Lady Redhounds cruise past Knox Central, 13-4

CORBIN — By John Stepp / For The Times Tribune

KNOX CENTRAL — An eight-run sixth inning propelled the Corbin Lady Redhounds to a 13-4 win over 13th Region foe Knox Central on Thursday. The win brings the Lady Redhounds’ record to 4-1 versus regional opponents and gives them some confidence heading into the meat of their schedule.

“We played a very tough schedule early on and we took some lumps,” said Corbin coach Chris Hart. “Now that we are getting into our region schedule, we’re seeing it start to pay off a little bit.”

Despite the 13-4 score, Knox Central was no easy opponent for the Lady Redhounds. Corbin led 5-4 before pulling away late in the top of the sixth. Hart credits the big win to his players’ patience at the plate, resulting in seven hits, eight runs batted in and 10 walks.

“It took us a little while to get started. I thought we hit the ball well, but it took some innings for us to adjust to their pitcher,” Hart said. “Our batters were patient and made their pitchers work a little bit. We didn’t swing at bad pitches tonight and that is something I’m happy about.”

Corbin also had a tremendous effort on the mound from pitchers Hannah Hart and Megan Greene. Hart completed six innings for the Lady Redhounds, allowing just one hit, two runs, and striking out 11 batters. Greene finished an inning of work, giving up one hit and one earned run.

“We started out with Hannah and we had a long inning there where we were on offense, so we brought in Megan. We ended up going back to Hannah to finish the game,” said Hart. “I thought both pitchers did a great job for us.”

Corbin raced to a 4-0 lead through the top of the fourth inning. Callie Schoolcraft, Lindsey Barton, Sydney Reynolds, and Whitley Gatliff all scored runs for the Lady Redhounds during that stretch. Knox Central added two runs in the bottom of the fourth to make the score 4-2. Corbin scored once in the fifth and the Lady Panthers scored two more runs, to cut the lead to 5-4, heading into the top of the sixth.

Barton led the Lady Redhounds at the plate with a double and two RBI.
