Baseball: Sharks, Braves roll; Tigers, Seahawks work OT

St. James High pitcher Kasey Crooks single-handedly outhit and outscored visiting Wilson in an 8-1 victory that allowed the Sharks to stay alone on top of the Region 7-3A standings.

Crooks hurled a no-hitter and went 2-for-3 with an RBI at the plate to lead the Sharks (15-4 overall, 8-1 region) to a season-series sweep over the Tigers on Tuesday at Shark Park.

St. James struck for five runs in the second inning to break the game wide open and Crooks stayed on cruise control. He allowed Wilson’s lone run in the fifth following a walk, one of only two of the day, and an error. Crooks struck out six batters on the day.

The Sharks also got solid hitting performances from Trent Revis, who went 2-for-2 with an RBI double, and Caleb Duggan, who went 2-for-4 with two RBIs. Dillon LeDuc drove in a pair of runs on his only hit and Zach Sanders went 1-for-2 with two runs scored and an RBI.

The Sharks can clinch the region title Friday with a win at Socastee.

Hunter Renfrow went 3-for-3 with three runs scored, Finn Melko went 2-for-4 with four RBIs and Dalton Smith went 2-for-3 with three RBIs for Socastee, which hosts St. James for the region title on Friday.
