CORBIN — Corbin Redhounds coach Rob Ledington said his team has played better over the last few games, but it took a two-out hit in the sixth inning to break up a no-hit bid by Tates Creek’s Cody Bronaugh.
The Redhounds got a pair of runs in the sixth inning, but fell 8-2 in the opening game of the Don House Memorial Classic.
Despite the loss, Ledington said he was pleased with his team’s effort against a team like Tates Creek.
“We put the ball in play, but they had a no-hitter going after the fifth and we kind of got the bats going a little bit,” Ledington said. “They’re a legitimately good team, I think ranked fifth in the state, and they’ve got three guys that are expected to get drafted.
“For us to be able to compete with them is really encouraging,” he added. “We gave up three unearned runs, had a passed ball that let them score a few runs, so other than that we did pretty well. We’re playing better and that’s what I’m worried about, so we’ll see what happens next time out.”
The Commodores got on the scoreboard in the second inning when Nick Richmond singled to score Jeff Chapuran to make the score 1-0. Tates Creek added two more runs on a two-run single by Devin Hairston to make the score 3-0.
The Redhounds gave up two more runs in the third inning as the deficit grew to 5-0, but Corbin trimmed the gap to 5-2 in the sixth.
Tates Creek added three runs in the seventh to make the score 8-2.
