It is hard to win games when you are not scoring runs as the Glenwood City baseball team is discovering.
The Hilltoppers were shut out in all three of their conference games last week.
Glenwood City lost twice to Mondovi, 10-0 and 5-0, and were also beaten 10-0 by conference leader Elk Mound.
The losses to Mondovi were part of a doubleheader that was supposed to be played last Monday, May 9 in Glenwood City. Teams were unable to finish game one before severe weather sent players, coaches and spectators scrambling for cover. The games were finished this past Saturday, May 14 in Mondovi.
Glenwood City and startingpitcher Steven Booth had a good start at Elk Mound last Thursday, May 12. It was a scoreless game through the first two inning but Elk Mound’s offense finally woke up and produced runs in the third, fourth and fifth frames for the 10-0 win.
Glenwood City is 1-11 as it heads into the final week of regular season action. The Toppers played a doubleheader in Spring Valley this past Monday, May 16 and will finish out their schedule on the home field with games against rival Boyceville this Friday and Elmwood/Plum City next Monday, May 23.
Mondovi – Game 1
Mondovi put runs on the board in all five innings of a 10-0 victory that spanned two different days – Monday and Saturday.
The Buffaloes finished with 11 hits against the Hilltoppers in the doubleheader opener and took advantage of a half dozen Glenwood City errors.
Mondovi pitcher Austin Remington did not allow a hit in the contest.
The only base runners Glenwood City mustered were via three walks.
Senior Brady McCarthy started on the mound, went three innings and suffered the loss. Max Janson threw the final two innings.
Mondovi – Game 2
The Hilltoppers played better in last Saturday’s second game in Mondovi.
It was scoreless until the third inning when Mondovi plated a pair of runs. The Buffaloes tacked on three more in the fourth to win 5-0.
Hurler Austin Remington kept the Toppers batters in check once again as he allowed just one hit, a double by Steven Booth.
Just four batters reached base for the Hilltoppers, three on walks.
Blake Fayerweather pitched for Glenwood City.
Elk Mound pitcher Joseph Javanovich struck out five Hilltoppers and allowed just two hits over five innings to led the Mounders to a 10-0 whitewashing in last Thursday’s conference game in Elk Mound.
Again, Glenwood City kept the game scoreless through the first couple of frames but Elk Mound eventually began to pick up hits. A trio of errors didn’t help the Toppers’ cause.
Elk Mound scored three runs each in the third and fourth innings and added four in the fifth to bring the game to an end.
Noah Brite and Steven Booth had the two Glenwood City hits. Elk Mound finished with nine.
Steven Booth started on the mound for Glenwood City and threw a nice game according to head coach Dean Fayerweather but had to leave after four and a third when his pitch count reached 98.
Booth surrendered eight hits and all ten runs to suffer the loss. He struck out a pair and waked five. Blake Fayerweather come on in relief and allowed just one hit.
