I'm back in the land of the internets, so I'll be an abbreviated version of the last three days to get caught up:
Hitter of the Day: Grant Fillipitch, Waynesboro, from Butler. Grant had, according to himself, one of the best games of his life, going 5-5, with 2 runs, 6 RBI, 3 doubles, a triple, and a home run. This is even better than hitting for the cycle- he had 13 total bases!
Pitcher of the Day: This night caused our first double honor of the year. Drew Granier, Harrisonburg, from Louisiana-Monroe, shut down Covington over 9 innings, allowing 2 hits, 1 run (earned), 2 walks, and striking out 8. His game score was 85. The other tremendous game was spun by Ryan Yerina, Rockbridge, from Southern Connecticut State. Ryan threw a complete game shutout against Haymarket, allowing 4 hits, 1 walk, and striking out 6. His game score was 84. (A game score over 80 is amazing, so both guys needed to be recognized!)
Hitter of the Day: Scott Dalrymple, Harrisonburg, from Oklahoma City. Scott went 2-3 against Woodstock, with a run, 2 RBI, 2 walks, and a home run.
Pitcher of the Day: Greg VanSickler, Front Royal, from Shenandoah. Greg threw 7 shutout innings against Rockbridge, allowing 4 hits, 0 walks, and striking out 8 to win his first game of the year.
Hitter of the Day: Sanchez Gartman, Rockbridge, from Newberry. Sanchez went 2-5, with a run, 5 RBI, double, and home run against Covington. Sanchez is a returner to the Valley League this year, except that he played for the New Market Rebels last year.
Pitcher of the Day: Terrence Jackson, Harrisonburg, from Oklahoma City. Terrence threw five shutout innings in relief against Winchester, allowing only 1 hit, 2 walks, and striking out 9. His game score was 70.
