You can call them the road warriors, the cardiac pack or any other number of nicknames, but the fact of the matter is that the Greenbrier baseball team has another date with the state championship.

The Wolfpack made it dramatic Monday night, but they picked up a sweep at Whitewater to make it to the final.

It took late game heroics in both contests, including extra innings in game one, and one stat really told the story of the night for Greenbrier.

They scored eleven runs in the doubleheader. All eleven came with two outs.

"All year that's kind of how we've done it," said Head Coach Chris Wilkins. "We've had really good at bats early in the game that have kind of kept us in it, and then with two outs, I don't know. We've kind of always found a way to get it done. I don't want to jinx us, but I feel like we've just done a really good job with two strikes and two outs all season."

Greenbrier now has a shot to avenge last year's championship loss. They play the winner of today's game between Pope and Starr's Mill. The championship series starts this Saturday.
