Harrisonburg, VA – The Turks struggles continue as they lose for the seventh time in their last 10 games. After a fast pace start to the game, Harrisonburg led 4-3 after the first, the Royals continued to tack on runs while the Turks struggled to score losing 10-6 to Winchester.

Harrisonburg fell behind 3-0 in the first, but were able to score four runs in the bottom half of the inning to take a 4-3 lead. The Turks first inning run production came from a RBI double by Bobby Brown (Arizona) and a two RBI single by Scott Dalrymple (Oklahoma City). Terrance Jackson (Oklahoma City) and Tyler Carpenter (UT-San Antonio) were both hit by pitches to load the bases, and Joe Huber (St. Joseph’s, In.) was walked to bring in the fourth Turks run. Winchester’s pitching staff then settled down and only allowed two more runs, a RBI double by Shaun Cooper (Pima C.C.) in the fourth and a RBI single by Connor Winn (Georgia Tech) in the sixth.

Zach Brewster (Georgia Tech) got the start for Harrisonburg and allowed six runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out three Winchester batters in five innings of work. The bullpen continued to have troubles for the Turks allowing four runs over the final four innings of the game.

Harrisonburg will host the Valley League All-Star game tonight, Sunday July 11th at 7:30 p.m. The festivities will kick off with the Home Run Derby at 5:30 p.m. and will be followed by the 60-yard dash competition at 6:00 p.m. The Turks next home game will be against Staunton on Tuesday July 13th at 7:30 p.m.
