Corbin sweeps Yellow Jackets

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

CORBIN — The Corbin Redhounds knocked off Williamsburg for the second straight day, this time picking up a 14-2 win, improving to 3-1 in 50th District play.

The Redhounds racked up 14 runs on 11 hits, including a pair of six-run innings, while Taylor Combs pitched all five innings to earn the win.

Afterward Corbin coach Rob Ledington said he was pleased with the win, which puts the Redhounds in position to steal the No. 1 seed from South Laurel next week if they can pull off the sweep. Though the Redhounds have three games to play before Monday’s series with South Laurel gets underway, Ledington said he expected his team to be ready to play, especially considering what’s at stake.

“We did what we wanted to do here against Williamsburg and we have to take care of business next week,” Ledington said. “South Laurel is a good team and I’ve said all along that to be one of the best teams in the region.

“I think our guys will be up for the game because it’s South Laurel,” he added. “No matter what happens over the next three games, we’ll be ready and so will South Laurel. I don’t care if we were playing marbles against South Laurel, it would be a heated marble match, so that tells you what we expect.”

Corey Ledington got the scoring started for the Redhounds with an RBI triple that brought Dalton Terry around to score from second.

After Ledington scored on an error, Jake Metzger singled in a run to push the Redhounds’ lead to 3-0. Metzger and Austin Combs came in to score to extend the lead to 5-0 with no outs in the inning. Corbin closed out the scoring in the inning when Austin O’Neill singled in a run to push the gap to 6-0.

Corbin added a pair of runs in the second inning on hits by Taylor Combs, Nick Vorbeck and Austin Combs to extend the lead to 8-0.

After giving up a pair of runs in the top of the fourth inning thanks to a single, an error and a wild pitch, the Redhounds struck again in the bottom of the fourth inning.

Corbin scored six runs after Metzger made the first out of the inning, pushing the lead to 12 runs. Austin Combs closed out the scoring with a two-run single to make the score 14-2.

When all was said and done, Taylor Combs had allowed two runs on just two hits in the game, striking out six with just one walk given up.
