Valley League Scoreboard, Nats-Phils Tonight, Astros Blast Orioles
In the Valley League last night, Woodstock out-slugged Front Royal 17-10, while New Market beat Strasburg 9-6. Harrisonburg and Staunton were also winners. Among the games tonight in the VBL, Strasburg travels to Winchester, Front Royal heads to New Market, and Purcellville entertains Woodstock.
The Washington Nationals start a quick 2-game set with the Philadelphia Phillies tonight. The Nats, winners of 7 of their last 8 games, start the evening 5 games behind the Mets in the NL East, and just 1 game back of the second-place Phils. Air time is 6:35 on Sports Radio 1450.
Off the field, the Nationals’ Kyle Schwarber was named NL Player Of The Week. For the week, Schwarber hit .385, with 6 home runs, including 5 in a 2-game span. It’s Schwarber’s first POW award.
The Baltimore Orioles managed just 2 hits in a 10-2 loss to Houston. The 2 teams play again tonight at 7:05 at Camden Yards.
And, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously yesterday that the NCAA can’t limit education-related benefits that colleges can offer athletes, saying that the current limits violate antitrust laws. The ruling could pave the way toward paying student-athletes.
