Colonels knock of W’burg, 12-4

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

WHITLEY COUNTY — The Whitley County Colonels got a complete game from Alex Rose on the mound and a 3-for-3 effort, including a solo home run, from Steven Watson at the plate as they cruised past Williamsburg for the second straight day.

The 12-4 win over the Yellow Jackets puts Whitley County dead even with Corbin in the 50th District standings, meaning a coin flip will determine the No. 2 and 3 seeds.

Williamsburg’s Logan Hamblin was roughed up to the tune of eight runs through three innings as he took the loss for the Yellow Jackets, while Ryan Bowlin gave up four runs through the final three innings.

After the win, Whitley County coach Kyle Adams said he was happy with the way his team swung the bats as well as the focus it maintained with the big lead late.

“We played well and I'm happy with the way our kids stayed focused,” Adams said. "We've had a tendency to let up in games where we get a lead, but our kids did a good job a finishing to get the win.

“With district play behind us we’ll really work on shoring up the small things and work on some of the mental breakdowns that have cost us this season,” he added. “We play Corbin in the first round of the district and after splitting with them in the regular season I feel like we have a chance to win a game.”

Williamsburg struck first with a three-run first inning, but it didn't take long for the Colonels to answer.

Watson led off the bottom of the second with a home run over the left field wall and his team followed suit. The Colonels racked up five hits in the inning and before all was said and, they had grabbed a 6-3 lead.

Two more runs in the third and one in the fourth inning pushed the gap to 9-4 and three more runs in the sixth made the score 12-4.

Williamsburg threatened in the top of the seventh inning, but failed to get a run across as the loss kept them winless in district play this season.

As for the Colonels, Adams said he feels like his squad has improved as the season has progressed and will continue to do so as the regular season starts to wind down.

“Our kids are playing smarter baseball and when we play good defense, I feel like we can play with any team on any day,” he said.
