More losses for Waynesville baseball, defeated 12-15 by West Plains
WAYNESVILLE, Mo. (April 30, 2010) — The Waynesville varsity baseball team continued its losing streak Thursday with a 12 to 15 defeat by the West Plains Zizzers.

The game didn’t start that way. In a team effort in the third inning, David Faulkner hit a three-run homer and by the inning’s end, the score was 8 to 2 with Waynesville in the lead. However, the West Plains Zizzers zoomed past Waynesville, scoring seven runs in the fourth inning to make the score 11 to 8.

Scoring remained at a steady pace for the fifth, sixth, and seventh innings, leading to a final score of 12 to 15.

David Faulkner was the best hitter but Patrick Holt was efficient as the starter through three innings, but the fourth inning saw Holt struggle and relievers also struggled, giving up seven runs.

The fourth inning was chaotic, according to Holt, with Waynesville’s outfield and overall defense struggling and causing a lot of runs.

“I pitched all right but not my best,” Holt said.

Losing the game after leading 8 to 2 was “horrible,” he said.

“I consider myself one of the team’s better hitters,” Holt said. “I like being starter, but wish the team would do better overall. It’s good to be closer (than the) last five games, but I would like to win.”
