The Harrisonburg Turks (15-17) hit the road to face Waynesboro (18-14). The Generals currently sit second in the South division, right ahead of the Turks in third. First pitch at Kate Collins Field is scheduled for 7pm.

Matt Young (2-1) got his second decision of the season, working 5.0 innings and only allowing three hits and struck out eight. Zak Devermann (1-3) got the save as he worked one innings and didn’t allow any hits. Nickolas Ortega (0-2) got the loss, allowing two earned on six hits in 5.2 innings pitched.

Bryan Arias had another good performance at the plate, going 3-for-4 with a run scored. Zach Kuchmaner also had another performance with a RBI as a part of going 1-for-4 with his bat. Dylan Hardy was the only Cardinal to have multiple hits, going 2-for-4.
