Pinch-hitter Nolan Greckel drew a bases-loaded walk in the bottom of the sixth inning to drive in the eventual winning run that lifted North Cobb to a 4-3 win Friday against Cherokee.

Cherokee scored three runs in the top of the sixth to take a one-run lead, but North Cobb’s Tyler Martin and Trevor Devine singled to start its half of the inning. Billy Rose put down a sacrifice bunt and was safe on an error to load the bases.

Chandler Sievers tied the game with an RBI single, and then Greckel walked to give North Cobb the 4-3 lead.

Spencer Ashley led Cherokee, going 2-for-3 with an RBI, and Austin Pharr was 2-for-4.

Cherokee (1-5) will host Stephenson for another non-region game today.
