CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Charlottesville Tom Sox (14-7) took down the Waynesboro Generals (8-16) 13-3 on Monday night, extending their winning streak to five games. The game was called in the middle of the sixth due to inclement weather. 

 

Charlottesville’s offense exploded for 11 runs on Sunday night, and it looked to continue its momentum against the Generals’ pitching staff. After a 1-2-3 inning by Darien Smith (Southeastern) to begin the ballgame, the ‘Sox offense kept up right where they left off. 

Facing Tyler Cirone, the Tom Sox wasted little time as Alex Bouche (Old Dominion) got the offensive onslaught started with an RBI single that scored Brice Martinez (Wofford). One batter later, Aidan Teel (Virginia) also tallied an RBI single, scoring Derek Williams (Florida Southwestern)

The hits kept coming for Charlottesville in the first as Connor Hincks (Notre Dame) lined a single into right field that drove in Bouche. Teel scoring on a throwing error by catcher Isaiah Mirabal and Hincks advanced to second on the play. Garrett Spikes (Georgia) had the big blow of the inning as he crushed a two-run double into the right-center field gap that scored Hincks and Kalvin Alexander (Georgia Southwestern)

Waynesboro cut into the six-run deficit in the second, scoring Parker Stroh after Julian Uejima bounced into a double play. However, the ‘Sox fired right back in the bottom half of the inning as Bouche roped an RBI double for his second hit and RBI of the contest. Martinez scored on the extra-base hit. 

 

Waynesboro found itself trailing 7-1 after two innings, but Braden Forchic smoked a double into deep center field, which scored Alex Miller. Cirone allowed the first two batters to reach in the third, prompting the Generals to go to their bullpen. 

Waynesboro called upon Jack Sullivan, but the move didn’t seem to pay off as Spikes notched an RBI single for his third RBI of the night. The ‘Sox tacked on another run in the third on a sacrifice fly from Williams. Leading 9-2, Charlottesville kept its foot on the gas, and Bouche singled for his third hit of the game, scoring Kyle Edwards (Old Dominion) and Martinez. Bouche drove in four runners in just three innings. 

Head coach Lyndon Coleman went to his bullpen in the fourth, bringing in Braden Halladay (High Point). Smith finished the game tossing three innings, allowing two runs and striking out four. 

The ‘Sox added to their advantage in the fourth when Alexander crushed his second long ball of the campaign, and it made the score 13-2. 

 

Waynesboro did get a run back in the fifth inning as Forchic tallied his second RBI double, bringing the score within 10. 

 

The Tom Sox loaded the bases in the sixth, but the game was called due to rain. The ‘Sox are off on Tuesday but return to CHO Airport Field to take on Covington, with the first pitch slated for 7:00 P.M.

 

Additional Notes

  • After hitting four home runs in their first 16 games, the ‘Sox have hit four in their last five contests.

  • Charlottesville picked up their fourth consecutive home win and are now over .500 at home on the season.

  • Charlottesville’s 13 runs at home are a season high. They have scored 10+ runs in back-to-back home games after failing to do so in their first nine.

  • Bouche has knocked in four runs in 2-straight contests after failing to record an RBI in his first nine games.
