A tough day

Corbin Red and South London both drop games on Wednesday

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

SOUTH LONDON — A four-run sixth inning rally allowed the Clay County Gold All-Stars to shock host South London Wednesday with Clay punching a ticket into the district tournament with a 9-8 comeback win, while Corbin Red All-Stars jumped out to a 7-0 lead, but were eliminated after falling to Clay County White, 12-9, in the nightcap.

Clay County Gold 9, South London 8

It looked as if South London was going to cruise to the victory after Ryan Sizemore’s squad built a 3-1 lead after the first inning along with a 5-4 edge after the third inning and a 7-5 advantage after fourth inning, but Clay County never folded.

Clay County sent nine batters to the plate in the sixth inning, trailing 7-5, and built a two-run edge with Hunter Henson, Trent Abner, Justin Begley and Raven Abner each scoring in the game. Henson led Clay County with four runs scored while Begley scored twice.

Even though his squad trailed by two runs (9-7) going into the bottom of the inning, Sizemore’s players still had a chance.

Harrison Byrd scored to cut South London’s deficit to 9-8 with runners on first and third, but South London couldn’t push the game-tying run across.

Eli Sizemore led South London with three runs scored while going 2-for-2 with two walks while Byrd scored two times in the loss, going 3-for-3 with a walk.

Clay County White 12,

Corbin Red 9

Things started out great for the Corbin Red 9-10 year-old All-Stars and it looked as if they were going to advance in the 9-10 year-old Area 2 Tournament after scoring seven runs in the first inning.

But Clay County White responded in a big way, scoring two runs in the first inning while answering with five more runs in both the second and third innings to pick up a 12-9 win over Corbin.

Corbin started things off in fine fashion with Aden Cima, Ryan Peace, Parker Norvell, Zach Troglen, Josh Werner, Cameron Henson and Cameron Disney each scoring in the first inning. Corbin sent 11 batters to the plate during the inning, taking advantage of two walks, three errors and a couple of hits to take a 7-0 lead.

Clay County scored two runs in the bottom of the first inning before seeing Corbin take an 8-2 lead in the top of the second inning, as Peace crossed home plate for the second time in as many innings.

But that’s when things got interesting.

Clay County cut Corbin’s lead to 8-7 after scoring five runs in the bottom of the second inning, and they took their first lead of the game an inning later with five more runs, and the Corbin All-Stars found themselves trailing, 12-8.

Corbin added a run in the fourth inning with Cima scoring and cut its deficit to 12-9, but couldn’t get any closer.

    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.
