Corning-Painted Post Little League Claims District 6 Championship After Big 6th Inning
ELMIRA HEIGHTS, NY (WENY) - The Corning Painted Post 10-12 year old little league climbed back in the final inning to claim the District 6 Championship over Horseheads on Tuesday, 5-2. Corning-PP was down 1-0 after a Brendan Clark home run, but then the bats got hot in the top of the 6th. Jake Powers, Alex Kolpien, Kendall Curreri, and Gavin Walker were all part of the final inning spark. Horseheads' Micah Hayes tried to help his team rally back with an RBI single in the bottom of the 6th, but it would fall short.
Corning-PP will now advance to the Sectional Tournament which is set to begin on Saturday, July 13th in Cortland.
WENY's Ryan Campbell brings you the highlight and post game interviews with Corning-PP Head Coach, Bob Price, and Pitcher, Kendall Curreri.
