Results From Friday, June 29

All five games were played last night once again- shocking, I know. The forecast makes it look like we won’t have rain at least through Wednesday, making those games most likely to happen, too. So get out there and watch a game somewhere!

Results from last night:

Results

  • Winchester 8, Waynesboro 4 (3 wins in a row for Royals)
  • Strasburg 8, Woodstock 6 (Also 3 wins in a row for Express)
  • Purcellville 9, Front Royal 3
  • Covington 4, Charlottesville 1 (3 in a row for Jacks, too. Jacks were 1 game up on the Sox before the game; now the lead’s 2)
  • Staunton 4, Harrisonburg 3

Hitter of the Day

Sergio Lopez St Thomas 2018Sergio Lopez had his fingerprints all over the Cannons’ win last night. He hit a 3-run home run in the 3rd inning, and an RBI triple in the 5th.
