Rockbridge smacks down Waynesboro, 10-0

wlogo2Rockbridge got a pair of two-run homers from Scott Fabre and seven scoreless innings from Jacob Christensen to fuel a 10-0 win over Waynesboro Sunday night.

Fabre had come into the game with one home run in the 2013 Valley League season, but both of his two-run shots, in the third and fifth, were no-doubters, clearing the scoreboard in left-center.

After the second shot, starting pitcher Chad Farmer (junior, Appalachian State) drilled Rockbridge designated hitter Ray Guerrini on the left shoulder, triggering a benches-clearing brawl that resulted in the ejections of Farmer and Waynesboro bench coach Jeff Beard.

Following the fracas, the Rapids seized control, scoring a run in the sixth on a wild pitch by reliever Thomas Young (freshman, Western Carolina), adding three in the eighth on a throwing error and a pair of RBI singles by Ryan Perkins and Joey Wilson, and two more in the ninth on a two-run triple by Will Leathers.

Christensen, somehow, kept the Generals off the scoreboard despite having trouble with the strike zone, walking six batters and throwing more balls (54) than strikes (51) in seven innings. In spite of his troubles with control, Christensen limited Waynesboro to two hits, a pair of singles by Patrick Mazeika (freshman, Stetson).

The shutout was the third in a row suffered by the Generals, who have now gone scoreless for 30 innings and have also lost a season-high four in a row.

Waynesboro is on the road at Staunton on Monday
