Let’s take a quick look at former Valley Leaguers who performed well on either Saturday or Sunday. I already covered Friday.
- Pete Soporowski (Staunton 2017) threw eight shutout innings for Rider on Saturday, allowing only two hits, no walks, and striking out nine. He earned a game score of 87. That was his first appearance in 2021- heck of a way to start!
- Dylan Burns (Waynesboro 2016) threw seven shutout innings for South Florida on Saturday. He allowed two hit, two walks, and struck out six to earn a game score of 77. Burns, the 15th best reliever in the Valley League in 2016, is now 1-2, 3.38 in six games and 24 innings, with only six walks against 30 strikeouts.
- Seth Caddell (Staunton 2018) went 2-3 for East Carolina (against Illinois State), with three runs, four RBIs, a double and a home run. He’s now hitting .310/.390/.676 in 71 at-bats, with 16 runs, two doubles, eight home runs, and 24 RBIs.
- Jack Wilson (Harrisonburg 2018) went 3-4 for Western Kentucky, with two runs, six RBIs, a double and a home run. Wilson was off to a bit of a slow start; he’s now at .238/.405/.397 in 63 at-bats, with seven doubles and a home run.
- Mark Timmins (Winchester 2019) was fantastic for Omaha, allowing four hits, one earned run, one walk, and striking out 10 in eight innings. He earned a game score of 79. It was his first start of the year, and he’s now 2-1, 5.28, with 16 K’s in 15 1/3 total innings.
- Lael Lockhart (Woodstock 2019) threw 4 2/3 shutout innings for Arkansas, allowing only two hits, two walks, and striking out nine. The 5th best hitter in the Valley in 2019, Lockhart is now 1-1, 2.38, with 31 strikeouts in 22 2/3 innings pitched.
