Trey-and-0

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

WHITLEY COUNTY — The South Laurel Cardinals remained unbeaten against 50th District teams after they cruised to a 14-3 win (five innings) over Whitley County on the road Monday.

The Cardinals Trey Martin got the win after giving up two runs on one hit and striking out seven through three innings. Taylor Morris pitched the final two innings for South Laurel to close things out, giving up a run ob three hits.

Despite the big win, South Laurel coach Wynn Harris seemed focused on getting his team to improve and play even better than it did Monday.

“We’ve hit the ball well the last week and a half and we’re starting to kind of catch our stride offensively,” Harris said. “We’ve still got some things we’ve got to work on, obviously that showed in the first inning defensively.

“We’re starting to hit midseason and what we’re trying to do is control our own destiny in the district and give ourselves the best chance to get into the region tournament,” he added. “From there we want to fine tune what we’re doing and we have to get better as we continue to go along.”

South Laurel got out of the gates quickly, putting up five runs in the first inning, but the Colonels trimmed the gap to 5-2 with runs in the first and second innings.

The Cardinals pushed the gap to 8-2 with a three-run third inning and followed that up with six more runs in the fourth to push the gap to 14-2.

Whitley County plated a run in the bottom of the fifth inning, but it was too late as they eventually fell 14-3.

Zach Allen led the way for the Cardinals at the plate, finishing the game with three RBIs on a perfect 3-for-3 effort at the plate. Austin Moore was 2-for-3 with four RBIs, while Brennan Miller went 2-for-3 with a pair of RBIs as well.

The Cardinals will welcome Whitley County today as they host the second game of the two-game set. With a win, Harris’ team will improve to 4-0 in district play, meaning a win over Corbin next week would lock up the No. 1 seed in the 50th District Tournament.

    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.
