But will the horde translate into wins? As anyone in the know will tell you, baseball is a funny game — but the class, full of lively arms and fundamental base- ball DNA, is as good as it gets for miles around. Blake's rake Area pitchers won't much fancy the prospect of dealing to the sweet-swinging Blake Gipson, who hit .351 with 33 hits and 18 RBI a season ago… also sported a .784 OPS (on base and slugging percentage) while striking out just 10 times in 94 at-bats. With another year of diligent work in the cage behind him, expect more of the same this spring. Delivery specialists Any way one slices it, step- ping in the box this season in Pikeville will represent quite the chore. In ace Cody Whaley, oppo- nents will face a seasoned pitcher — not a thrower — who went 7-2 in 11 appearances a season ago and finished with a 1.01 ERA (earned run average) in 62 2 ⁄3 innings... in a word, he's stingy — giving up just 14 runs while strik- ing out 74 batsmen. Ouch. And one gets no consolation prize in methane dealer Jordan Gay, whose fastball produced a 5-1 mark last year… finished the 2017 cam- paign with a 1.25 ERA in 33 2 ⁄3 innings… allowed 26 hits, 11 runs, walked 14, struck out 27. As one-two punches go, it's a solid one. 2018 Schedule February 28 at Wilson Hunt March 2 Northern Nash March 6 Rosewood March 7 at North Lenoir March 9 Wilson Hunt March 13 New Bern March 20 D.H.
