Whitley County remains undefeated

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Staff Writer

MCCREARY COUNTY — It may have taken them a few innings to get on the scoreboard, but once they did the Whitley County Colonels added to the lead en route to a 4-1 win over McCreary Central on the road.

The win sends Kyle Adams' team to 7-0 on the season, which tops last year's 5-2 start through the first seven games.

The Colonels' Jordan Crusenberry picked up the win after going the distance in the game, holding the Raiders to a run on six hits, while striking out 10 batters and walking none.

As if his effort on the mound wasn't enough, Crusenberry paced Whitley County at the plate as well, going 2-for-3 with a run scored. Stevie Watson and Jared Partin notched the only two RBIs of the game for the Colonels, while Corey Crisologo and Alec Edmisten and Michael Harris each scored a run.

Whitley County took a 1-0 lead in the top of the third after Casey Crisologo reached on a single, stole second and scored on a passed ball after being advanced to third.

The Colonels added a pair of runs in the fourth inning when Crusenberry doubled and then stole home after he advanced to third base on a sacrifice bunt by Ryan Short. Whitley County pushed the lead to 3-0 when Partin made good on a sacrifice attempt, allowing Edmisten to score from third.

The fourth and final run for the Colonels came in the fifth inning after Harris walked and stole second before scoring on an RBI double off the bat of Watson, stretching the lead to 4-0 heading to the bottom of the fifth inning.

McCreary Central managed to cut in to the lead in the fifth thanks to an error coupled with a pair of hits, making it  a4-1 game heading to the sixth inning.

The game remained scoreless from that point as Crusenberry held the Raiders to just two hits through the final two innings.
