WAYNESBORO, Va. — The Charlottesville Tom Sox (12-4) saw their six-game win streak snapped on the road at Kate Collins field against the Waynesboro Generals (8-9) on Thursday night, falling by a score of 10-6.

Waynesboro came in with offensive firepower and showed it early, vaulting out to an early 1-0 lead on a pair of singles in the bottom of the first. They quickly added to it in the bottom of the second, tallying two more runs on two singles, a walk, and an error.

Nick Sulpizio (Old Dominion)’s start concluded after two innings. The righty allowed two earned runs on four hits and a walk while striking out one.

Both sides went scoreless in the third, but in the top of the fourth the speedy Hokie Ethan Gibson (Virginia Tech) singled, stole a base, and scored. He was driven home on an RBI single by Colby Wallace (East Carolina) as the ‘Sox cut into the deficit, trailing 3-1 after four frames.

In the top of the fifth, C’Ville tied things up with some small ball. Johnnie Lopez (Seminole State) singled and came around to score on an RBI single by Cale Stricklin (Auburn) before Sam Mummau (Florida) was hit by a pitch and later brought home by Dean Mihos (Coastal Carolina).

Brett Gastman (Charleston Southern) came on in relief of Sulpizio and was effective through his first two innings of work, but Waynesboro exploded offensively in the bottom of the fifth. The Generals posted six runs on four hits in the frame, punctuated by a three-run home run from Kishon Frett. The big inning from the Generals put them up 9-3 at the end of five as Gastman’s outing concluded after allowing five runs on three hits while recording one strikeout.

In the bottom of the sixth, the Generals added one more when Cesar Morillo scored, giving them a 10-3 lead that they’d preserve until the top of the eighth.

In the eighth, Robbie Lavey (George Washington), who made his return to the ‘Sox lineup on Thursday, worked a walk as the ‘Sox looked to get a late-inning rally going. Ryan Wynn (Wofford) would come in to pinch-run for Lavey and scored on a single by Lopez and an errant throw from right field. Lopez would come around to score as well on a passed ball, cutting into the Generals’ lead to make it 10-5 heading into the bottom of the eighth.

Will Banks (Davidson) pitched two innings and allowed one earned run before handing it off to Landon Abrahamson (Patrick & Henry) who struck out three and didn’t allow a run in two innings of work.

The Tom Sox added one more in the top of the ninth with two outs as Jake Books (Coastal Carolina) doubled and scored on an RBI ground-rule double from Wynn. But C’Ville’s comeback was stopped in its tracks after that as the visitors fell 10-6.


UP NEXT:

The Tom Sox are back home on Friday for Festivus Night where they’ll take on the Harrisonburg Turks. First pitch is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Charlottesville High School.

ADDITIONAL NOTES:

  • Three of Charlottesville’s four losses have come on the road.
  • Cale Stricklin reached base in all five of his plate appearances, going 3-for-3 with a walk and reaching on an error.
  • Charlottesville committed three or more errors for the seventh time this season.
