Jags knock off Whitley County

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

LEXINGTON — North Laurel’s Logan Mallory stepped on the mound during Thursday’s game against Whitley County at Whitaker Bank Ballpark and shined by pitching the Jaguars past the region’s hottest team, 5-1.

Mallory turned in a complete game effort, while allowing only one hit and one unearned run and finishing the game with seven strikeouts.

“This was a just a good game,” North Laurel coach Darrin McWhorter said. “Both teams made some good plays and both team’s pitchers pitched great. It should have been a 2-1 game really, but we were able to score three runs on an error.

“I thought Logan pitched a very good game,” he added. “He’s turned in solid efforts during the past three or four outings he’s had. The (Alex) Rose kid pitched well, too. It was just a well played game overall.”

The Jaguars struck first with a run in the bottom of the first inning and held the slim edge until the top of the fifth when an error allowed the Colonels to tie the game at one apiece.

North Laurel answered with a run of its own in the bottom of the inning to take a 2-1 edge while putting the game away in the bottom of the sixth with three runs.

“It was a 2-1 game with two outs in the sixth inning and we dropped a fly ball and they were able to score three runs,” Whitley County coach Kyle Adams said. “We made a few mistakes and they cost us, but overall, it was a great opportunity for the kids and I thought it was a great game to watch.”

University of Kentucky signee Marcus Carson went 2-for-2 at the plate with two walks and three runs scored, while Weston Griebel, Ethan Maxey and Zach Hurley each had a hit and drove in a run apiece.

Whitley County’s Tilmon Jackson had his team’s lone hit of the contest while Alex Rose took the loss on the mound, allowing only two earned runs on four hits while striking out eight batters.

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
    To be honest, it’s been used way too much for a long time and I’m just as guilty as the next guy.
