Waynesville trounced 22 to 4 in baseball blowout by Rock Bridge
WAYNESVILLE, Mo. (May 18, 2010) — Waynesville lost 22 to 4 in Monday evening district tournament play against Rock Bridge in Lebanon. The loss surprised few, considering that Rock Bridge is one of the best teams in the conference while Waynesville is one of the worst.

During the first three innings, Waynesville pitcher Patrick Holt gave up eight runs though several of those errors came from errors on defense allowing base runners and points. After Holt was removed from pitching the game grew worse, and 14 runs scored in the fourth inning turned the game into a massacre.

Post-season play is now over for Waynesville.

One of Waynesville’s promising players for next year is freshman Dillon Newcomb, who may join the varsity team giving varsity some fresh talent. Newcomb’s position is third base and he focuses on both hitting and defense, choosing to hit for average rather than for power. Newcomb sees himself as a run producer rather than run scorer with few errors.

Dillon’s well-rounded play with solid hitting and defensive play may give next year’s Waynesville Tigers some much-needed talent; several other JV members should also get to increase their time in varsity.
