Lady Hounds fall to Rockcastle

CORBIN — By John Stepp / For The Times Tribune

It's always difficult to win games on the road. Unfortunately, for the Corbin Lady Redhounds, they learned that the hard way on Thursday, falling to Rockcastle County 9-7 in softball action.

The Lady Redhounds were winning the game early on and had a chance at a comeback in the top of the seventh inning.

With two outs and a runner on first and second, Kelly Farley hit a ground ball to the second baseman. First base runner Haley Hart stopped to avoid the fielder, but a call by the home plate umpire ruled Hart out on an interference call that ended the game.

"I had a player coming in to score and another player who would have been on third as the tying run," said Corbin coach Chris Hart. "The umpire who was right there and saw the play didn't make the call, but the guy behind the plate came out and made it and it ended the game for us."

Despite the controversial ending, Hart's squad let other opportunities slip through their fingers, as the defense had seven errors in the game.

"We actually played better than we've been playing. Defense is still a struggle with the seven errors we made tonight," said Hart. "We also missed a lot of other plays that would have helped us get the win. But we've still got some work to do on defense."

Corbin led the game all the way up to the sixth inning, before the Lady Rockets took over.

The Lady Redhounds started off on the right foot, scoring two runs in the top of the first inning. Kelly Farley reached base on a fielder's choice and Sydney Reynolds brought her home on a two-run homer at the very next at bat, giving Corbin an early 2-0 lead.

Hart added a solo home run in the top of the third and Lindsey Barton reached home on an error in the fifth, putting Corbin up 4-3 after five innings. Rockcastle added a run in the bottom of the fifth, but Corbin put three more on the board in the top of the sixth. Kaitley Jackson, Barton and Hart all reached base safely and later scored to put the Lady Redhounds ahead 7-4, heading into the bottom of the inning.

"We hit the ball pretty well tonight. We scored seven runs, and had a couple of girls hit home runs," said Hart. "I feel like we should have been able to hold on for a win with that many runs scored. We just struggled on defense."

Rockcastle scored five runs in the bottom of the sixth, putting them on top 9-7, in what turned out to be the final score.

With the loss, the Lady Redhounds fall to 2-5 on the season. They return to action today, playing host to Boyle County.
