Williamsburg stays alive

Williamsburg eliminates Corbin in District 4 action with 5-2 victory

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

CORBIN — The Williamsburg 12-year-old All Stars know how to hang tough.

After clawing their way into the District 4 Tournament with wins over Pineville/Bell and Middlesboro last week, Williamsburg extended its All-Star season for at least one more game with a 5-2 win over Corbin on Tuesday.

Kyle Edmisten carried the load on the mound, while the Williamsburg offense provided enough firepower early to get the win.

“We just keep on playing and that’s all you can ask for,” Williamsburg coach Jerry Croley said. “We’ve seen a lot of teams lately and Corbin is one of the best teams we’ve seen, so we had our work cut out.

“Our kids did a great job getting some runs and Kyle Edmisten pitched a really good game for us on the mound,” he added. “Like I said the other day, we’re taking one game at a time and now we’ve got another game to play.”

Edmisten kept Corbin’s hitters off balance most of the game, limiting them to just three hits through 5 1/3 innings with 10 strikeouts and just three walks.

Clay Kysar got Williamsburg going in the top of the first inning with a two-run home run to put his team on top 2-0. Corbin threatened to answer in the home half of the first inning, but stranded runners on first and second to end the inning.

All was quiet until Williamsburg plated three more runs in the top of the third inning. After consecutive singles by Cameron Bowen, Brock Bennett and Edmisten, Caleb Rains walked to push the lead to 3-0.

With the bases still loaded, Williamsburg added two more runs on a single to left field by Jacob Prewitt, pushing the lead to 5-0.

Corbin managed to scatter base runners in the third, fourth and fifth innings, but never seemed to get in any kind of rhythm offensively. Corbin coach Shane Creekmore said the game was similar to last week’s loss to North Laurel.

“It was a lot like our game against North Laurel in the fact we got a few base hits here and there, but just couldn’t seem to get anything going,” Creekmore said. “I’m proud of our kids though because they’ve put in a lot of work over the past few weeks.

“One bright spot for us is we were able to play here at home and didn’t have to travel,” he added. “We’ve traveled the last few years and it was a blessing to be able to play here at our home field.”  

Corbin finally managed to break into the scoring column in the bottom of the sixth when Brody Barton doubled to score Peyton Tirey to cut the lead to 5-1.

Christian Gosselin singled to bring Barton in from second to make the score 5-2, but was caught trying to take second on the throw home to end the game.

Williamsburg will be back in action tonight at 6 p.m. against the winner of the game between Harlan and Pulaski County.

    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.
