JoJo Woods, Taylor Sandefur key Waynesboro Generals win

wlogo2Waynesboro trailed 3-0 in the top of the first, the bases were loaded, no one was out. Exit Ben Krusen, who had a nightmarish first start of the 2013 Valley League season, and enter Taylor Sandefur, who exuded what seemed to be an easy confidence upon getting the ball from Coach Mike Bocock.

Sandefur, a junior from Western Carolina, tapped gloves with his infield teammates before warming up on the mound, signaling, basically, Hey, I got this.

“I like to let my guys know, Hey, I’m going to go in here and compete my tail off, and I’m going to go out here and give it to y’all, y’all take care of me, and I’ll take care of y’all back,” said Sandefur, who went on to throw five scoreless innings of relief in what turned out to be an 11-5 Waynesboro win over the Winchester Royals on Wednesday night.

The W was bolstered by nine scoreless innings of relief from the Waynesboro bullpen and an eight-run bottom of the first that answered the Royals’ five-spot in the top of the first.

JoJo Woods (junior, Central Florida) got the first-inning rally going with a leadoff single and a mad dash around the bases on a double to left by Ben Boykin (junior, College of Charleston). Then, in his second plate appearance of the inning, Woods drew a two-out walk before coming around to score on an error on a grounder off the bat of Tyler Bocock (sophomore, Stetson) to score the eighth and final run of the rally.

“It’s kind of tough starting off the game like that. You just try to keep your focus and grind out at bats,” said Woods, who finished 2-for-4 to improve his batting average on the 2013 VBL season to .310.

Sandefur, for his part, picked up his first win of the VBL season to improve to 1-1.

“I just went out there, threw my fastball in, tried to control the inner half, and then expanded the zone away with fastballs and sliders, and really kept the hitters off-balance and tried to execute the pitches that Coach Mitchell was calling,” Sandefur said.
