Generals beat Sox, clinch South Division

WAYNESBORO, Va. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- Four Waynesboro pitchers held the Tom Sox to just two hits in a 10-4 win Tuesday night that clinched the South Division title for the Generals.

Waynesboro put up three runs apiece in the first and third innings, then blew the game open with a four-run seventh inning that was highlighted by a long three-run home run into the left field trees by Wes Clarke. The Generals finished the night with 10 hits as a team.

The Tom Sox erased that early 3-0 deficit with three runs in the top of the second inning. Austin Mueller had the only hit of the inning for the Sox, an RBI double that got Charlottesville on the board. Charlottesville's other runs came on a bases-loaded walk by Paul Giocomazzi and a sacrifice fly from Cayman Richardson.

Charlottesville's Thomas Francisco finished the night 0-for-4 at the plate, ending his Tom Sox-record hitting streak at 23 straight.

Matthew Dillard (0-1) took the loss for the Sox after giving up six runs (five earned) on seven hits in three innings of work. Ryan Andrzejczyk (1-0) got the win for Waynesboro with five innings of no-run, one-hit baseball out of the bullpen. Andrzejczyk struck out six and walked a pair.

The Tom Sox have two games left on their regular season schedule -- at Covington on Wednesday night, then at Harrisonburg on Thursday. The Sox will be the No. 2 seed when the four-team South Division playoffs open this weekend.
