CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Charlottesville Tom Sox caught fire early in the game and rode those runs to a 4-3 win over the Waynesboro Generals on Friday night. 

 

After surrendering one run in the top half of the first, the ‘Sox immediately bounced back with a three spot in the bottom half of the inning. Gehrig Ebel (Virginia Tech) led things off with a single, but it was Logan Amiss (VCU) who had the resounding knock in the inning. He delivered a two-out, two-run double which drove in Cal Stark (Weatherford) and Cole Foster (Auburn)Will Safford (LSU) came around to score in the bottom of the second to extend the lead to three. 

 

Chase Centala (Florida) settled in after giving up that first inning run, though, and finished the day with five innings and three strikeouts while only allowing one earned run. 

 

The rest of the pitching staff came on and had a serviceable day, however it was Angelo Cabral (North Central Texas) who once again stood out. The righty punched out two in two scoreless innings to keep his ERA at 0.00 on the year. 

 

Charlottesville avoided a bit of a scare in the late innings, as Waynesboro chipped away at the lead in the top of the eighth when Connor Cino led things off with a long home run to right off Noah Overton (UNC Wilmington). The big lefty calmed down after the rocky start and struck out two Generals before handing the ball over to Carter Spivey (East Carolina). 

 

Spivey danced around a threat from Waynesboro in the ninth thanks to a double play, which he started on a comebacker to the mound. He ended the contest with an emphatic strikeout to help propel the Tom Sox to a 4-3 win. 

 

Charlottesville moves to 15-7 on the season and will be back in action on Saturday as they travel to Purcellville for a doubleheader with the North Division foe. They return to Crutchfield Park Sunday for a Fourth of July contest with these same Waynesboro Generals. 

 

Additional Notes

  • Charlottesville did not score after the 2nd inning, and only had six baserunners reach in the final six frames.

  • The win snapped a 7-game losing streak to the Generals.

  • The Tom Sox stole multiple bases for the 17th time this season.

  • Charlottesville struck out less than 10 batters in back-to-back 9-inning games for the first time this season.
