Eight is Enough

Eight-run fourth inning leads to Corbin win

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Sports Editor

CORBIN — It may have taken the Corbin Redhounds four innings to get in to a rhythm against Williamsburg’s Ryan Bowlin, but once they did they made the best of it.

Rob Ledington’s squad used an eight-run fourth inning to break a scoreless tie and never looked back Monday, cruising to its first district win of the season and improving to 4-7 overall and 1-0 in district play.

While he was quick to point out he was taking nothing away from Williamsburg’s effort, Ledington said he felt like the team’s recent trip to South Carolina may have played a part in the early struggles.

“Not to take anything at all away from Williamsburg, but our guys had a hard time adjusting to a slower speed on the mound,” Ledington said. “We’re coming off a trip where we faced two Division I prospects and a guy that is going to be drafted in to the major leagues.

“We were swinging early and we had to make that adjustment and wait for pitches,” he added. “Even after we adjusted we still didn’t hit the baseball very well, but we did enough to get the win and that means something.”

Austin Combs and Peyton Buford paced the Redhounds at the plate, turning in a pair of 2-for-3 efforts, while Nick Vorbeck led the way with three RBI in a 2-for-4 showing. Vorbeck came through with a bases-loaded triple in the fourth inning to cap the Corbin rally.

Corbin ace Kevin Goins went the distance for the Redhounds on the mound, giving up just two hits and striking out three batters.

As much as his offense struggled early on in the game, Ledington said he was pleased with the way his defense made up for it throughout the game.

“I’ve said all along that we can play defense and that’s the way I feel about this team,” Ledington said. “Our kids can field the baseball with the best of them, but we just have to get things going on offense if we want to get where we need to be.

“Kevin did a good job for us on the mound as usual and our guys did a good job of backing him up out there in the field,” he added.

The two teams will be back in action today when Williamsburg hosts the Redhounds at 5:30 p.m.

  • Shelton was a hero by any definition

    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.
