Corbin locks up top seed with win over Colonels

CORBIN — By John Stepp For The Times Tribune

CORBIN — The Corbin Redhounds locked up the first seed in the 50th District Tournament with their 5-4 win over the visiting Whitley County Colonels on Monday night. The Redhounds have put together an impressive string of wins in the past four weeks, winning 11 of their last 13 games.  

With a game winning single from Austin Combs in the bottom of the eighth inning, the Redhounds avenged their loss to the Colonels from last Friday. Whitley County defeated Corbin 7-6 in a similar matchup in which Whitley County took the win in the bottom of the last inning.  

“You've got two teams that don't want to lose. Pride won out tonight. It was a great game tonight and even the last game was a great game,” Corbin Coach Rob Ledington said. “But let me say that Whitley County has done an awesome job coaching. They are relevant within this region.”  

The Colonels took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning with a solo homerun from Austin Ysidro. Corbin answered in the bottom of the inning, as Andrew Jones reached base on a single and later scored on a Whitley County throwing error, tying the game at 1-1 after the first.  

The Redhounds added another run in bottom of the third, as Nick Vorbeck crossed home on another error from the Colonels, taking a 2-1 lead.  

“I'm proud of the effort from our kids tonight. They play as hard as anyone,” said Ledington. “We have a great bunch of kids. I'm proud of my team and my coaches.”  

Whitley County looked to take control of the game in the third inning. Michael Harris, Stevie Watson, and Casey Crisologo all reached home in the inning, with Cody Lewis bringing the last two in on an RBI single, helping the Colonels to a 3-2 lead afte four innings.  

After holding the Colonels scoreless in the top of the fifth, Corbin tied the game at 4-4 in the bottom of the inning. With Taylor and Austin Combs on second and third base, a throwing error from the Whitley County pitcher sent both home, putting Corbin back in the game heading into the sixth inning.  

“Anytime we come down here to Corbin, we know it is going to be a good game. I've seen kids come down here and not give much effort, but this group of kids we have really played hard tonight,” Whitley County Coach Kyle Adams said. “They have a nice ball club. We have to start playing mistake free baseball if we are going to win these game. We gave them three runs and that killed us.”  

Tied at 4-4, the teams remained scoreless until Austin Combs' single brought Kevin Goins around for the game's final run, giving the Redhounds the victory.

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
    To be honest, it’s been used way too much for a long time and I’m just as guilty as the next guy.
