Big Weekend for Former Hokies

News out of the Burg is slow this time of year so let's take time to catch up on some former Hokies.

Darryl Tapp

Tapp participated in the Bobby Engram Celebrity Softball Game Saturday in Tacoma. The game helped raise money for Engram's charity, which helps children with sickle cell anemia. Tapp was one of the heroes of the game, helping his team to victory.

Last year, Tapp had a career-high 55 tackles, including 5.5 sacks. 

Joe Saunders

Saunders was dominant against the San Diego Padres Saturday to earn his seventh win of the season. He went 8.1 inning and gave up one run on eight hits with a walk and five strikeouts in the Angels' 9-1 win

Saunders lowered his ERA to 3.66 and is now 7-4 this season. The only run he allowed Saturday came on a two-out home run in the sixth inning by the Crushin' Russian Kevin Kouzmanoff. The win got Saunders back on the right path after struggling in his last three starts. It was his first win since May 21. 

Angela Tincher

Tincher participated in the Team USA selection camp in Chula Vista, Calif., and also made her debut for the Akron Racers in the NPF. Tincher was one of over 40 players trying to make the USA national team and select team for competitions this summer.

She dazzled in her first game for Akron, throwing a one-hit shutout in a 1-0 win for the Racers. Tincher struck out four and walked four.
