Corbin falls to Tri-Cities

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

NORTH LAUREL — The Corbin Minor League All-Stars fought back from a 5-1 deficit before being eliminated in the District 4 Minor League Tournament by dropping a 12-11 decision to Tri-Cities.

“This is the hardest working team I think I’ve ever worked with in all of my years coaching,” Corbin coach Karen Garland said. “They never give up. I thought we were going to pull it out. I could taste it.

“I knew this would be a good game because this was a good, even-matched team,” she added. “This gave them the opportunity to shine where they’ve been in the shadows of the other girls in our regular league. I’m extremely happy with the way they played today.”

Tri-Cities fell behind 1-0 in the top of the first inning, as Corbin’s Shelby Stewart led the game off with a double and eventually scored after a groundout by Kaiti Garland.

But it didn’t take long for Tri-Cities to take the lead, as four walks and three hits led to a four-run bottom of the first inning.

Corbin cut its deficit to 4-2 after Whitney Trosper scored in the top of the second, but Tri-Cities responded with a run of its own in the bottom of the inning to take a 5-2 edge.

Four walks in the top of the third inning allowed Corbin to tie the game at five apiece, as Stewart, Garland, and Trosper each scored in the inning.

The tie didn’t last long, though, as Tri-Cities scored three runs in the bottom of the third inning to take an 8-5 advantage. Corbin rallied in the fourth inning and took a slim 9-8 lead after rallying to score four runs. Stewart collected her second hit of the game during the inning and eventually scored along with Michaela Sullivan, Trosper and Kaila Stidham.

Tri-Cities tied the game at nine apiece with a run in the bottom of the inning and held Corbin scoreless in the top of the fifth inning and that’s when they finally took control of the game.

Tri-Cities added three runs in the bottom of the fifth inning and managed to hold off a late rally by Corbin in the top of the sixth to pick up a slim 12-11 win.
