WAYNESBORO, Va. – The Charlottesville Tom Sox traveled to Waynesboro Tuesday night, finishing with a losing score of 9-0. The Generals dominated from start to finish, led by a one-hit, six-inning shutout by Seth Logue. The ‘Sox were unable to create any momentum in the game, only recording 3 singles and a walk. With the loss, Charlottesville moves to 24-9 on the season, but they still have firm control on first place in the South Division of the Valley Baseball League.   

 

Charlottesville’s own Jacob Haney (William & Mary) got the start for the ‘Sox, but he quickly ran into disaster. A pair of singles from Alonzo Rubalcaba and Jackson Ross set the Generals up for a big inning. Alejandro Figueredo and Brandon Pimentel drove in Rubalcaba and Ross respectively to make it 2-0 Waynesboro. Haney hit Waynesboro’s Kyle Murphy to load the bases, and his last contribution in the game was a walk, making the score 3-0. James Vaughn (Duke) came in for relief with 2 outs in the first, but was unable to keep the Generals’ runners from scoring. A walk, followed by a Will Prater hit doubled the lead to 6-0. For the rest of his 2.1 innings, Vaughn pitched a hitless shutout, giving Charlottesville an opportunity to get back in the game. 

 

Stephen Restuccio (Northwest Florida State) came in for Vaughn in the fifth, giving up a run on a passed ball. In the sixth, Clayton Gilmore (NC Wesleyan) gave up a solo home run to Waynesboro’s Rubalcaba as well as an RBI single to Figueredo. 

 

Offensively, the ‘Sox were unable to record a baserunner for the first five innings. In the sixth, Charlottesville newcomer Brayland Skinner (Mississippi State) broke up Logue’s perfect game with a single to right field. Logue’s one-hit performance set the Generals’ up for a stress-free finish as Elijah McCormick pitched a scoreless final three frames. Adam Cecere (Wake Forest) and Garrett Spikes (Georgia) both singled with two outs in the seventh, but the ‘Sox baserunners were left stranded after a lineout from Pierce Bennett (Wake Forest).

 

Ethan Martinez (USC Lancaster) and Andrew Ward (VCU) were the final relievers on the night for the Tom Sox. Martinez got out of the seventh inning thanks to a double play, and Ward kept Waynesboro hitless in the eighth.

 

The ‘Sox are back in action Thursday night in Staunton at 7:30 before returning home Friday to face the Turks. Admission to home games is free this season thanks to our friends at Carter Bank & Trust.

  • Waynesboro evened the all-time series at 20 apiece with their win tonight.
