Sluggers Crush Norcom; Take Greenbrier to Last Out
Jackson Burke’s one-hitter on the mound and a bevy of hits and aggressive base running powered the Oaks baseball team to a 10-0 win over Norcom.
A day earlier, Norfolk Collegiate nearly upset Greenbrier Christian Academy, top ranked in the area and the state.
The team held a slim one-run lead in the seventh inning with Greenbrier down to the last out before the Gators connected on a homer to earn the win.
Chandler Gillikin had the highlight for Collegiate, a first-inning grand slam, his second home run of the season.
The team is 8-10 on the season. It plays at Hampton Roads Academy on Tuesday and at home against Cape Henry on Friday.
