Easy Goins

Kevin Goins pitches complete game while striking out five batters


By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

HILTON HEAD, S.C. — The Corbin Redhounds have put together a 1-1 record so far during their stay in South Carolina.

The Redhounds (6-3) came from behind on Tuesday to defeat Walhalla, S.C., 6-5, but dropped a 7-0 decision to Hilton Head, S.C. on Monday.

“We’ve played two very good teams,” Corbin coach Rob Ledington said. “I’m really pleased with the way we have played down here so far. Hilton Head is a great club and so is Walhalla. The teams we will play down here have a combined record of 27-3, so we’re going against good competition.

“We didn’t play a bad game against Hilton Head, they just did a good job hitting the ball and getting some timely hits,” he added. “We did a better job today putting the bat on the ball and scoring some runs. I’m glad we responded with a win today.”

Tuesday’s Game

Corbin 6, Walhalla, S.C. 5

The Redhounds jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning before seeing Walhalla fight back to take a 5-3 lead into the bottom of the seventh inning — that’s when Corbin put together an impressive comeback with two outs.

Walhalla retired the first two Redhound batters of the seventh inning before seeing Zach Farley reach base with a walk while Derek Terry followed with a single. Taylor Combs reached base on an error, which scored Farley to make the score 5-4.

Corbin then took advantage of a passed ball, which scored Terry while a throw to home plate was off target and went into the infield and TC Collins (was courtesy runner for Taylor Combs) raced home to score the game-winning run.

“That’s something we practice on,” Ledington said of his team’s base running. “We try to cover every base and I have to give credit to coach Cody Philpot for sending the runners and to the runners for hustling.

“That scored two runs for us and won the game,” he added. “They got two quick outs on us and for us to battle back against a good club like them was big.”

Terry led Corbin with a 3-for-4 effort at the plate and he also scored two runs while Taylor Combs, Jacob Metzger and Austin O’Neill each had a hit apiece in the win.

“Derek had a good day hitting the ball and defensively,” Ledington said.

Kevin Goins tossed his third complete game of the season. He allowed six hits, four earned runs and struck out five batters while improving to 2-1 on the season.

Monday’s Game

Hilton Head, S.C. 7, Corbin 0

Hilton Head scored three runs in the first inning and never looked back during its seven-run victory over Corbin.

The Redhounds finished the game with five hits, but were shut out for the first time this season.

“Hilton Head is a very good team,” Ledington said. “We just couldn’t get any hits strung together. We played fairly well, but we just couldn’t score any runs.”

After collecting six hits and three runs off Corbin pitcher Chad Brown in the first inning, Hilton Head didn’t score again until putting up three more runs in the fifth inning while adding another run in the sixth.

Brown settled down after the first inning and scattered only two hits during the final four innings he pitched.

Terry and Austin Combs each finished the game with two hits apiece.
