Two errors lead to four Parkview runs in the bottom of the sixth

SPRINGFIELD — After battling back from a 4-1 deficit and tying the game up in the fourth inning, the Waynesville baseball team committed two errors in the sixth and gave up four runs to Parkview in a 8-4 loss on Tuesday in Springfield.

It was tough to swallow for the team after playing clutch baseball in the fourth.

All three runs in the fourth were scored with two outs.

Pitching had settled down after giving up a run in the bottom of the first and three runs in the bottom of the third.

Sophomore Trey Simpson put up zeros in the fourth and fifth before coach Scott Turner handed the ball to reliever Ryan Pendleton, who was given the undeserved loss.

Waynesville was outhit by Parkview 12-8 and the Tigers had three errors to the Vikings two.

The Tigers will get a chance to redeem themselves when they make another trip to Springfield on Thursday to play Kickapoo.
