The Rode Show: Gore Fans Nine

By Nathan Rode

RED SPRINGS, NC—North Carolina has had a mild winter and good start to the season in terms of weather, but temperatures plummeted in the last few days and LHP MacKenzie Gore (Whiteville HS, NC) took the hill in a biting wind for his second regular season start.

Whiteville dominated Red Springs HS, NC, cruising to a 12-0 victory in five innings. Gore, an East Carolina recruit, pitched four perfect innings. He struck out nine of the 12 batters he faced on 54 pitches, throwing mostly fastballs. He touched 94 mph in the first inning and settled into the 88-91 range for most of the appearance. His curveball was 73-75 with sharpness.

Next up in North Carolina, SS Tanner Morris (Miller School, VA) is in Raleigh for a couple days and then we’ll head west to see OF Austin Beck (North Davidson HS, NC).
