MIDDLESBORO — After reeling off three straight wins, the Corbin 11-year-old All-Stars saw their season come to an end with a heartbreaking 3-2 loss to Hazard/Perry Wednesday.
Corbin was coming off an impressive 10-0 win over North Laurel, but couldn’t put anything together at the plate until the sixth inning.
Corbin dug itself a hole by falling behind 3-0, but rallied in the top of the sixth inning before coming up short.
Brody Barton drove in a run to make the score 3-1 while Austin Reynolds’ hit into a fielder’s choice that cut Corbin’s deficit to 3-2. That would be as close as Corbin would get.
“It was a tough loss for us,” Corbin coach Shane Creekmore said. “Both teams had good pitching today. We just couldn’t get anything going.
“We did manage to get a rally going in the sixth inning, but came up short,” he added. “I’m really proud of the kids, though. After we lost 17-4 to a good Knox County team, they could have given up and went 0-2, but they responded with three straight wins and I’m proud of them for that.”
