Whitley gets even

Colonels even district record at 1-1 with 7-1 win over Corbin

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons /  Staff Writer

WHITLEY COUNTY — The Whitley County Colonels took advantage of a solid effort on the mound by senior hurler Alex Rose, picking up a 7-1 win over the Corbin Redhounds Tuesday.

Rose pitched a complete game, allowing one run on three hits while striking out seven Redhound batters to help even the season series with their 50th District rivals after dropping a 9-3 decision Monday.

After questioning his team’s will and ability to compete Monday, Whitley County coach Kyle Adams said Tuesday he was pleased with the Colonels’ effort.

“We’re a pretty good team when we don’t kick the ball around and when our pitchers aren’t hitting four or five batters in a row,” Adams said. “This was a good effort from the kids all the way around.

“We were aggressive on the bases and we capitalized on some of their mistakes,” he added. “And we got a great effort from one of our seniors on the mound in Alex Rose. When you have a kid that tells you he’s not coming out of a game when you walk out to the mound, that’s the kind of determination you want to see out of your kids.”

The Colonels took an early 1-0 lead in the first inning after Rose was hit by a pitch to start the home half of the inning and eventually scored on a sacrifice off the bat of Casey Crisologo.

Whitley County extended the lead in the bottom of the third after the inning started with an error, a hit batter and a walk that loaded the bases. Corey Crisologo came in to score on a ground ball back to the pitcher to make the score 3-0.

Tilmon Jackson stole home to make the score 4-0 and Alex Lewis scored from third on a wild pitch to put the Colonels on top 4-0 at the end of three innings.

The Redhounds trimmed the lead to 4-1 in the top of the fifth, but failed to get any closer despite loading the bases to start the inning. The lone run of the inning came when J.B. Chadwell scored from third on a wild pitch. Rose wiggled his way out of trouble by striking out Jake Metzger and Austin Combs to end the inning.

Whitley County (9-4, 1-1 vs. 50th district opponents) added some insurance by pushing the lead to 7-1 in the bottom of the sixth thanks to an RBI single by Rose and a wild pitch by Combs.

The Redhounds (7-5, 1-1) went down in order in the seventh to close out the game, giving Whitley County the win.

After the loss, Corbin coach Rob Ledington said the difference in the game was his team’s lack of execution and overall poor play.

“Basically we played like a dog in this game and you’re just not going to win when you play the way we did today,” Ledington said. “They had two or three hits in the game and we hit three, walked five and I don’t how many passed balls we had.

“When you do that and then you can’t really get into any rhythm on offense, it just makes matters worse for you,” he added. “Add to the fact that we left multiple runners on base, it just really turned ugly. What it comes down to is if you don’t make plays and do the things you’re supposed to do, you’re not going to win games. They made plays when they had to.”
