Garrett splits twinbill

SALUDA, Va. — Tyler Lawrence struck out eight in a shutout performance on the mound to lead Garrett to a 1-0 victory in the first outing, but Rappahannock turned the tables on the Lakers in the second game by getting a 3-0 shutout if its own in a split of a doubleheader played Friday afternoon.

The Lakers scored in the top of the sixth inning when Luis Rios singled, stole second and scored on a double by Corey Helbig to take the first game 1-0.

Lawrence allowed five hits and retired nine of the last 10 batters he faced.

Rappahannock did all of its damage during the fifth inning of the second game. Tony Sandifer, who struck out seven in a three-hit shutout, had a run-scoring single as part of the fifth. Mike Owens added two singles.

Garrett got a double from Michael Drake.

The Lakers (3-6) begin play at Myrtle Beach, S.C., today at 6 p.m. when they face Monroe (N.Y.).
