Wranglers defeat Staunton Braves 19-5/ 2ND VBL Team to clinch Post season spot!

Luray (24-10) continued its trend from the entire 2008 season of combining excellent starting pitching with some explosive offense. The Wranglers reached double figures for the 10TH time this season to turn back the visiting Staunton Braves by a final score of 19-5 in VBL action Thursday night at Bulldog Field.

Staunton...000...000...032... 5-11-2
Luray........025...020...46X... 19-19-1

Luray starter Drew Rucinski (Ohio State) pitched six strong innings of three hit baseball and left with a 9-0 lead. Rucinski walked two batters while striking out 10 during his outing and faced just 21 batters, only three over the six inning minimum. While the Buckeye's night ended after six innings his team was just getting started. Jeff Jefferson (Liberty) and Chris Rey (South Florida) hit Grand Slams in the 7TH and 8TH innings respectively.
Give credit to the Braves (19-17) for keeping at it despite trailing 13-0 heading into the top of the eighth inning. Staunton scratched out 5 runs over the final two frames against the Luray relievers. Luray now joins Waynesboro (24-11) as VBL teams that are assured of making the 2008 post season! Congrats Wranglers!
