Results From Wednesday, July 18

All five games were played last night, with one offensive explosion (Turks), two wonderful pitching performances, and three guys who walked three times…

Results

  • Winchester 4, New Market 1 (Royals alone in 3rd in the North)
  • Strasburg 3, Charlottesville 2 (Express pull closer to Rebels)
  • Harrisonburg 18, Covington 8 (Turks move closer to Tom Sox and Generals)
  • Purcellville 9, Woodstock 0 (Cannons in first by a half game)
  • Staunton 10, Waynesboro 5 (Braves also stay ahead of Turks, pull closer to Sox and Gens)

Hitter of the Day

Our hitter of the day is pretty clearly Harrisonburg’s Paul Castillo, from Eastern Florida State College. Paul went 2-5, with 3 runs, 6 RBIs, a walk, and 2 home runs. (The multi-home run game has become almost normal over the past week or so.) Paul, who is planning to attend Jacksonville this fall, is now hitting 219/298/395 in 114 at-bats this summer.

Pitcher(s) of the Day

So we have two guys who tied with a game score of 78, which ties both of them for the 3rd best start of the entire season:

  • Strasburg’s Chance Hroch, from New Mexico State: 8 innings, 1 hit, 2 runs, 1 earned run, 0 walks, and 4 K’s, win, 102 pitches. Chance is now 2-1, 2.91, with 33 K’s in 37 summer innings.
  • Purcellville’s Will Wheeler, from USC Upstate: 7 innings, 1 hit, 0 runs, 4 walks, and 7 K’s, win, only 51 pitches! (Could that be an error? Only 51 pitches to get 21 outs is pretty impressive.) Will is now 2-2, 2.27, with 21 K’s in 27 2/3 innings for the Cannons.

Others of Note

  • Dylan Gentry, Winchester: 8 1/3 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 4 K’s, win (68- enough to win most days)
  • Sean McCracken, Charlottesville: 5 Ip, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K’s (62- Sean channeling 2017!)
  • Buckshot Flynn, Staunton: 5 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 7 K’s, win (59)
