CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — The sweltering heat did not keep fans away from the festivities of the first-ever Tom Stock Night at Charlottesville High School as the Tom Sox (11-3) hosted the Covington Lumberjacks (5-9). A packed house and three-hit evenings by Ryan Wynn (Wofford) and Tommy Roldan (Virginia) fueled the home team to an 11-2 win, its fifth-straight and 11th of the season overall.  

C’Ville wasted no time jumping out to an early lead in the first with five walks, one hit, and two fielder choices. All nine batters in the Tom Sox lineup saw the plate in the opening frame and contributed to the early 4-0 lead.

Hutson Trobaugh (Old Dominion) let up his first and only run of the evening after Covington’s Kaleb Henry drove a ball deep over the center field wall in the top of the second. The righty ended his night with two strikeouts while surrendering just two hits and one earned run in three innings of work.

The bottom of the second saw another offensive landslide from the home team after Wynn hit the ball to the opposite side of the field to put runners on the corners. A wild pitch sent Ethan Gibson (Virginia Tech) home before Roldan sliced an RBI single into right field. Moments later, Roldan scored off an error by the infield to make it 7-1.

“I’m feeling good, loose at the plate,” Wynn said after the game. “I’ve just been trying to focus on not thinking too much at the plate and sticking to my approach as much as I can.”

As the sun finally set on Willie T. Barnett Baseball Field, bringing the temperature down, Trobaugh and Jared Henchek heated up on the mound. Each pitcher held their opponents to no runs and one hit in the third frame.

The fourth saw another set of zeros, this time, with Chase Stryker (Coastal Carolina) coming in for the Tom Sox. Stryker came in and put two runners on but got out of the jam with two flyouts and a strikeout.

“Very well played game all around,” Head Coach Randy Tomlin said. “Great defense that kept up the entire game.” 

Back at the plate, the Lumberjacks cashed in their second run on a sacrifice fly to left field from Spencer Williams. Stryker rebounded by sending the next four batters away before Ryan Grzesiak (Florida Southwestern) came in for relief. 

Up 7-2, the Tom Sox added an insurance run in the seventh inning. Colby Wallace (ECU) singled into shallow right field, advancing to third off a Roldan hit then to home when David Wiley (Wofford) drove the ball into the outfield.

The bats weren’t done for C’Ville just yet as Roldan got back to the plate for the fifth time in the ninth. In a 2-2 count with two runners on, the rising sophomore launched a rocket out of the park for his first homer with the Tom Sox. 

“It feels like I’ve been waiting on that swing,” Roldan said. “I’ve been trying to see that ball deep and I put a good swing on it.”


UP NEXT:

The Tom Sox improved to 11-3 on Tuesday, maintaining their lead in the South Division, and will hit the road to Culpeper County High School to face the Cavaliers at 7 p.m. on Wednesday.


ADDITIONAL NOTES:

  • Ryan Wynn and Tommy Roldan combined for six hits on the night.
  • Roldan’s five RBI are tied for the second-most by a ‘Sox player in team history. He’s the first ‘Sox player with five RBI since Kyle Edwards had six on June 17, 2023.
  • The Tom Sox walked only one batter on the night.
  • Charlottesville scored a first-inning run for the fourth-straight game. They have scored in the first inning in all but four games this season.
