CLAY COUNTY – The Corbin White 9 & 10-year-old All-Stars put together a good run, but fell short as they suffered an 11-6 loss to North Laurel.
“We couldn’t produce enough runs,” Corbin White coach Mel Chandler said. “We hit the ball, we just hit it right at them.”
Corbin jumped out to a 2-0 advantage in the top of the first inning thanks to a homerun by Ben Phillips, but North Laurel responded with five runs in the bottom of the inning to take a 5-2 lead.
“We jumped on them pretty quick and Ben hit one out of the park,” Chandler said. “That was his first homerun and it’s been a long time coming. He’s been hitting the ball hard. We have been adjusting his swing a little and he was solid in both tournaments.”
North Laurel took a 7-0 after two innings, but Corbin answered in the third inning with two runs to close the gap at 7-4.
North Laurel managed to put the game out of reach with three runs in the fifth inning to take an 11-4 lead. Corbin was only able to push across two runs during the last at bat.
“We hit the ball well, we just hit it right at them,” Chandler said. “We just needed more time to work together as a team.”
