Redhounds get revenge, defeat Harlan County 1-0

CORBIN — By John Stepp For The Times Tribune

Just a week after dropping their first game of the season to Harlan County, 4-3, the Corbin Redhounds exacted revenge on Thursday, defeating the Black Bears 1-0 in eight innings.

Senior pitcher Austin Combs was most impressive in the extra-innings affair, going the distance on the mound. Combs held Harlan County to just two hits in the eight innings he pitched, while walking one batter, and allowing no runs.

"Austin (Combs) only threw 81 pitches in the game and this was the second game in a row where we've had very efficient pitching," said Ledington. "We also had outstanding defense once again. Harlan County is a good hitting team, but we did a good job against them tonight."

The game came down to the bottom of the eighth inning, as both teams were still without a run, but all the Redhounds needed was one guy to come through for them.

Junior Jace Woodruff reached base on a single and proceeded to steal second and third base. With two outs, a ground ball found its way to the Harlan County shortstop, but the ball was thrown in the dirt and Woodruff raced home for the game-winning run.

"We had five hits in the game, but we actually hit the ball a little better tonight. We hit the ball on the nose a few times and they just made good plays," said Ledington. "This was a really good win for us. They have a good team and threw their top pitcher against us."

With just three games under their belt, the Redhounds are 2-1 on the season with two key wins over tough opponents in Harlan County and Knox Central.

"There are probably six or seven teams who can contend for the regional championship," said Ledington. "We were able to pick this one up and we got a good win over a good Knox Central team. Even in our first loss to Harlan County, we were competitive. I like the way we are playing right now."

The Redhounds will return to action today, traveling to take on the Middlesboro Yellow Jackets in a 13th Region matchup.

    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.
