wood a win on day one of the Good Day to Play Tournament. The Red Hawks will play Cookeville Friday at 7:15 and wrap up the weekend on Saturday with two games; Greenbrier at 1:15 and Rossview at 3:30.
Dickson beat Greenbrier 2-0 for a win in their first game as well and will play Dyer County Friday at 7:15 with two games on Saturday; Sycamore at 1:15 and Harpeth at 3:30.
