There’s good news and bad news for hitters having to face Lucas Gordon of Sherman Oaks Notre Dame in the coming weeks.
The bad news is he struck out six and allowed zero hits in three shutout innings of relief in his latest appearance after coming back from elbow surgery. Notre Dame defeated Chaminade 9-4. The good news for hitters is he’s only adding one inning a week, so next week he’ll only pitch four innings.
