Four games were played on this day, and all of them had playoff seeding implications. (Playoff update coming in a bit!)


  • Harrisonburg 8, Staunton 4 (Gm 1)
  • Staunton 7, Harrisonburg 1 (Gm 2)
  • Winchester 6, Woodstock 5
  • Strasburg 7, Purcellville 3

Hitter of the Day

The hitter of the day is Staunton’s Cole Ragone, from William & Mary! In the second game of the double header, Ragone went 3-4, with two runs scored, an RBI, double, and two triples. He’s now hitting .284/.365/.471 in 102 at-bats, with four doubles, three triples, three home runs, 13 RBIs, and 10 stolen bases. I believe this is the only multi-triple game of the year thus far.

Pitcher of the Day

That second game of the doubleheader was great for Staunton, as our pitcher of the day, Jalon Long, had a fantastic game on the hill for this one, giving Staunton players the award sweep. Long went six innings, allowing four hits, one run and two walks while striking out five. He earned the win and a game score of 63. On the summer so far, Long is 1-4, 9.00, with 29 strikeouts in 25 innings.
