Too Hot to Handle

Corbin offense, strong pitching lead to 12-1 win over Knox County

MIDDLESBORO — Knox County may have scored first in Wednesday’s showdown with the Corbin 11-year-old All Stars, but the early lead didn’t last very long.

Corbin scored 12 unanswered runs, using a dominant effort by Peyton Addison on the mound to cruise to the 12-1 win in four innings. Addison gave up just two hits through four innings of work, striking out seven of the 14 batters he faced. He struck out the side in the fourth inning to close out the impressive performance.

The win was the second in as many days for Corbin, putting them one win away from advancing to the state tournament. Corbin will now face North Laurel, Middlesboro or Knox County in Monday’s championship game.

Knox County jumped ahead in the first inning when Jordan Williams singled and came around to score on a double off the bat of Isaac Mills. Williams and Mills were each awarded a base (home and third) after the home plate umpire called obstruction on Corbin’s third baseman, making the score 1-0.

Six of Corbin’s first seven batters reached base in the bottom of the first inning, sparking a four-run rally that put them on top when all was said and done in the inning.

Luke Ledington came through with a two-run double, scoring Addison and Cody Cox to make it a 2-1 game. Not to be outdone, Corbin’s Nic Osborne struck for an RBI double of his own, scoring Josh Oliver and Ledington to put Corbin on top, 4-1.

Corbin picked up where it eft off in the first inning, using three straight hits by Cox, Oliver and Ledington, followed by a fielder’s choice by Kaylee Morales, to stretch the lead to 7-1 at the end of the second inning.

Corbin got off to a quick start for the third straight inning as the first seven batters reached base, scoring five runs to stretch the margin to 12-1.

Addison closed things out by striking out three straight in the bottom of the fourth to seal the victory.

Ledington paced Corbin with a 3-for-3 effort at the plate, tallying a double and three RBI. Oliver and Cox each went 2-for-2 with three runs scored. Cox had a double and an RBI, while Oliver tripled and knocked in two runs. Quinton Botner was 1-for-3 with two runs scored from the leadoff spot for Corbin, while Osborne added two RBI for Corbin.
