Waynesville baseball season ends Friday with 7 to 6 loss to Licking
LICKING, Mo. (May 14, 2010) — Waynesville baseball pitcher Patrick Holt was the star player in today’s away game in Licking, despite ending the baseball season with a 7 to 6 loss.

Holt is the regular starting pitcher for Waynesville but wasn’t supposed to pitch Friday due to illness. However, after Waynesville’s terrible pitching in the first four innings in which Waynesville gave up seven runs to Licking, Holt nearly recovered the game for Waynesville and gave up no hits in the final three innings of the game.

Holt had some offensive production with a double and walk. All seven of Licking’s runs came in the first four innings prior to Holt being called up to pitch, mostly from their three home runs, two of them off James Holler.

The Waynesville Tigers’ offense was spread through the game, with two runs in the first, three in the sixth, and one in the seventh inning, giving Waynesville six runs in total.

Holt regretted not being able to pitch throughout the game.

“If I pitched the first four the same as last three we may have won,” Holt said.

Waynesville ended the season with only two wins, but Holt said he hopes for a better season next year.

“We have a talented JV and freshman players, and several of these players will play for varsity next year revitalizing our team,” Holt said.
