Goins, Redhounds blank Pulaski County, 4-0

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Staff Writer

CORBIN— The Corbin Redhounds won their fourth straight game Friday, picking up a 4-0 win over Pulaski County at home, improving Rob Ledington’s team to 4-0.

A three-run home run by Taylor Combs and a complete game shutout on the mound from Kevin Goins highlighted the win.

Goins faced 29 batters in all, giving up four hits and walking two, while striking out three in the game. He threw 102 pitches with 64 of them for strikes.

On the offensive side of things, the Redhounds gave their hurler all the support he would need with a run in the bottom of the fourth when Austin Combs singled to score Keaton Burton from third to put Corbin on top, 1-0.

Not to be outdone by his brother, Taylor Combs gave his team a little breathing room in the bottom of the sixth when he hit a line drive over the left field fence for a three-run home run to push the gap to 4-0.

Despite a walk in the top of the seventh, Goins was never threatened as he retired two of the last four batters he faced on strikeouts to end the game.

After the win, Corbin coach Rob Ledington gave his team credit for the effort, but wanted to spread the wealth as far as what his squad has done so far this season.

“Our kids played well and Kevin (Goins) pitched seven innings for us and did a great job,” Ledington said. “Taylor (Combs) knocked in some runs in for us and that’s all Kevin needed.

“The kids are playing well, but what we’re seeing right now is a product of our summer program and our middle school program where the guys like Gary Helton, CE Brittain and Tim Barnes who have worked so hard with that group to get better,” he added. “My coaches do a great job as well. Coach (Trey) Smith does a great job with our pitchers, coach (Cody) Philpot does a great job with our hitters and coach Jackson does a great job on the bases. Basically all I have to do is sit back and watch.”

Burton was 2-3 with a run scored, while Taylor and Austin Combs and Jacob Metzger tallied one hit apiece.

The Redhounds will be back in action Monday when they travel to Middlesboro for a 5:30 p.m. start time.
