GBC 9 Uâ€™s strength has always been there our hitting. When we swept the Georgia teams in at East Cobb earlier in the spring, the parents from the Georgia teams said they have never seen a team hit it as well as us.
Well, when Luke Gessell led off with a walk in the bottom of the first and GBC trailing 1-0, it was on. After Luke stole 2nd, Kameron Pruitt, singled him in. Then Evan Edwards hit what appeared to be home run over center but the call was reversed and he was awarded a ground rule double. Then Ceasar Trejo doubled in both of them. Andrew Robinson also had a nice 2 run double in left center with the bases loaded. When the 45 minute hitting barrage was over, GBC was up 12-1 on the undefeated Stars. They were shell shocked. We scored 6 more in the bottom of the 2nd to make it 18-1. Knoxville then scored 3 in the top of the 3rd to make it 18-4. There is a 15 run slaughter rule after 3 innings in AAU. We needed 1 run to end it. We got it with 2 outs when Luke Robinson scored when Walton Chamblee reached first on a low throw to first. Walton also pitched 3 innings for the win.
GBC got the number 1 seed for bracket play in the double elimination tourney and will play one game tomorrow.
Another fine update by Jimmy Chamblee for greensborosports.com in Orlando, Florida. Tune in on Thursday and follow the team in their quest for the National Championship.
