Corbin White keeps district tourney hope alive with 10-0 win

CORBIN —

By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

CORBIN — Despite soggy conditions and an unprecedented change of venue after the game was underway, the Corbin (White) Minor League All Stars moved within a victory of advancing to next week’s district tournament after knocking off Clay County 10-0 Friday.

The game started at the South London Little League Complex, but after a heavy downpour soaked the fields, officials voted to allow the game to continue at Corbin’s Rotary Park. Both teams agreed and the plan was set in motion.

Corbin coach Jodi Botner said he was worried that the down time might affect his team’s momentum, but the result was the exact opposite.

“I was concerned because the kids didn’t seem focused because they were doing other stuff while we weren’t playing,” Botner said. “We got down here and got started back and they really swung the bats well for us and it showed on the scoreboard.

“A lot of times when you have the kind of disruption that we had, it’s hard to kind of get the kids back in the right mindset,” he added. “This group was pretty fired up and they kept that attitude throughout the game.”

Corbin’s first three hitters combined to go 6-for-9 at the plate, with four RBIs and four runs scored.

Luke Ledington led the way going a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate with a pair of doubles, an RBI and two runs scored. Quinton Botner was 2-for-3 with an RBI and two runs scored, while Cody Cox was 1-for-3 with an RBI double and a run scored.

Grant Dickerson held Clay County in check on the mound, pitching three and 2/3 innings to earn the win. Dickerson gave up just three hits and struck out three batters.

Nic Osborne came on in relief with two outs in the top of the fourth. He got the final out with runners on second and third as he forced the Clay County batter to pop the ball up weakly back to the pitcher’s mound.
