Waynesboro romps at Rockbridge, 11-2
Jeff Conley pitched six shutout innings, Patrick Mazeika reached base five times, and Sikes Orvis hit his first homer of the season, lifting Waynesboro to an 11-2 win at Rockbridge Monday night.
Conley (junior, Alderson-Broaddus) picked up his first win of the season with his effort – striking out six, walking two and allowing three hits in six innings on the mound.
Mazeika (freshman, Stetson) was 2-for-3 with three RBI. He was hit by two pitches – Mazeika has now been hit by 11 pitches in 14 games – and also walked once to improve his batting average to .400 and his on-base percentage to .578.
A two-run Mazeika double in the ninth was followed by the homer by Orvis (junior, Ole Miss) over the 18-foot-high wall in right field.
Anthony Iacomini (junior, Cortland State) and Tyler Bocock (sophomore, Stetson) each had two hits and two RBI for Waynesboro, which extended its lead over Covington for the fourth and final playoff spot in the South Division to three games.
The Generals return home Tuesday night at 7 p.m. with a game against South Division leader New Market.
