Written by: GeneralsSignGuyMike (Michael Kerr)
Here is the recap of the game from Bing Crosby Stadium between the Waynesboro Generals and Front Royal Cardinals. The Generals defeat the Cardinals 7-2 after coming off a loss to Woodstock last night and now they have won 6 out of their last 7, the Cardinals now have lost 8 of their last 9.
Waynesboro got off to a hot start after Brandon Sizemore and Evan Webb got back to back doubles in the 1st. In the 2nd inning after Austin Morgan lead off with a double, Derek Hamblen and Greg Meleski walked and then Brandon Sizemore once again got a hit bringing in 2 with a 2 RBI single. Front Royal starter Thomas Gray did pitch well after that until the 6th when Gray gave up a hit to Morgan and then Derek Hamblen had a RBI double. In the 7th Evan Webb had a solo HR and in the 8th Hamblen had another RBI double and then Morgan scored after a wild pitch was thrown by the Cardinals relief pitcher, sorry I have no name of the player but he is the tallest pitcher the Cardinals have.
Andy Altemus was the winning pitcher going 6 2/3 innings giving up 1 ER, 10 H, 4K, 0 BB. Chris Enourato came in after that and pitched 2 1/3 innings giving up only 1 hit and striking out 3. Altemus is now (4-0).
Sunday will be a big day with both division leaders going face to face at Kate Collins Field as the Generals (15-7) will face a red hot Luray Wranglers (17-6) who have won 9 straight. Waynesboro has defeated Luray in the 2 meetings this year 3-0, and 10-3. This is the 3rd of 4 matchups with the next one coming up on July 15th.
