Colonels pick up ninth straight win

CORBIN — By Les Dixon / Staff Writer

WHITLEY COUNTY — The Whitley County Colonels cruised to their ninth straight win to start the 2014 season, taking just five innings to get past the Bell County Bobcats in an 11-0 rout.

Ryan Short racked up four RBI in a 2-for-3 effort to lead the Colonels' offensive explosion. Short singled in a pair of runs on each of his two hits, which came in the third and fourth innings.

Whitley County's Michael Harris kept the Bobcats off balance all night on the mound, while also keeping them off the scoreboard for all five innings. Harris pitched a three-hit shutout,  while striking out five batters and walking none in the win.

Austin Ysidro went 2-for-2 with an RBI, while Cody Lewis was 0-for-3 in the win, but accounted for three RBI in the win thanks to a trio of sacrifices with runners in scoring position.

The Colonels jumped ahead in the top of the first inning and never looked back. Harris connected for a sac-fly that brought Casey Crisologo in from third to put Whitley County on top, 1-0.

All was quiet until the Colonels broke out for six runs in the top of the third inning, stretching the gap to 7-0. Whitley County added three runs in the fourth inning to make it a 10-0 game and sealed the win with a run in the fifth after Harris shut down any hopes of a Bell County comeback try when he struck out two of the final three batters he faced.

Stevie Watson and Jordan Crusenberry each went 1-for-3 in the game, while Watson scored a pair of runs and Crusenbery tallied one run scored.

The Colonels will put their unbeaten streak on the line again today when they travel to Madison Southern to face the 2-5 Eagles.
