Hitter and Pitcher of the Day, Thursday June 27

Storms rumbled through the Valley last night, postponing/suspending two games, but the game in Charlottesville almost went long enough to make up for it.

Results

  • Staunton at Purcellville PPD
  • Covington at Front Royal Suspended
  • Waynesboro 10, Winchester 6
  • Strasburg 8, Charlottesville 5 (12 innings)
