Four games were played last night:


  • Harrisonburg 12, Covington 4
  • Woodstock 17, Front Royal 10 (Bandit defense held in the fourth quarter)
  • New Market 9, Strasburg 6
  • Staunton 7, Charlottesville 3

Hitter of the Day

Well, two home runs is two home runs, so today’s HOD is, for the second day in a row, Woodstock’s Jaylon Lee! From Eastern Mennonite, the senior went 2-4 with two home runs and three RBIs in the Bandits’ beatdown of the Cardinals. Lee now has four home runs in his last eight at-bats over two days, along with seven RBIs. He now leads the league with five home runs and 22 RBIs, and is slashing .319/.358/.745 in 47 total at-bats- oh, and he has five doubles and two stolen bases as well. I think it’s safe to say that he’s on a bit of a hot streak.
