Results From Saturday June 30

And the Valley League roars into the last day of June with 83 total runs scored in 5 games… even though the boxscores reflect “only” 82 (a run is missing in the Staunton-Waynesboro game).

Here we go- all five games played last night:

Results

  • Front Royal 9, Strasburg 0
  • Winchester 7, Purcellville 4
  • New Market 11, Woodstock 8
  • Harrisonburg 5, Charlottesville 2
  • Staunton 18, Waynesboro 9 (The box shows that the Braves scored an astonishing 16 runs in the last three innings of this one- I would have liked to see that!)

Hitter of the Day

Luke Jackson UNC Pembroke 2018You just knew the HOD would have to come from this game, right? The HOD is, indeed, a hitter from the Staunton vs Waynesboro game. It’s Staunton’s Luke Jackson, from UNC Pembroke, who went 5-6, with 4 runs, 4 RBIs, 2 doubles, a home run, and a stolen base as well. Luke raised his slash lines to 321/361/446 in 56 at-bats this summer for the Braves. For Pembroke this spring, he hit 397/469/652 in 204 at-bats. Luke joins his college and summer teammates Seth Hartings and Trey Jacobs as a HOD at least once- the three of them now have four total awards.
