South Laurel improves to 4-0 in district play

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

SOUTH LAUREL — After Monday’s win over the Whitley County Colonels, South Laurel coach Wynn Harris said Tuesday’s game was even more important because a win would mean his squad could control its own destiny in the district race.

The Cardinals came through in a big way Tuesday, picking up a 10-0 win on the heels of four innings of hitless baseball by starter Austin Vigeant. Quinton Barnett allowed one hit in relief to close things out for South Laurel.

After the win, Harris said he was pleased with his team’s effort and said after improving to 4-0 in district play, the next order of business is to get ready for next week’s series with Corbin.

“We knew this was an important game because we wanted to be in the driver’s seat heading into the last district series against Corbin,” Harris said. “Our kids came out and hit the ball well and played good defense and we were able to get the win.

“I know Corbin has a good team and they’re going to be ready to play next week,” he added. “We have to do what we can to make sure our kids are ready as well.”

Trey Martin led the way at the plate for South Laurel with a double and two RBIs in his 2-for-3 effort. Alex Sears was also 2-for-3 with an RBI and two runs scored.

The Cardinals took a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning thanks to an RBI single by Sears, an RBI double by Martin and an error by the Colonels Tilmon Jackson that allowed Daniel Neal to score.

South Laurel banged out six straight hits to start the third inning, which eventually led to a six-run inning to put the Cardinals on top 9-0 heading into the top of the fourth inning.

Neal scored from third on a sac-fly by Martin to put the Cardinals on top 10-0 before sealing the win in the top of the fifth inning.
