Corbin moves on

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

CORBIN — The Corbin 11-12 year-old All-Stars earned a berth in the upcoming District 4 Tournament by upending Clay County, 13-5, Wednesday in the loser’s bracket finals of the Area 2 Tournament.

For the second straight game, Corbin’s bats came alive and scored in double-digits, as a five-run second inning combined with a five-run fourth inning paved the way to their win.

Corbin’s Jordan Fox turned in an impressive game at the plate, going 4-for-5 with a triple, one RBI and one run scored while Colin Kidd collected a hit, and drove in a team-high three RBIs in the win. Christian Gosselin and Austin Reynolds each collected two hits in the win, while each player also drove in a run apiece. Reynolds finished the game with three runs scored while Gosselin scored twice.

Corbin finished the game with 11 hits, as Noah Maze and Nick Yeager each had a hit apiece.

Kidd and Gosselin combined to get the win on the mound with Kidd tossing 2 2/3 of an inning allowing three runs and four hits while striking out four batters. Gosselin tossed 3 1/3 of an inning, while limiting Clay County to no hits and only one earned run. He finished the game with two strikeouts.

Corbin jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the second inning before seeing Clay County respond with two runs of its own in the bottom of the inning. Both teams scored a run apiece in the third inning before Corbin put the game away with a five-run fourth inning, taking a commanding 11-3 advantage.

Clay County responded with two runs in the bottom of the fourth inning, but couldn’t put together any thing else at the plate for the remainder of the game. Corbin put the finishing touches on its win with two runs in the top of the sixth.
