Redhounds pick up 15-8 win over Knox Central

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

KNOX CENTRAL — The Corbin Redhounds got the season started on a high note Tuesday, picking up a 15-8 road win over Knox Central.

The Redhounds cranked out 16 hits in the win, led by a 4-for-5 effort from Derek Terry, who also tallied a pair of RBI and scored a run.

Taylor Combs and Zach Farley each collected three hits, while Farley added a pair of RBI and scored a run.

The Redhounds fell behind early after Knox Central’s Jacob Stewart connected for a grand slam to put the Panthers up 4-0 at the end of one inning.

Corbin responded with a three-run spurt in the top of the second inning to trim the gap to 4-3 as Goins settled in after the rocky first inning and held the Panthers at bay.

The Redhounds grabbed the lead in the top of the fourth inning after Jacob Metzger scored from third when Keaton Burton grounded into a double play, advancing Austin O’Neill to third. O’Neill came in to score on the next play as Terry singled to right to put his team on top 5-4.

After seeing his team rally back from the early deficit, Corbin head coach Rob Ledington said he was pleased with his team’s effort and said despite allowing eight runs, his team didn’t play all that bad.

“I thought we hit the ball really well and we did a good job of squaring up on it,” Ledington said. “I was very pleased with our offensive production as whole. We bunted the ball well and did a good job running the bases.

“I know we gave up eight runs, but we pitched really well also,” he added. “Goins struggled a little bit early and gave up a grand slam in the first inning, but he settled down and did a good job for us.”

After grabbing the lead in the fourth, Corbin added a run in the fifth and six more in the sixth. Terry doubled to score Farley, which opened the floodgates. When all was said and done, Austin Combs, Taylor Combs, Nick Vorbeck, Andrew Jones and Metzger came around to score and push the gap to 12-4. A three-run sixth extended the lead to 15-4. Knox Central was able to cut the lead to 15-8 with a four-run seventh inning, but it wasn’t enough to save them from the loss.
