Corbin falls short

Hazard defeats Corbin for District 4 title

CORBIN — By John Stepp For The Times Tribune

CORBIN – With only two games standing between them and the state tournament, the Corbin Junior League All-Stars fell short, losing to the Hazard All-Stars 10-1 in the final game of the District 4 Tournament on Tuesday.

The game was dominated by Hazard pitcher Griffin Wells, who allowed just one run in 5 1/3 innings.

Wells limited Corbin to just one hit on the night, while striking out eight batters.

“Griffin is a heck of a pitcher for us,” Hazard coach Mike Morris said. “He is such a great kid. He throws the ball really well, and was on his game tonight. We are at our best when he is throwing like that. He is tough to beat.”

Hazard never relinquished the lead after starting the game with two runs in the bottom of the first inning.

Corbin’s Drew Carter scored his team’s only run in the top of the second inning after Tanner Barnes reached on a Hazard throwing error.

Hazard added three more runs in the bottom of the second and five more runs in the bottom of the fifth to seal their fate to the state tournament.

“We didn’t make some plays when we had the opportunity and they got the lead and did what they had to do. They’re a good ball team,” Corbin coach C.E. Britain said. “You can’t give them anything, you have to make them earn it, and the pop ups and the balls we let get down, they made us pay for it.”

Hazard was powered by Wells and Corey Ratliff on offense, who combined for five hits and five RBI.

Ethan Wilson started on the mound for Corbin and pitched four innings, while Corey Ledington finished the final two innings of the game.

Despite falling short of a trip to the state tournament, Britain said he was pleased with the run his team made.

“I am thrilled to death with the progress we have made and the season we’ve had,” he said. “We’ve got a good program going, and this group has set the bar high for the next group of kids coming up behind them. We’ve got a good thing going, so I’m very happy with them.”
