CORBIN — Rob Ledington’s Corbin Redhounds are playing some of their best ball with two weeks remaining in the regular season.
Corbin improved to 16-12 on the season after defeating Bellevue, 1-0, Saturday in the Don Memorial Classic.
The Redhounds followed that with a game against Wayne County, which ended tied at three apiece in the third inning after a steady rain ended the game abruptly.
“I thought we played well,” Ledington said. “It was a close game, but we had some opportunities to score, but we just didn’t come up with a timely hit.
“I thought we pitched well and played good in the field,” he added. “I am (happy with the way the team is playing), if we can continue to play like we have.”
The Redhounds were coming off an 8-2 loss to 11th Region foe Tates Creek, but turned things around on Saturday.
“Bellevue is a good club,” Ledington said. “I thought we did a lot of good things out there. We only struck out five times and our goal is keep it below six. We’ve won four out of our last five games and it’s going to be interesting to see how many games we will get in this week because of the rain.”
The Redhounds are scheduled to play Middlesboro today at home before hitting the road Tuesday to play Rockcastle County.

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.
