CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Charlottesville Tom Sox’s (18-14) cold streak continued against the Woodstock River Bandits (20-14) in the first game of a doubleheader Saturday, losing 1-0. 

 

The first two innings of the game were quiet as neither team recorded hits. Woodstock’s Max Galvin broke it open in the third with a single to score Renzo Gonzalez.

 

The next four innings of the game remained fairly quiet with no response from the Tom Sox. They were able to load the bases in the sixth, but a flyout from pinch hitter Garrett Spikes (Georgia) stranded all three.

 

Tom Sox pitching did their job, surrendering only one run and striking out five. The offense was not able to hold up their end of the deal, however, scoring no runs for the second-straight game.

 

Game two was played into the second inning before the game was stopped due to lightning.

 

 The ‘Sox are back in action Monday in Harrisonburg against the Turks. First pitch is scheduled for 7:30 P.M.

 

Additional Notes

  • Cole Wagner (Georgia) extended his on-base streak to 23 games with a walk in the sixth, tied for the 4th-longest streak all-time.

  • The Tom Sox were 0-for-14 with runners on base and 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position.

  • The ‘Sox have been shut out in back-to-back games for the second time this season. They had never been shut out in back-to-back games entering the year.
