A Good Start

Corbin wins season-opener with 11-0 win over Barbourville

CORBIN —  

By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

CORBIN — The Corbin Lady Redhounds opened the season in fine fashion Tuesday, knocking off Barbourville, 11-0.

A strong effort from starting pitcher Hannah Hart and a five-run first inning gave the Lady Redhounds a lead they would never let go of en route to the win.

Hart threw a complete game shutout, striking out 11 batters and giving up just two hits in the process for the Lady Redhounds. The junior hurler was dialed in most of the game, throwing 20 first-pitch strikes to the 22 batters she faced.

After the win, Corbin head coach Chris Hart said he was pleased with his team’s effort considering the conditions and it being the first game of the season.

“This was a good win for us in our first game and we were just thankful that we got to play since Barbourville was willing to come over here,” Hart said. “It’s good to get that first game out of the way, especially since we were able to get the win.

“I thought we played pretty good overall considering the conditions,” he added. “It took us a while to get adjusted to the pitching, but I felt like our defense played well and I thought Hannah pitched well.”

Offensively, the Lady Redhounds pounded out 11 hits, with Hannah Hart, Katie Bernardro, Callie Schoolcraft and Whitley Gatliff tallyingtwo hits each, while Amber Allen led the way in the RBI column with three.

The first inning is where most of the damage was done as an RBI single by Bernardo, a hit batter and three-run double by Allen put Corbin on top 5-0 after one inning.

Bernardo struck again in the second inning, connecting for an RBI double to score Hannah Hart after she doubled with one out in the inning, pushing the lead to 6-0.

The Lady Redhounds struck for two more runs in the top of the third inning. Gatliff singled and came around to score on an RBI double by Kaitley Jackson and Lindsey Barton brought her in to score on an RBI single to make the score 8-0 after three innings.

Corbin would plate one more run in the fourth inning and two in the top of the sixth to put them on top 11-0 heading into the bottom of the sixth inning.

Hannah Hart retired the Lady Tigers in order in the last inning to seal the win and improve her team to 1-0 on the young season.

Though his team struggled at the plate with just two hits, Barbourville head coach Brandon Simpson said he was pleased with the way his Lady Tigers battled at the plate.

“Hannah (Hart) is probably the best pitcher we’ll see all season so we had a hard time against her,” Simpson said. “We were able to get the bat around a few times on her, which is something for our kids to build on as we move forward.

“We’ll pick it up and get back at it against Harlan and Harlan County later this week, hopefully we can get our offense on track,” he added.

Corbin will be back in action Thursday, traveling to North Laurel, while Barbourville will face Harlan County.
