Huge eighth pushes Turks past ‘Jacks
After a huge nine-run eighth inning by the Harrisonburg Turks (14-17), including a three-run homer by Bryan Arias, the Covington Lumberjacks fall 13-4. The Turks were down early after a rough first inning by Carter Bach (0-1), but came back and eventually took the lead heading into the top of the ninth, where Hunter Seay (2-0) came in to get his second decision of the season.
Everyone on the Turks lineup scored a run but Austin Embler, showing a good team effort and a good on base percentage all around. Ty Andrus, Luke Nussman, and Zach Kuchmaner all had multi-hits in last night’s game. Andrus went 3-for-5 with two RBI and two runs. Nussman had his first good performance for the Turks, going 2-for-5 with two RBI and a run. Kuchmaner had a good night, going 2-for-3 with a RBI and two runs. Arias hit his third home run of the season. Leading the way for the Lumberjacks were Allan Berrios and Ryan Alvarez. Both of them had multi-hits on the night. Berrios went 2-for-5 with a RBI and Alvarez went 2-for-4 with a run scored.
Seay worked 2.0 innings, only allowing one hit and struck out three. Chris Lugo (1-1) took the loss for the Jacks, also working 2.0 innings, but allowing 11 earned on seven hits.
