Repeat Effort?

Dr. Pepper tries to win back-to-back tourney titles

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons / Sports Editor

CORBIN — The Corbin Little League, Minor League and Coach Pitch championship games are set to be played today at Corbin’s Rotary Park, beginning at 2:30 p.m.

In Minor League play it will be the Marlins facing off against the Diamondbacks, while TECO Coal will battle Dr. Pepper in the Little League finals.

The Diamondbacks cruised to a 9-1 win over the Red Sox to advance to the finals, thanks to a 3-for-3 effort by Cameron Combs at the plate. Combs tallied three runs and three RBI in the win as well.

The Red Sox took an early lead, plating a run in the top of the first, but that was all the offense the team could muster. The Diamondbacks scored two in the first, two more in the third and five in the fourth inning to help seal the victory.

The Marlins advanced to the championship game via an 11-4 win over the Angels, setting up today’s finals.

In Little League action, TECO Coal breezed past Davis Salvage, 15-5. The win follows a regular season mark of 12-4 for TECO Coal. TECO Coal will face Dr. Pepper, two-time defending regular season champion and tournament champion from a year ago. Dr. Pepper finished this season with a 14-2 record before knocking off Hometown Bank, 12-2 in Thursday’s semifinals.

Dr. Pepper jumped ahead 4-0 in the first inning and added two runs in the second to push the gap to 6-0.

Hometown Bank struck for two runs in the top of the third inning, but it wasn’t enough to save them as Dr. Pepper added six runs in the bottom of the fifth inning on a three-run home run by Luke Ledington and a walk-off two-run double by Boston Hardesty.
