CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

CORBIN — After going through a stretch that saw his team go 1-5 during a nine-day span, Corbin coach Rob Ledington is pleased with the way his team has played since Monday.

The Redhounds won their third game in a row by knocking off Bell County at home, 10-0, while improving to 15-11 during the process. Corbin has outscored its opponents 29-2 during the three-game stretch and enters this weekend’s Don House Memorial with a lot of momentum.

“I’m happy with the way we have played this past week,” Ledington said. “We played a solid ball game tonight. Bell County is a good, decent ball club and we did what we needed to get the win.”

Corbin jumped on the Bobcats and cruised to the easy 10-run win behind another solid pitching effort by Austin Combs.

“We’re doing a good job right now,” Ledington said. “We play again Friday against Tates Creek, who is a top 10 ball club and they also play in the toughest region in the state.”

The Commodores, Corbin, Bellevue and Wayne County make up the four-team field of this weekend’s Don House Memorial Classic.
