STAUNTON, Va. – The Staunton Braves defeated the Charlottesville Tom Sox 7-3 on Monday in Staunton. This was the first time in the last seven games the Tom Sox were defeated by the Braves. 


Christian Worley (Virginia Tech) started on the mound for Charlottesville, throwing 43 strikes for a total of 68 pitches and a 2.25 ERA. On the offensive side, the first sign of action did not come until the fourth inning when Cole Foster (Auburn) hit a double for Charlottesville. Right after, Jonah Seagears (Virginia Tech) got on first base due to an error by Staunton shortstop Kent Rooklin. Trevor Candelaria (Davidson) managed to hit a double, bringing Foster home to put Charlottesville up 1-0.


Wyatt Langford (Florida) continued the hitting streak for Charlottesville in the fourth inning, hitting a double to bring in two Tom Sox and making the score 3-0.


The Braves responded right away in the bottom of the fourth when Brandon Cook hit a double and brought in a runner, getting the Braves on the board 3-1. Joseph Holiga stole a base for the Braves, followed by a Charlottesville error to bring in two runs for Staunton.


To start off the fifth inning, Preston Allen (Coastal Bend) came into pitch for Charlottesville but gave up a two-run home run to Staunton’s Joseph Delossantos which put the Braves up 5-3.


Carter Spivey (East Carolina) came on the mound to pitch for Charlottesville in the next frame, but the Braves struck again and answered fast as Holiga hit a home run to make the score 6-3. 


Kameron Guidry (Georgia) started off the seventh inning with a single, but Charlottesville could not bring him in. In the bottom of the inning, Justin Hanvey hit a ball right along the foul line for a triple for the Braves, then made it home due to a passed ball to put Staunton up 7-3. 


In the eighth, the Tom Sox tried for late runs as Foster was walked and Seagears hit a single, but Charlottesville could not answer.


To finish off the game, Garrett Spikes (Georgia) hit a single and his Georgia teammate Guidry was hit by Staunton pitcher Josh Emerson. Once again, however, Charlottesville could not bring in the batters.    


Charlottesville is now 10-5 on the season, and will be back in action on Tuesday as they face the Covington Lumberjacks at 7 p.m.
