Whitley Walkoff

Colonels knock off Corbin, 7-6, with walkoff bunt

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Sports Editor

WHITLEY COUNTY — Friday’s district showdown between Corbin and Whitley County had a postseason atmosphere from the start as the two teams traded blows for much of the game, with runs scored in all but one inning.

In the end it came down to a perfectly executed bunt single off the bat of Corey Crisologo, scoring Michael Harris to give the Colonels a 7-6 win.

Whitley County head coach Kyle Adams said he was pleased with his team’s patience and willingness to fight through the adversity, especially when compared to the way they may have handled the situation in the past.

“Give it up to them you know, our kids got down and battled back and then got down and battled back again,” Adams said. “I’ve seen times before like this where our kids would quit, but that was a long time ago.

“I feel like things are starting to change around for us,” he added. “This was just a great ball game all the way around and I’m glad we came out on top.”

On the other side of things, Corbin coach Rob Ledington said he felt like the game didn’t necessarily come down to the Colonels’ last at bat

“Tonight simply came down to a lack of execution on our part defensively,” Ledington said. “Pitching wise, we didn’t pitch it real well. That last inning we walked the leadoff hitter, hit a guy and then we didn’t execute on bunts. We had second baseman going to second on a bunt when he should be covering first.

“That didn’t get us beat,” he added. “It was the entire ball game that we had opportunities where we didn’t execute. We made some errors tonight and we didn’t pitch it very well, but we battled at the plate.”

Corbin took a 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning, but the Colonels trimmed the gap to 2-1 with a run in the bottom of the first. The Redhounds added a run in each of the second and third innings, pushing the gap to 4-1.

Whitley County used a three-run third inning to tie things up and both teams added a run in the fifth to make it a tie at five runs apiece.

The Redhounds regained the lead in the top of the sixth inning when a pickoff attempt to third base went past the fielder, scoring Corbin’s Taylor Combs to give the Redhounds a 6-5 lead.

Whitley County’s first two batters got aboard in the seventh inning when Casey Crisologo walked to start the inning and Michael Harris was hit by a pitch to put runners on first and second with no outs in the inning.

An error on a sacrifice attempt by Whitley County’s Stevie Watson allowed the Colonels to tie things up at six runs apiece and two batters later, Corey Crisologo got the bunt down to give his team the 7-6 victory.
