Harrisonburg Turks SportsWatch – July 13, 2017


The Harrisonburg Turks (13-17) look to get back on track and avoid three straight losses tonight to host the Lumberjacks of Covington (9-20). The Turks have lost their past two games out of the All-Star break are 9.5 games back from first place in the South. Start time is 7:30pm at Veterans Memorial Park.

Probable starters for tonight’s game are Sean Fitzpatrick (0-0) for the Lumberjacks and Carter Bach (0-1) for the Turks. Both pitchers are going to be looking for their first wins of the season. Fitzpatrick is making his fifth appearance in the Valley League this season, one more than Bach’s fourth, but hasn’t pitched more than three innings in each of them.

Tonight’s game is Chick-fil-A Night! The first 100 fans into the ballpark will receive a sandwich compliments of Chick-fil-A!

The Turks will be traveling tomorrow, playing the Front Royal Cardinals (15-14). The Cardinals are .500 in their last 10 games and are just four games back from the first spot in the North. First pitch at Bing Crosby Stadium is scheduled for 7pm.

Strasburg @ Waynesboro – 7pm
Winchester @ Front Royal – 7pm
Staunton @ Purcellville – 7pm
Woodstock @ New Market – 7:30pm
