Colonels improve to 19-10 on the season

CORBIN —

By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

WHITLEY COUNTY — After jumping out to an early 5-0 lead, the Whitley County Colonels exploded for seven runs in the third inning against McCreary Central, as they cruised to the 14-2 win.

Casey Crisologo, Corey Crisologo and Alex Rose each went 2-for-2 at the plate, accounting for six of the Colonels’ eight hits. Rose had a double and two RBIs, while Casey Crisologo had a pair of RBIs and scored two runs.

After the win, Colonels’ coach Kyle Adams said he was pleased with the way his team played in the win, as well as their continual improvement.

“We’ve played well for a pretty good stretch and we’ve played hard all year,” Adams said. “This game was no different, but I think our guys were a little more aggressive at the plate and on the bases.

“In addition to hitting the baseball well, our guys pitched well and the defense backed them up out there,” he added. “They continue to improve and as a coach that’s what you look for at this point of the season as we start to look toward postseason play.”

After jumping ahead 5-0, the Colonels gave up two runs in the third as McCreary Central trimmed the gap to 5-2. That deficit was short-lived though, as Adams and company used a seven-run third inning to put the game out of reach at 12-2.

The Colonels added a pair of runs in the bottom of the fourth inning before Stevie Watson struck out three of the four batters he faced in the fifth to end the game early thanks to a 12-run lead.

Whitley County improved to 19-10 on the season and will be back in action Thursday when they host Knox Central at 5:30 p.m. after that, Adams’ squad will pay its final game of the regular season Friday, hosting Barbourville.
