Waynesboro Generals sweep Rockbridge, clinch #1 seed
The wins – 4-2 in game one and 15-1 in game two – pushed Waynesboro to a share of the league’s best record overall with Winchester.

Josh Bullock nailed down the win in the bottom of the seventh to record his eighth save of the season. Kyle Allen (3-2) picked up the win in relief.

Waynesboro put the game away in the late innings with a two-run triple by Brandon Glazer and a three-run double by Tyrone Smith.
