The Halifax County High School varsity baseball team clobbered Martinsville, 23-0, Friday.

Halifax cracked 20 hits and got strong pitching from Alex Lowery. The Comet hurler worked three innings, striking out eight of nine batters. He alllowed one groundout.

Shaun Perkins had four RBI on a 3-for-3 day, while A. Lowery went one for three with three RBI. Troy Ferrell went two-for-three with threee RBI.

On Wednesday, Christian Worley spun a no-hitter with 16 strikeouts in a 5-0 win over Dan River.

Halifax collected seven hits, with Dylan Clark and Joey Duffer adding two hits apiece.

Coach Kenneth Day said, “we’ve played some really good baseball the last three games, two really good teams in Tunstall and Dan River.”

The pitchers are throwing strikes and the defense has been strong. And the offense has been fairly potent. Day said the Comets have gotten key hits in important situations.

Halifax gets Patrick County on Tuesday.

The spring break is coming shortly, and Halifax will soon face more challenging competition on its Myrtle Beach S.C. trip.

Day said the Comets would face some very tough teams down there, allowing the Halifax squad to work on overall improvement.
