Another no-no

Whitley County records second straight no-hitter

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

BARBOURVILLE — The Whitley County Colonel baseball team accomplished a rare feat by collecting their second straight no-hitter in as many days while winning their seventh game in a row during a 13-1 win over Barbourville.

Stevie Watson and Alex Rose combined to toss a no-hitter during Tuesday’s 4-0 win over Bell County while Jordan Crusenberry accomplished the feat Wednesday, striking out six batters during the process.

“I guess you can’t do any better than that,” Whitley County coach Kyle Adams said. “Our kids did what they needed to do to win. They played solid defense, pitched well and hit the ball well.”

Whitley County (17-6) continues to be one of the hottest teams in the 13th Region not only by solid pitching and defense, but at the plate as well.

The Colonels jumped on Barbourville early, scoring three runs in the first inning and two in the second to take a 5-1 edge. Whitley County added another run in the sixth inning before putting things away with a seven-run sixth inning.

Adams’ squad collected nine hits in the win and took advantage of four Tiger errors.

Tilman Jackson turned in a solid effort by delivering a home run, two hits, four RBIs and two runs scored.

“Tilman hit the ball really well,” Adams said. “He put the ball in play and he’s being a leader on the field.”

Corey Crisologo continued his impressive play at the plate, connecting with a hit while driving in three runs. Watson also had two hits and an RBI in the win while Cody Lewis, Luke Woods and Crusenberry each drove in a run apiece.

Jackson got things going in the first inning with an RBI single, which scored Rose. Crusenberry scored the Colonels’ second run of the game on a passed ball while Watson drove in Jackson with a single to make the score 3-0.

After seeing Barbourville score a run in the bottom half of the inning, Whitley County added two more runs in the top of the second, pushing its lead to 5-1.

Crisologo drove in a run with a groundout and Rose scored on an error.

The Colonels scored a run in the top of the fourth inning before putting things away in the sixth, as Jackson’s two-run homer over the left field fence highlighted the inning. Lewis had an RBI single during the inning.Crisologo drove in a run with a hit.

Whitley County will try to continue its impressive play today with a game against North Laurel at Whitaker Bank Park in Lexington.

“We’ve got a tough one ahead,” Adams said. “We’re not satisfied, though. We know we’ve still got a lot of work to do and we still have the district tournament in front of us.”
