Harrisonburg rallies from 6-0 deficit, defeats Aldie, 7-6
Brandon Gold, the Turks player who scored the game-winning run, had tied the game at 6-6 in the bottom of the ninth with a bases loaded single that brought home two runs. He was also the winning pitcher after he threw three relief innings without allowing a run or hit. Gold had started the game at third base.
The Turks had appeared to tie the game in the seventh inning when Matt Rose hit a ball over the left field fence, but the would-be three-run home run was ruled foul. Harrisonburg manager Bob Wease was ejected from the game after arguing the call.
Aldie took a substantial 6-0 lead after scoring five runs in the top of the sixth inning. Zack Holt, Joe Consolmagno, Garrett Vrbanic and Reese Strong all had RBI hits.
The win snaps a three game losing streak for Harrisonburg, which improves its season record to 18-10. Aldie falls to an even 14-14 with the loss. The Turks travel to New Market to play the Rebels at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.
