Colonels split pair with Jackson County

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Sports Editor

MCKEE — The Whitley County Colonels split a pair of games on the road Tuesday, falling to Jackson County 3-1 before picking up a 13-7 win over the Generals to improve to 19-9 on the season.

Jackson Co. 3,

Whitley Co. 1

It looked as though the Colonels would control things early after jumping out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning on an RBI single off the bat of Austin Ysidro. Ysidro’s hit brought Jordan Crusenberry in to score after he reached with a leadoff double.

Jackson County answered in a hurry though, tying things at a run apiece in the home half of the first inning. Cody Cunningham led the inning off with a double of his own and came around to score on an RBI single from Aaron Duncan to make the score 1-1.

All was quiet until the Generals struck for a pair of runs in the bottom of the second inning. Jacob Hays reached on a error and scored thanks to an RBI single by Lucas Moore to give Jackson County a 2-1 lead. Moore was able to score when Cody Cunnagin connected for a two-out single, stretching the lead to 3-1 at the end of three innings.

Whitley County was unable to find any offense the rest of the way as it fell, 3-1. The loss drops the Colonels to 18-9 on the season.

Crusenberry, Ysidro, Corey Crisologo and Cody Lewis notched the only four hits of the game for Whitley County as Duncan picked up the win for the Generals. Crisologo was tabbed with the loss for Whitley County.

Whitley Co. 13,

Jackson Co. 7

Just like the first game, the Colonels opened the contest by scoring in the first inning, but this time they didn’t give up the lead, picking up the 13-7 victory.

Stevie Watson paced the Colonels with a perfect 4-for-4 effort at the plate, tallying a pair of RBI and three runs scored in the game. Crusenberry was 3-for-4 at the plate with two runs scored and an RBI, while Ryan Short went 2-for-2 with an RBI and a run scored.

  • Shelton was a hero by any definition

    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.
