MARSHFIELD — The Lebanon Yellowjackets baseball team continues to stay as hot as they defeated the Marshfield Blue Jays to win their third straight game on Tuesday, 5-0.
Lebanon (8-4 overall, 3-2 Ozark Conference) continued to play solid defense by posting no errors in Tuesday’s contest and finished the game with eight hits as well.
“The big thing is between the games that we struggle and play well is that our defense is solid and we are throwing strikes on the mound,” Lebanon head coach Dustin Young said. “That is one of the things during this little streak that we have had that we have been able to do.
“Our defense has been really solid and I have always had confidence in our offensive abilities as well. The things that we have struggled with early have been the defense and throwing strikes and we have started to put that together. Once we put those pieces together we are a solid ball club and it has shown the past couple of games.”
The ‘Jackets went with junior Keaton Winfrey on the mound in Tuesday’s contest and Winfrey was solid all the way through as he finished the game with a complete game shutout. Winfrey finished the game with only three hits allowed and struck out eight hitters as well.
