The Front Royal Cardinals welcomed the New Market Rebels to Bing Crosby Stadium Sunday night for some Valley League baseball action. It was the second night in a row that the two teams would square off.


The Cardinals got out to a 1-0 lead in the first inning after a Dallas Hite double that scored Drew Camp. The Cardinals also added a run in the second inning when Broedy Poppell scored on a wild pitch making it 2-0. Offensively for the Cardinals, six different guys recorded a hit in Sunday night’s action.


Head coach of the Cardinals, Clint Marsh, got a quality start from Kevin Warunek who went four innings giving up just two hits. He added four strikeouts and two walks to his line as well.


The Rebels were able to hold the Cardinals scoreless in the final seven frames while also adding three runs in the fifth inning and one in the seventh making it 4-2 which would ultimately be the final score.


The Cardinals return to the field June 6th as they travel to Woodstock to take on the River Bandits. They are back in Bing Crosby Stadium on Wednesday when they host the Winchester Royals at 7:00. We hope to see you there for a great night at the ballpark.
