Corbin White stays alive


By Les Dixon / Sports Editor

CLAY COUNTY — The Corbin White 9 & 10-year-old All-Stars spotted McCreary County a 2-0 lead in the first inning, but managed to fight back and advance in the District 4 Tournament with a convincing 12-3 victory Wednesday.

After failing to score in the first inning, Mel Chandler’s squad opened the floodgates for the remainder of the game by scoring a run in the second inning, five runs in the third, two runs in the fourth, three runs in the fifth and one run in the sixth inning to wrap up the victory.

Corbin White pounded out eight hits in the win, as Cody Cox led the way with two hits and two RBI. Ben Phillips finished the game with one hit and three RBI while Garner Chandler, Cade Cooney, Ethan Wine, Michael Todd and Luke Ledington each had a hit in the win.

“I believe we are really coming together,” Corbin White coach Mel Chandler said. “Me and the coaches talked about it and we really believe we are beginning to gel at the right time.

“We’ve got a lot of good kids on this team and this is our sixth game playing together and I believe they are getting a feel for each other,” he added. “They are gaining confidence and starting to battle. One of the big things is that the bottom of the line-up is starting to hit well.”

Corbin White also received solid pitching efforts by Garner Chandler, Steven Manon and Cooney.

Manon tossed two and 2/3 of an inning while limiting McCreary County to no hits and finishing the game with six strikeouts. Cooney tossed one and 1/3 of an inning and only surrendered a walk while fanning three batters. Garner Chandler pitched one inning and struck out one batter while allowing two hits.

“I thought our pitchers did a great job,” Mel Chandler said. “I really wasn’t too worried when we fell behind early. I knew we had a team that could battle back.”

Corbin White will be back in action tonight at 8 p.m.
