Joe Williams, Aldie: 7 IP, 5 hits, 0 runs, 1 BB, 0 K’s, win (66)
Luke Burnidge, Front Royal: 5 IP, 3 hits, 0 runs, 3 BB, 6 K’s, game score of 64. Look, Luke officially received the loss in this game, but I can’t see how. He didn’t allow a run in his outing, which makes it impossible to lose anyway, but Aldie didn’t score until the 8th inning, long after Luke had exited the game. I would be asking about that decision if I were him.
William Montgomerie, Waynesboro: 7 IP, 4 hits, 3 runs, 2 earned, 2 BB, 10 K’s, loss (71)
Nick Margevicius, Staunton: 7.1 IP, 3 hits, 2 runs, 1 earned, 2 BB, 5 K’s, win (69)
