Runaway win

Lady Redhounds pick up 12-1 district win

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Sports Editor

CORBIN — After being forced to take exactly a week off thanks to several rainouts, the Corbin Lady Redhounds were back in action Thursday.

Chris Hart’s squad showed no signs of rust against Whitley County, cruising to a 12-1 win in five innings, improving to 3-1 in 50th District play with two games to go before seeding is determined.

“I thought we played well considering we haven’t played a game in a week,” Corbin coach Chris Hart said. “We had a few little mistakes here and there, but overall I think our kids did a good job of executing throughout the game.

“We were able to do some things we had been working on, so any time you do that, it feels like you’re making progress,” he added.

Meg Greene’s 3-for-3 effort led the way offensively for Corbin. Greene also scored three runs and tallied a pair of RBI in the win.

Sydney Reynolds was 2-for-2 with two runs and an RBI, while Hannah Hart and Whitley Gatliff each went 2-for-3. Hart knocked in two runs on two doubles, while Gatliff scored two runs and knocked in one run.

Whitley County took an early lead when Alexa Chaffman came through with a base hit in the top of the first, allowing Johnna Dopel to score on a throwing error by the Lady Redhounds.

Corbin answered in the bottom of the first inning when Reynolds connected for an RBI double that scored Hannah Hart to tie the game at a run apiece.

The Lady Redhounds took the lead for good in the bottom of the second inning when Greene and Katie Bernardo scored to give them a 3-1 lead. Hart’s squad never looked back from that point. Corbin added six runs in the bottom of the third inning and three more in the fifth to push the lead to 12-1 at the end of four innings.

Greene pitched the final two innings to close out the game for Corbin, allowing just one hit and striking out two batters. Hannah Hart worked the first three innings, giving up one unearned run on a pair of hits with four strikeouts.

Despite the loss, Whitley County coach Amanda Moses said she was pleased with her team’s effort throughout the contest.

“We did a good job, but Corbin just hits the ball really well and that’s what they did tonight,” Moses said. “Our kids hit the ball better than they did last time out against Hannah (Hart), so I’m proud of them for standing in there and battling.

“We’re still really young, so these games are going to help our kids mature as the season progresses,” she added.
