Southern League Baseball:  Tennessee designated hitter Kyle Schwarber racked up three more hits, including a mammoth solo home run, while starter Felix Pena tied a career-high with eight strikeouts, as the Smokies forced a rubber match on Friday with a 9-2 win over the Jackson Generals on Thursday night at The Ballpark at Jackson.  With the victory, the Smokies improved to 8-5 on the young season. That puts Tennessee in a tie with the Biloxi Shuckers, the Milwaukee Brewers’ Double-A affiliate, for the second-best record in the Southern League. With the win, Tennessee is now 1.5 games ahead of the Montgomery Biscuits, the Tampa Bay Rays’ Double-A affiliate, for first place in the North Division. Tonight’s loss dropped Jackson to 4-8 on the year.  Schwarber (3-6, 2 R, 2B, HR, 2 RBI), who tied a career-high with four hits on Wednesday night, followed up that performance with another impressive outing on Thursday. The Smokies’ DH collected his second straight multi-hit game including a RBI double off the wall in left-center field, as well as a moonshot solo blast to lead off the eighth inning.  The Smokies will return home to Kodak on Saturday, April 25, as they start a five-game series against the Chattanooga Lookouts, the Minnesota Twins Double-A affiliate. Single-game tickets, as well as multi-voucher and season ticket packages are still available, and can be purchased online at smokiesbaseball.com, or by calling the Smokies Ticket Office at 865-286-2300.

Smokies to be nationally televised:  Smokies Stadium will play host to a live nationally televised audience on Thursday, June 18, as the Tennessee Smokies’ matchup against the Mississippi Braves will be broadcast on CBS Sports Network as the network’s ‘Game of the Week’, as announced by Minor League Baseball. That evening’s contest against the M-Braves, the Double-A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves, is scheduled for a 7:05 p.m. start.  June 18’s contest was one of ten chosen to be televised live this summer on CBS Sports Network, which is available in 96 million homes nationwide on cable, satellite and video provider systems throughout the United States according to the network’s website. This marks the second season in which the network and Minor League Baseball have teamed up to showcase affiliated games after CBS Sports Network broadcast ten contests last season. The Smokies will not be the only Cubs affiliate to play host this year, as the Triple-A Iowa Cubs’ matchup with the Memphis RedBirds on July 16 will also be broadcast as the Game of the Week.

The Generals, meanwhile, fell to 4-7, though they continue to maintain a 2-1 lead in the series with game four set for Thursday evening.  Tennessee will look to even the series in the fourth game of their series on Thursday and force a rubber match, with RHP Felix Pena expected to get the start for the Smokies. The Generals meanwhile, are anticipated to send LHP Tyler Pike to the hill, with first pitch scheduled for 8:05 p.m. ET from Jackson.  Tennessee returns home on Saturday, April 25, to begin a five-game series with the Chattanooga Lookouts, the Double-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins.

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Sunday at Bristol…Matt Kenseth darted away from Jeff Gordon on an overtime restart Sunday night to claim victory at Bristol Motor Speedway, ending a fifty-one-race winless streak dating back to September 2013.  Kenseth becomes the first driver to win a Cup Series race from the pole position in “Thunder Valley” since Carl Edwards in 2008.  For the second year in a row, Bristol’s spring race – scheduled to be run during the day – was pushed to primetime by persistent rain.  It did get started at mid-afternoon, but only twenty-two laps were run before showers returned.  The green flag flew again shortly before 7 p.m. (ET) – some five-and-a-half hours after the scheduled starting time.  Edwards showed his strength Sunday night by leading four times for eighty-six laps in his bid for a second straight spring win at B-M-S.  But his night ended on a sour note when he got loose while racing side-by-side with Gordon and slid into the outside wall, which brought out the final caution and led to a twenty-fourth-place finish for the Roush Fenway driver.  That set Kenseth up to race for the win on the final restart, which he did after waiting out yet one more brief rain delay.  He got the jump on Gordon, who then lost a position to teammate Jimmie Johnson before settling for third place.  Ricky Stenhouse Junior and Ryan Newman completed the top five … Kenseth led four times for forty-seven laps in his Number-20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota, including the final thirty-four trips around the Tennessee half-mile … Sunday’s race included twenty-one lead changes among just six drivers. 

NASCAR Xfinity Series Saturday at Bristol…Joey Logano rolled to a dominating victory Saturday at Bristol Motor Speedway, leading all three hundred laps en route to his twenty-third career win and second of the season.  The Team Penske driver started from the outside of the front row, got the jump on pole sitter Erik Jones at the drop of the green flag and kept his Number-22 Ford in front the rest of the afternoon.  The margin of victory was a little more than one second over rookie Daniel Suarez with Chris Buescher, Jones and Ty Dillon completing the top five.  Defending series champion Chase Elliott finished sixth.  Logano’s victory marked the fifth time in seven races this season that a Sprint Cup Series regular has won in the X-FINITY Series.  The three hundred laps led by Logano are a series record and this is Team Penske’s second straight win on the Tennessee half-mile.  Ryan Blaney had driven the “22” to victory last summer in NASCAR’s most recent visit to “Thunder Valley” … Logano’s win was an early birthday present for crew chief Greg Erwin, who turned 45 on Sunday … Buescher’s third-place race finish enabled him to pull into a first-place tie in the X-FINITY Series standings, sharing the spot with Dillon.  They lead third-place Elliott by twelve points.

Southern League baseball:  The Tennessee Smokies’ scheduled series finale against the Pensacola Blue Wahoos on Sunday afternoon has been postponed due to rain. A makeup date for the contest has not yet been determined however the Smokies are slated to play a five-game series in Pensacola May 5-9.  Fans with ticket’s for today’s scheduled contest may redeem their tickets for any remaining 2015 Smokies home game. The club’s full rainout policy can be found online at www.smokiesbaseball.com.  The Smokies will now travel to Jackson, Tennessee, to begin a five-game series with the Jackson Generals, the Double-A affiliate of the Seattle Mariners. First game of that series is set for Monday, April 20, with first pitch scheduled for 8:05 p.m. ET at The Ballpark in Jackson. Starting pitchers for the opening game of the series have not yet been determined.   Following that five-game set, Tennessee will return home to Smokies Stadium to begin a five-game set with the Chattanooga Lookouts, the Double-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, with the opening game of the series scheduled to begin at 7:05 p.m. ETon Saturday, April 25. It’s the second Giveaway Saturday of the season, with the first 1,000 kids 12 and under receiving a Smokies Superhero Cape as part of Superhero Night. Both Green Arrow and The Flash are scheduled to be on hand to pose for pictures, and perhaps even show off their first pitch skills.

Southern League:  The Smokies held off a late-inning Blue Wahoos charge, while first baseman Dan Vogelbach reached base three times and left fielder Pin-Chieh Chen threw out the potential tying run at home plate in Tennessee’s 5-4 triumph over Pensacola 5-4 in front of 3,323 fans on Opening Night at Smokies Stadium.  The series-opening victory improved the Smokies’ record to a 4-2 overall mark in 2015, while the Blue Wahoos fell to 1-4. The win in the club’s home opener also gives Tennessee a three-game winning streak that dates back to April 12.  Next up for the Smokies and Blue Wahoos is a Friday night doubleheader, with first pitch of the twinbill opener set for 5:30 p.m. ET. Tennessee is expected to give the ball to RHP Ivan Pineyro (0-0, 6.75) in game one, while Pensacola is scheduled to send out RHP Daniel Wright (0-1, 20.25). LHP Jeffry Antigua (NR) is expected to get the nod in the nightcap for the Smokies, while RHP Tim Adleman (0-1, 1.50) is slated to take the hill for the Blue Wahoos.  It’s the first Remote Area Medical Friday Fireworks night, with post-game fireworks courtesy of Pepsi, Coors Light, Dollywood’s Splash Country, WVLT and the Knoxville News-Sentinel. It’s also the first College Colors Night of the season, with spring football in full swing in Tennessee. Fans are encouraged to dress in their favorite college colors at the game, with fight songs from various schools playing throughout the evening.  Tickets for that game and the rest of the five-game homestand are on sale, and can be purchased online at smokiesbaseball.com, or by calling the Smokies Ticket Office at 865-286-2300. Multi-game voucher packs and season tickets are also still available.

OSHS names new football coach:  Larry Green, who has spent the past nine seasons at the middle school level, has been promoted to coach of Oliver Springs High School football team.  The announcement was made Monday, just about a week after the departure of Wiley Brackett, who resigned after nine seasons on April 6.  It’s the first high school football coaching job for Green, who compiled a 47-33 record during his nine middle school seasons.  He takes over a program that finished 3-7 last year, but made a run to the Class 2A semifinals in 2011.  Green told the News-Sentinel that he has retained the staff from the previous regime, including defensive coordinator Matt Green and offensive coordinator Jason Hammock.  

ORHS super-soph offered again:  Oak Ridge High School sophomore wide receiver Tee Higgins has picked up another major scholarship offer.  Higgins, who has also already been offered by Tennessee, LSU, Florida State and others, received a scholarship offer from reigning national champions Ohio State on Tuesday.  Higgins—who is also an outstanding basketball player—is rated a four-star football prospect and the 38th overall player nationally in the 2017 class by 247 Sports. He’s listed as the No. 3 prospect in Tennessee, and top-ranked wide receiver.

Southern League baseball:  Smokies starting pitcher Frank Batista, in his first professional start since 2010, dominated the Mississippi Braves, holding the home team to just three hits over six innings, while 3B Christian Villanueva cranked two home runs as Tennessee took the rubber match of the season opening series, 8-1 at Trustmark Park on Monday afternoon.  The victory for the Smokies (3-2, 3-2) gave Tennessee its first series victory on the road at Trustmark Park since April 8-12, 2010. Coincidentally, that was also the last time the Smokies began their season in Pearl, Miss. With the loss, the Mississippi Braves (2-3, 2-3) dropped back below .500.  Batista (6 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 SO), who entered the 2015 season as the Smokies all-time leader in saves with 53, picked up the victory in his first professional start since he took the loss as a member of the Full-A Peoria Chiefs on September 5, 2010. After allowing a run in the bottom of the first inning, the right-hander sat down 15 of the next 16 Braves he faced, including 12 in a row to end his outing.  Villanueva (2-3, 3 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 2 BB), who collected two hits and three RBI on Sunday, once again made his presence felt at the plate. In addition to stellar defense, Villanueva unleashed two massive home runs, a solo shot in the sixth and a two-run blast in the eighth, in the victory. It was the fourth multi-home run game in Villanueva’s seven-year career and his first since he slammed two as a member of the Triple-A Iowa Cubs on May 21 of last year.  Right-hander Corey Black (1-0, 1.80 ERA), who picked up the win for the Smokies on Opening Day, is projected to make the start for Tennessee in their home opener on Wednesday afternoon. The Pensacola Blue Wahoos, the Double-A affiliate of the Cincinnati Reds, are expected to counter with the top prospect in their organization, right-hander Robert Stephenson (0-1, 4.76 ERA).  The Pilot Pre-Game Show will kick off the broadcast at 11:15 a.m. ET on the TuneIn Radio app and SmokiesBaseball.com, leading up to a11:30 a.m. ET first pitch at Smokies Stadum. Opening night will be the very next evening on Thursday, April 16, with first pitch scheduled for 7:05 p.m. at Smokies Stadium.  Single-game tickets, as well as multi-voucher and season ticket packages are still available, and can be purchased online at smokiesbaseball.com, or by calling the Smokies Ticket Office at 865-286-2300.

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Saturday at Texas…Jimmie Johnson led a quartet of Hendrick Motorsports cars with top-ten finishes Saturday night at Texas Motor Speedway, winning his second consecutive race on the mile-and-a-half Fort Worth oval.  Johnson led a race-high 128 laps, including the final fourteen – beating runner-up Kevin Harvick to the checkered flag by one-point-one seconds.  The three other Hendrick drivers finished third … that was Dale Earnhardt Junior, seventh … for Jeff Gordon, and eighth … Kasey Kahne.  The victory enabled Johnson to extend his recent mastery of T-M-S that now shows four victories in the last six races dating back to November 2012.  Coupled with his win there during last fall’s post-season Chase, Johnson is the first driver with back-to-back Cup Series victories in “The Lone Star State” since Denny Hamlin swept both races in 2010.  Joey Logano finished fourth on Saturday with Brad Keselowski completing the top five.  Pole sitter Kurt Busch led twice for forty-five laps and finished fourteenth, one of twenty-five drivers running on the lead lap with Johnson at the finish … With Johnson’s victory Saturday night, Chevrolet is now three-for-three on mile-and-a-half intermediate ovals this season with the six-time champion also winning in Atlanta and Harvick victorious in Las Vegas.  Overall, the streak is six going back to the end of the 2014 season … Johnson’s Number-48 Chevrolet was steady and strong throughout the race, but it was a four-tire pit stop on the final caution that helped him eventually chase down Jamie McMurray to grab his ninth – and final – lead of the night. 

NASCAR X-Finity Series Friday at TexasFor the second year in a row, it’s an 18-year-old rising star who claimed victory at Texas Motor Speedway.  In 2014, Chase Elliott held off a pack of Sprint Cup Series veterans to record his first career win.  Friday night, Erik Jones took his turn in the spotlight – beating Brad Keselowski and Dale Earnhardt Junior to the checkered flag, and notching his first X-FINITY Series victory in just his ninth start.  Jones qualified on the pole and led a race-high seventy-nine laps, including the final fifty trips around the Fort Worth oval.  His margin of victory over runner-up Keselowski was one-point-six seconds with Earnhardt, Regan Smith and Austin Dillon completing the top five.  Darrell Wallace Junior was the highest-finishing rookie, in sixth place … Texas native Brennan Poole, whose hometown is The Woodlands, turned in a respectable thirteenth-place finish one day before his 24th birthday – making just his third career X-FINITY Series start and the first on his “home track.”

After third baseman Christian Villanueva drove in Tennessee’s first run of the season with a bases loaded walk in the third, Vogelbach ripped a single to left. Centerfielder Albert Almora scored and Schwarber came across on a throwing error by Braves’ left fielder Matt Lipka to make it 3-0, Smokies.  Right-hander Ivan Pineyro will get the start for the Smokies Friday against fellow right-hander Tyrell Jenkins. First pitch at Trustmark Park is scheduled for 8:00 p.m. ET.

Violations lead to changes in Harriman hoops:  Harriman High School is searching for a new boys’ basketball coaching staff after Head Coach Wesley Jones resigned and two assistants were removed from their positions following an investigation into the program by the school and the TSSAA because of violations involving AAU basketball.  Harriman self-reported the violations of the basketball sports calendar and recommended the penalties, which also included suspending spring practice for the boys’ program this school year.  Assistant coaches Quentin Young and Darren Payne both coach AAU teams during the offseason, which isn’t illegal as long as their rosters don’t include players from a coach’s regular-season team.  The TSSAA says Young had impermissible contact in an AAU coaching capacity with Harriman players during four practices and six games.  Payne coached Harriman players in three practices and three games, including one tournament, according to TSSAA.  The self-imposed ban on spring practice includes weight training, conditioning and the use of open facilities.  The TSSAA didn’t take any further action and Harriman was not fined, placed on probation banned from the postseason because of the penalties.  Jones resigned last week and school officials say he had prior knowledge of the violations.  The assistants were officially notified after the school received a letter from TSSAA on Tuesday.

Oliver Springs’ football coach resigns:  Oliver Springs High School head football coach Wiley Brackett has resigned in order to spend more time with his family.  The 38-year-old Brackett compiled a 42-57 record in nine seasons on the Bobcats’ sideline and led the team to its deepest playoff appearance, a 2011 run to the state 2A semifinals.  A search is already underway for his successor.

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Sunday at Martinsville…Denny Hamlin steered Toyota into Victory Lane for the first time in six races this season, leading the final twenty-eight laps Sunday afternoon at Martinsville Speedway. Hamlin grabbed his final lead of the day from Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Matt Kenseth and kept the Number-11 Camry in front the rest of the way, holding off a late charge from Brad Keselowski to notch his twenty-fifth career Cup Series win and fifth on the Virginia half-mile. Keselowski pulled right up on Hamlin’s rear bumper on the final lap and lightly tapped him. Hamlin wiggled slightly but kept the wheels straight and beat his Team Penske rival to the checkered flag by eighteen one-hundredths of a second. Pole sitter Joey Logano finished third. Kenseth took fourth place and David Ragan was fifth – giving Joe Gibbs Racing three of the top five finishing positions … Kevin Harvick led a race-high 154 laps and placed eighth, ending his streak of finishing either first or second in eight straight races dating back to last season. Harvick did hold onto the top spot in the standings, now with a twenty-four-point lead over Logano heading into the Easter break … 2014 X-FINITY Series champion Chase Elliott made his Sprint Cup Series debut in the Number-25 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet. He started twenty-seventh and placed thirty-eighth, running at the finish but more than seventy laps down to Hamlin after a pair of early-race incidents forced him to the garage area for repairs. Elliott is running a handful of Cup races this season in advance of 2016, when he’ll replace Jeff Gordon behind the wheel of the Number-24 Chevrolet. 

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series Saturday at Martinsville...Joey Logano charged past race leader Matt Crafton following an overtime restart Saturday and kept his Number- 29 Brad Keselowski Racing Ford in front the rest of the way, notching his first career Camping World Truck Series victory in his seventh start. Logano led a race-high 150 laps after starting from the pole, beating runner-up Crafton to the finish by forty-three one-hundredths of a second. Rookie Erik Jones, Johnny Sauter and Tyler Reddick completed the top five. The runner-up finish by Crafton enabled him to climb into first place in the earlyseason standings, now two points in front of Reddick … Logano’s victory snapped Toyota’s five-race Martinsville winning streak that stretched back to October 2012. It’s also Ford’s first Truck Series win on the Virginia half-mile since Ricky Craven was victorious in October 2005 … Saturday’s race included fourteen lead changes among five drivers … There were nine cautions for sixty-one laps, nearly a quarter of the race distance.

NASCAR SPRINT CUP SERIES SUNDAY AT CALIFORNIA…Brad Keselowski charged past race leader Kurt Busch following the second overtime restart Sunday at Auto Club Speedway, snapping Kevin Harvick’s two-race winning streak and notching his first victory of the 2015 season. Keselowski’s last-lap pass brought him his only lead of the day en route to his seventeenth career victory but first on the two-mile Southern California oval. It was a runner-up finish for Harvick, who has now opened the season with five straight finishes of first or second – a NASCAR record. Busch started from the pole and grabbed third place, leading a race-high sixty-five-laps in his second start after serving a NASCAR suspension. Paul Menard and Ryan Newman completed the top five with Dale Earnhardt Junior sixth, giving Chevrolet five of the top six finishing positions. They were all lined up behind the Number-2 Team Penske Ford, which carried Keselowski to his first Sprint Cup Series victory since October of last year at Talladega Superspeedway. Two late cautions for debris sent Sunday’s race nine laps past its scheduled distance … Harvick’s second-place finish enabled him to extend his lead over Joey Logano to twenty-eight points in the standings with Martin Truex Junior, Earnhardt and Keselowski rounding out the top five. Logano finished seventh and Truex eighth in Sunday’s race, which included nineteen lead changes among nine drivers … Sunday’s victory was just the second at A-C-S as a car owner for Roger Penske, whose only other victory out there came with Rusty Wallace behind the wheel in 2001. 

NASCAR X-FINITY SERIES SATURDAY AT CALIFORNIA…The early-season dominance of Sprint Cup Series drivers in X-FINITY Series races continued Saturday with Kevin Harvick’s victory at Auto Club Speedway. It’s the fourth time in five races this year that a Cup Series competitor has taken the trip to Victory Lane … and twice, now, for Harvick. He led a race-high one hundred laps in the Number-88 Junior Motorsports Chevrolet, including the final sixty-four, beating runner-up Brendan Gaughan by more than three seconds. Pole sitter Erik Jones, defending series champion Chase Elliott and Chris Buescher completed the top five. For Harvick, Saturday’s win was the forty-sixth of his career but first in nineteen tries on the two-mile Fontana, California, oval … With his fifth-place finish, Buescher has pulled within five points of leader Ty Dillon in the standings. Dillon started sixteenth, failed to lead a lap and finished fourteenth in Saturday’s race – one

NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Sunday at Phoenix…Defending Sprint Cup Series champion Kevin Harvick shredded the field Sunday at Phoenix International Raceway, notching his fourth straight victory on the Arizona oval. He started from the pole and led a race-high 224 laps, including the final seventeen. Harvick, who’s now won four of his last six starts overall dating back to last season, pulled away from Jamie McMurray on the final restart of the day and cruised to his thirtieth career victory. McMurray finished second, a little more than a second behind at the checkered flag. Ryan Newman placed third with Kasey Kahne and Kurt Busch completing the top five. The race included just eight lead changes among four drivers: Harvick, McMurray, Brad Keselowski and Joey Logano. Harvick’s four-race winning streak at P-I-R began in November 2013. He swept both races there last season and was back in Gatorade Victory Lane again Sunday afternoon. Harvick has now finished either first or second in his last seven starts going back to last fall’s race in Texas … Sunday marked the first start of the season for Busch, one of Harvick’s teammates at Stewart-Haas Racing. He was forced to sit out the first three races while serving a NASCAR suspension. He comes away from the weekend with a top-five finish after qualifying eighth on Friday … Keselowski led fifty-two laps en route to a sixth-place finish. Logano started on the front row alongside Harvick and placed eighth. He led thirty-five laps, including the first twenty-five of the race – which was slowed by caution ten times for fifty-three laps. 

NASCAR X-Finity Series Saturday at Phoenix…Joey Logano delivered Team Penske’s second straight X-FINITY Series win at Phoenix International Raceway on Saturday afternoon with a dominating performance on the one-mile desert oval. He started from the pole and led all but twenty-four of the two hundred laps in posting his twenty-second series win and second at P-I-R. Logano, following teammate Brad Keselowski’s victory there last fall, led the final sixty-five laps and beat runnerup Matt Kenseth to the checkered flag by two-point-nine seconds. Kevin Harvick finished third and Austin Dillon was fourth as Sprint Cup Series drivers swept the top four spots. Erik Jones placed fifth, subbing for the injured Kyle Busch. The top three drivers in the early-season standings held their positions. Ty Dillon finished sixth on Saturday and stretched his lead to fourteen points over Chris Buescher, who placed fourteenth. Daytona race winner Ryan Reed finished thirteenth to hold third place in the standings.

TSSAA approves reclassification, realignments:  Thursday, the TSSAA Board of Control finalized its realignment of the state’s high school football teams and there are plenty of changes affecting our local teams.  The state’s new Class 6A will be made up of the 31 largest schools in the state by enrollment, except for Maryville, which successfully petitioned the state to move from 5A to 6A.  All 32 6A teams will qualify for the postseason while the remaining Division I classifications will send the top four finishers in each Region to the postseason.  The realignment will remain in effect for at least the next two academic years, beginning in 2015.  Locally, the Clinton Dragons are in the new Region 3-5A with Campbell County, Oak Ridge, Farragut, Karns and Lenoir City.  Anderson County has moved to Class 4A and will play in Region 2 with Fulton, Carter, Catholic, Central and Union County.  The list of regions served by this radio station is below, with local teams in italics.
