WAYNESVILLE, Mo. (April 27, 2010) — High-quality pitching led to a low score Tuesday for both baseball teams Tuesday as Glendale defeated Waynesville 4 to 0.

The game was a top-notch pitching matchup with almost no batters succeeding in their efforts, and the score remained tied at zero until Waynesville gave up four runs in the fourth inning to make score 4 to 0.

That would be the final score.

Matt Hesteness gave up all of the four runs, but he still had a solid start. Relief pitcher David Faulkner gave up no runs in three innings. Unfortunately for Waynesville, their team had no offensive production to reinforce their pitching game, and Glendale gave up no runs to Waynesville.

Waynesville managed only once in the seventh inning to put people into scoring position. The bases were loaded with two outs when a strikeout ended the game, leading to another defeat for Waynesville with a close score.

In previous play, Waynesville was defeated by Joplin 4 to 2 last week Friday. Although there wasn’t a lot of scoring in the April 23 game, Patrick Holt, Kevin Jones, Romeo Flores, and Matt Cassel had hits. Flores was solid in pitching giving up four runs in four and one-third innings. James Holler gave up no runs in one and two-thirds innings.
