Ledington's Hounds come up short in extras

CORBIN — If you were in attendance at Thursday’s extra-inning affair between Corbin and Danville, you saw two teams that looked as if they could, and would have played all night.

Danville got the last word though, thanks to a go-ahead run in the 10th inning that sent the home-standing Redhounds to the 7-6 loss on Senior Night.

After the game, Corbin coach Rob Ledington had high praise for his team and the game as a whole, despite the loss.

“This was the best loss I have ever been apart of in my career,” Ledington said. “These kids competed their tails off out there tonight and even though we lost, I’m just proud of this group of kids for that.”

Danville used a three-run second inning to go ahead, but Corbin took advantage of an error and a fielder’s choice in the bottom of the inning to trim the gap to 3-2.

All was quiet until the bottom of the sixth when the Redhounds rallied to take a 5-3 lead. Cody McHargue stole home to tie things up at three apiece and Chad Brown came through with an RBI single that brought Nick Vorbeck around to make the score 4-3. Corbin shortstop Corey Ledington connected for a sacrifice fly to the opposite field, allowing Andrew Jones to tag-up from third, extending the lead to 5-3.

After losing the lead in the sixth, Danville answered in a big way in the top of the seventh thanks to a two-run home run off the bat of Mason Stamm to tie things up at five apiece. The Admirals added another run in the inning to grab a 6-5 lead heading into the bottom of the seventh.

A two-out single by Vorbeck gave Corbin hope, especially after he stole second and advanced to third on an error. The steal set Jake Metzger up with a chance to tie things up and that’s exactly what he did, with a single to center field.

Both teams threatened in the eighth and ninth innings, but it went to the 10th inning before anything was decided.

After intentionally walking Stamm to load the bases, Corbin’s Chad Brown walked in the go-ahead run to put the Admirals on top, 7-6. Brown struck out the next batter to get out of the inning, but the damage had already been done.

The Redhounds had their chances in the 10th inning, but it wasn’t to be as Derek Terry struck out to end the game with runners on first and second.

The loss drops Corbin to 16-13 on the season as they hit the road to face Somerset today at 5:30 p.m.
