Pitching on just four days’ rest is not common in high school baseball. But recently, Camden’s Grey Hoke has been anything but ordinary.Hoke, a 6-foot-3 senior left-hander, threw a three-hit gem last Friday in the Bulldogs’ 2-1 win over top-ranked A.C. Flora. He was even better on Wednesday, taking a no-hitter into the seventh inning before allowing a pair of hits in the seventh as the Bulldogs doubled-up visiting Dreher, 6-3.The win gave Denny Beckley’s charges a 5-3 record in Region 4-AAA, good for a tie for third in the seven-team circuit along with River Bluff which downed the Dogs, 7-5, one night earlier.The story on this night, though, was Hoke who faced just 21 batters in the first six frames on a night in which he gave up a single and a double, fanned nine while issuing two walks.
