FORT WALTON BEACH, FLA. — Corbin scored two runs in the first inning of Tuesday’s game with Breckinridge County and that would be all they needed, as the Lady Redhounds picked up a 2-0 win in the Fort Walton Beach Classic.
Corbin’s Hannah Hart turned in one of her best pitching efforts of the young season by limiting Breckinridge County to only one hit while striking out 12 batters.
"We didn't hit the ball well today, but we played good defense and Hannah pitched a very good game for us," Corbin coach Chris Hart said. "It was good for us to get ahead, but I thought we let our intensity down.
"Our bats cooled off, but we are 3-0 in Florida for the first time and I'm really proud of the girls' effort," he added. "They have really worked hard."
The Lady Redhounds (6-2) only had three hits the entire game, but did all the damage they needed in the first inning, as Hart connected with a hit and was driven in by a hit by Whitney Gatliff. Corbin’s lead grew to 2-0 after Sydney Reynolds was hit by a pitch and scored Kelley Farley from third base.
Corbin, who has now won four straight games, will be back in action Thursday at noon against 12th Region foe Tates Creek.
