PANAMA CITY, Fla. - The George Rogers Clark High School baseball team opened play in the Panama City Invitational on Monday with a 9-8 win over Coral Gables.
"They were one of those teams that you see all of the time down here all of the time," Clark coach Larry Allison said this morning. "They were very good and they didn't make many mistakes. For us to (beat them) it was a feather in our cap. Our kids competed all day long."
The Cardinals got a solid outing from starter Jeremy Greene, who pitched six innings, giving up five runs on eight hits. Greene recorded three strikeouts before giving way to Cody Christopher in the seventh inning.
Christopher gave up three runs - one earned - and got the big out with a strikeout to end the game with the tying run at second base.
