Corbin routs Knox Central, 15-0, in three innings

CORBIN — By John Stepp For The Times Tribune

CORBIN — The Corbin Lady Redhounds picked up their sixth win in seven games with a 15-0 rout of the Knox Central Lady Panthers in 13th Region Softball action on Monday.  

The Lady Redhounds pounded out nine hits and had eight runs batted in, in just three innings of play, as the 15-run rule was enforced.  

“It was just a good all around game for us tonight. It was one of those games where everyone played well and it all came together for us,” said Corbin coach Chris Hart. “I'm proud of the girls. It was a good win for us over a good Knox Central team.”  

Not only were the Lady Redhounds impressive at the plate, but the pitching and defensive efforts from Corbin were as good as they've had all year.  

Hannah Hart picked up the win for the Lady Redhounds, allowing just two hits and striking out four batters in three innings of work. She also received a big game from her defense, who had no errors in the game.

“We have had good pitching and defense all year and that showed again tonight,” said Hart. “That is how we are going to win games against good teams. If we can pitch well and play solid defense, we will be in most of our games.”  

Corbin scored three runs in the first inning, as their first three batters reached home. Hart, Lindsey Barton, and Kelly Farley all scored in the inning, giving the Lady Redhounds an early 3-0 lead.  

Corbin added two more runs in the second inning, as Hart and Farley scored their second runs of the night.  

“This is the type of game you like to have, when everything is working for you,” Hart said. “With the difficult schedule we played earlier in the year, I think it helped once we started playing against district and region opponents.”  

Corbin scored an incredible 10 runs in the bottom of the third inning to finish the game. Farley led the Lady Redhounds at the plate, with four single and four runs batted in. Barton finished with a single with three runs batted in.  

The win improved Corbin's record to 12-15 on the season. They will take on the South Laurel Lady Cardinals tonight in a game that decides the top seed in the 50th District Tournament.

    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.
