Generals roll to 15-5 win over New Market

Waynesboro jumped out to a 13-0 lead after four innings and coasted to an easy 15-5 win at New Market Saturday night.

Jacob Hoyle and Julian Ridings each had three hits to pace Waynesboro’s 16-hit attack.

Starting pitcher Rob Curran (1-0) picked up the win, allowing four runs on eight hits in six innings of work.

The win improves the Generals to 4-3 on the 2012 season.
