Pitcher of the Day

With pitch counts these days, it’s pretty rare to see a VBL pitcher throw a complete game, but that’s just what

Brett Sasse
Brett Sasse

happened last night: Waynesboro’s Brett Sasse, from Nebraska-Omaha, not only threw a complete game, but threw a shutout as well. Over the nine innings (and only 89 pitches!), Brett allowed 2 hits, didn’t walk a single batter, and struck out 6. He earned the win, of course, and had a game score of 89. Brett is 1-1, 2.10 in 30 innings this summer so far.

Others of Note

Harrison Richards, Charlottesville: 4 IP, 5 hits, 1 run, 0 earned, 1 BB, 3 K’s, win
Jason Seever, Aldie: 5 IP, 3 hits, 0 runs, 3 BB, 6 K’s, win (64)
Alex Lewandowski, Aldie: 4 IP, 0 hits, 0 runs, 2 BB, 7 K’s
Ryan Bennett, Woodstock: 7 IP, 0 hits, 4 runs, 0 earned, 2 BB, 6 K’s, loss (73). I don’t think I’ve ever seen a line score quite like this one. Ryan had a great game, but his defense let him down, committing 5 total errors.
Mario Morales, Front Royal: 3.2 IP, 1 hit, 0 runs, 1 BB, 2 K’s
Jared Dotac, Harrisonburg: 4 IP, 3 hits, 0 runs, 0 BB, 1 K
