Dunbar pulls Nitro out of jam for win

nHURRICANE, W.Va. -- After Nitro got mercy ruled by archrival and sectional opponent St. Albans late in the season, Wildcats Coach Steve Pritchard said it would take a monumental effort to beat the Red Dragons and make a postseason run.

But last week, Pritchard and Nitro swept St. Albans before winning another Tuesday, this one a 4-2 decision over Parkersburg South.

The Wildcats are back in familiar territory: the regional final.

Nitro earned Tuesday's win over the Patriots (25-12) in the Class AAA Region 4 semifinals in a game that was moved to Lola Meeks Field in Hurricane because of anticipated weather concerns.

The Wildcats have reached six consecutive regional finals.

nitro-n

CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Don't look now, but it looks like the Nitro High baseball team could have another player chosen high in the Major League First-Year Player Draft.

A whirlwind senior season for catcher Korey Dunbar might result in a selection in the top five rounds of the draft, which is set for June 4-6.

So, it's not if he'll get drafted, but where.

Dunbar was 1-for-1 with two walks in a 12-2 victory over Capital at Brandon Matthew Sneed Field on Wednesday. He's batting .444 with six home runs and 22 RBI and has only one error.

Among the scouts on hand to watch Dunbar were from the Cardinals, Nationals and Pirates.

Korey Dunbar is Diamond Gamer of the Week

nitro-nNitro High School's Korey Dunbar is the recipient of our Diamond Gamer of the Week award this week. Korey is the sole senior and leader of this group of Wildcats, doing whatever it may take to win, including a little pitching duty.

Now, Korey will tell you he's no pitcher, but the stats don't lie. Last week he pitched 8 innings and struck out 22 batters, with 20 of those coming from a single game. He also failed to give up a run on only 3 hits.

When asked about his success Korey replied, "my dedication to the game has really helped me. Whether it's in hitting lessons, work in the weight room, practice, school; I really try to get after it and work hard in everything I do."
