Generals lose home opener
Story by Chris Graham
The 2009 Waynesboro Generals probably pack up the tent. The 2010 Generals battled back and had the tying run on base in the ninth inning after falling down 9-3 in the fifth.
Moral victories can sometimes ring hollow, but Waynesboro’s 11-9 loss to Rockbridge Sunday night felt significant somehow.
“We played hard. Down 9-3, and we made it a game. I know it’s early in the year, but what I see of these kids, I really like,” Waynesboro manager Derek McDaniel said.
The fourspot that the Rapids put up in the fifth inning, after Waynesboro starter Jeremy Thompson (Patrick Henry Community College, freshman) had gotten the first two Rockbridge batters out to start off the fifth, made it 9-3 and put the game seemingly out of reach.
