Colonels beat Williamsburg in six-inning rout

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

WILLIAMSBURG — The Whitley County Colonels scored in every inning of Monday’s 17-7 win over Williamsburg, improving to 2-3 in 50th District play with today’s game left to potentially decide the No. 2 and 3 seeds.

If the Colonels can get a win against Williamsburg today, accompanied by a Corbin loss to South Laurel, they’ll end in a tie with the Redhounds for second, forcing a coin toss.

Whitley County coach Kyle Adams said heading into today’s game, he told his team that all that matters is what the Colonels can do to control that situation, which is win.

“We have to take care of the things that we have control of,” Adams said. “I told our kids to just go out and play baseball and let the chips fall where they may.

“If we earn a win we at least put ourselves in position should Corbin lose to South Laurel,” he added. “In baseball that’s really all you can do and when you focus on the task at hand, you never know what can happen.”

Whitley County jumped ahead 1-0 in the first inning and pushed that gap to 5-0 heading into the bottom of the second. The Yellow Jackets plated a pair of runs to trim the deficit to 5-2 to close out the second inning.

The Colonels scored a run in the third and three more in the fourth to extend the lead to 9-2, while a four-run fifth inning made Williamsburg’s hole even deeper at 13-2.

The Yellow Jackets responded with three runs in the bottom of the fifth, cutting the Whitley County lead to 13-5, extending the game for another inning.

Adams and company answered with four runs of their own to make the score 17-5, meaning Williamsburg had to score at least three runs to keep the game going after the sixth inning.

A two-run sixth was not enough as the Yellow Jackets fell to 0-5 on the season in 50th District play with only today’s game against Whitley County remaining.

The Colonels’ Corey Crisologo was 3-for-4 in the game with three RBIs and a run scored, while Casey Crisologo finished the game 3-for-5 with three runs scored and a pair of RBIs.  

Whitley County’s Tilmon Jackson was also 3-for-5 in the game with four RBIs and two runs scored as all nine Colonels’ starters recorded at least one hit in the game.

Steven Watson got the win for the Colonels after pitching five innings, giving up six runs (three earned) on four hits and striking out four.

Williamsburg’s Ethan Wilson was tagged with the loss after giving up 13 runs (11 earned) on 13 hits to go along with three walks and a pair of strikeouts.

The Yellow Jackets’ Logan Hamblin (2-for-4) and Tanner Rains (2-for-4) were the only two batters with multiple hits in the game for Williamsburg.

Today’s game between the same two teams is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. at Whitley County High School.

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
    To be honest, it’s been used way too much for a long time and I’m just as guilty as the next guy.
