Just one game last night. Charlottesville has already cleared the South, so to speak, and they are waiting for Winchester and Strasburg to finish up the North semifinals.
Winchester 16, Strasburg 6 (The Royals scored 13 runs in the 5th inning, making the outcome rather obvious.)
Hitter of the Day
Our HOD is Winchester’s Dillon Reed, from Santa Fe CC, who went 3-5, with 2 runs, 4 RBIs, a walk, and a home run. Dillon hit 347/414/413 in 167 at-bats in the regular season, and is now 7-20 in the playoffs. Dillon will be attending Flagler this fall.
