CORBIN — By John Middleton for the Times-Tribune

HARLAN — The Harlan All-Stars escaped from another big deficit Thursday only to see Ben Phillips make sure Corbin walked away with the win.

The Corbin All-Stars tacked on two more runs in the third inning. Spencer Gilbert reached base on a walk. Cooney later reached on an error to short that scored Gilbert. Cooney scored when Garner Chandler singled to center field.

Josh Turner slugged Harlan back into the game in the fifth inning.

Harris reached first on a fielder's choice. Jones followed by drawing a walk. Steele drove in Harris with a single through the infield. Turner then cleared the bases with a shot over the fence in center field.

Corbin regained the lead with a run in the bottom of the inning.

Abe Barnes reached base on a walk. Barnes later scored when Manon singled up the middle of the infield.

Harlan tied the game with a run in the sixth inning. Ethan Cornett led off the inning with a walk. Cornett advanced to second and third on wild pitches. James Chasteen drove in the runner with a single to center field.

The Corbin All-Stars threatened to end the game in the bottom of the sixth. Corbin had the bases loaded with two outs, but Chasteen caught a hard-hit line drive from Cooley to end the inning.

After holding Harlan scoreless in the top of the seventh, Corbin ended the game with three runs in the bottom of the inning.

Chandler led off the inning with a single to center field. Manon followed with a double to left. Phillips then delivered a walk-off home run to left.

Turner had a homer and a double to pace Harlan at the plate. Steele added a double and a single. Chasteen delivered two singles. Kobe Burkhart doubled, while Harris and Jones each added a single.
