Moving On: South London wins sets up elimination game with Corbin

CORBIN — By Les Dixon

Staff Writer

 SOUTH LONDON — Mike Garland’s South London 9-10 year-old All-Stars had their backs against the wall after losing to Clay County Monday, and they responded in fine fashion, remaining alive for another day in the Area Tournament by upending North Laurel Green, 12-2.

“I’m really proud of the way we played,” Garland said. “I only wasted one pitcher today, so we’ll have most of our pitching tomorrow.

“We know we’ll be playing Corbin, and they are a good team,” he added. “We just need to be ready to play.”

Garland’s players were more than ready to play Tuesday.

South London scored three runs in the first inning and never looked back, as Anthony Garland, Tucker Warren and Colsen Hays each scored.

North Laurel Green did manage to cut its deficit to 3-2 in the second inning before seeing South London add a run in the bottom of the second inning.

Garland’s squad put the game away by sending 11 batters to the plate while scoring eight runs to wrap-up the 12-2 victory.

“We played well today,” Garland said. “We didn’t play well against Clay County, but that’s over now, and we came back and played really good today. We made eight or nine errors against Clay County, but played better defensively.”

South London also hit the ball better.

Garland’s squad finished the game with nine hits, as Warren had three hits to lead the way. Warren, Garland and Hays each scored twice in the win.

“We are a very good hitting team,” Garland said. “We hit the ball good tonight.

“I like our chances. We just have to continue to hit the ball, and our pitching needs to come through.” he added.

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
