Four games played… a shutout, a mercy rule… some other stuff.
- Purcellville 6, Woodstock 0: Agyei Quinichett and Tyler Muscar combined on a four-hit shutout, and the Cannon lineup rapped four doubles. Purcellville is 6-10; Woodstock falls to 9-6.
- Winchester 12, Front Royal 2 (7 Innings): The score was a rather unassuming 4-2 until Winchester went bonkers in the bottom of the seventh, scoring eight runs to “walk it off.” The last run scored on a Chase Nixon bases-loaded walk. Winchester is 8-9; Front Royal falls to 6-9.
- Harrisonburg 8, Covington 4: Down 4-3 in the sixth, the Turks got a base-loaded triple from Mitchell Farris, followed by RBI hits by Seaver King and Michael Rosario. The Turks are 10-6; Covington falls to 6-9.
- Charlottesville 8, Waynesboro 4: Charlottesville has now won six in a row, and nine of 11 to go to 9-5 and maintain a small lead in the South over Harrisonburg (by percentage points). In he sixth, C-ville got a big two-run single from Logan Amiss, which was followed by RBI hits by Hunter Teplanszky and Tristan Bissetta to take control of this one.
