Onda came into the game in the eighth inning as a relief pitcher after James Ziemba loaded the bases without recording an out. Over four innings of work, Onda struck out eight batters and allowed two runs on two hits and a walk to earn his fourth win of the season. Onda’s sacrifice fly came after Daniel Nichols lead off the inning with a double and advanced to third base on a passed ball.
The Turks held a 6-2 lead after seven innings, but two of the runners Ziemba left for Onda crossed home plate to cut the lead to 6-4. In the ninth inning, Waynesboro leveled the score on a 2-RBI triple from Mike Marcinko.
Harrisonburg starter Boone Mokry recorded two RBIs in his first at-bat of the season with a double to center field. Mokry had to hit after third baseman Matt Rose was ejected for arguing balls and strikes and a disagreement between managers over substitutions forced designated hitter Brandon Gold to play third base.
The win improves Harrisonburg’s record to 19-11. Waynesboro falls to 18-14 with the loss.
