Generals, Braves split rain-soaked doubleheader

wlogo2Waynesboro got an unearned run in the fifth to take Game 1, 3-2, and Staunton rallied from an early 4-2 deficit to win a rain-shortened Game 2, 8-5.

Game 1 started in the fourth inning as the two teams completed a game suspended on July 1 with the score tied at 2-2. Waynesboro scored in the top of the fifth. Tyler Bocock (sophomore, Stetson) led off the inning by reaching on an error. With two outs, Bocock, at second base after a passed ball, scored on an RBI single to center by Brian Beard (freshman, Old Dominion).

Tyler Fox (freshman, Nebraska-Omaha) picked up the win with five and a third innings of scoreless relief, giving up five hits, striking out three and walking one.

In Game 2, Waynesboro jumped out a 4-2 lead in the second on the strength of a three-run homer by Alex Mortenson (sophomore, Nebraska-Omaha), his first of the season, but Staunton gave Waynesboro starter Latten Gailbraith (junior, Louisiana Tech) fits all night long, eventually touching up the righty for eight runs, seven earned, on 11 hits in five and two-thirds inning.

Bocock and Patrick Mazeika (freshman, Stetson) each had two hits in Game 2.

The two teams play again Saturday night in Waynesboro. The game is the WSVA Waynesboro Generals Game of the Week. First pitch is at 7 p.m. The pregame show with Chris Graham begins at 6:30 p.m.
