Knox County rally falls short as Corbin grabs 12-10 victory

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Sports Editor

CORBIN — They may have had to withstand a last-inning rally, but the Corbin Little League All Stars held on for the 12-10 win over Knox County Wednesday, advancing a step closer to the state tournament.

Much like Tuesday’s win over McCreary County, Corbin jumped out to an early 9-0 lead after two innings and looked like it would cruise to the win. Cameron Allen connected for a solo home run in the bottom of the first inning, giving Corbin a 2-0 lead.

Another offensive outburst by Corbin, including five hits in the second inning pushed the lead to 9-0, but Knox County wasn’t about to go away, answering with a five-run third inning to make the score 9-5.

Knox County’s Trey Phipps got his team on the board with a bases-loaded double to right field, trimming the lead to 9-3. An error, a walk and a base hit by Joshua Mills helped make it a 9-5 game going in to the bottom of the third inning.

Corbin added two runs in the home half of the third inning when Boston Hardesty connected for a two-run double to score Garner Chandler and Dylan Massengil, stretching the gap to 11-5 heading to the fourth inning.

Knox County added a run in the top of the fourth when Phipps grounded out to shortstop, allowing Ethan Mills to score from third to make the score 11-6. Joshua Mills got Knox County one run closer when he led off the fifth inning with a solo home run, trimming the gap to 11-7.

Corbin got the run back in the bottom of the fifth when Caden Worley’s groundout to second base allowed Ben Phillips to score from third to make the score 12-7.

A one-out walk, followed by a pair of errors and a two-run single by Larkin Abner cut the deficit to 12-10, but that’s as close as Knox County could get. Corbin’s Zac Hash struck out the final two batters of the game to seal the win.

Cooney, Allen and Phillips each tallied two hits in the game for Corbin, while Joshua Mills was the only Knox County player to record multiple hits in the game. Phipps had four RBI for Knox County.
