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

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.
