Tyler Greene pitched four shutout innings allowing only one hit while striking out 11 batters to keep Nandua’s undefeated season rolling along in a 14-0 defeat of Arcadia last Thursday.

Greene was supported by a five-run first inning from his offense, highlighted by a lead-off home run from Luke Parks. Dylan Ross added an RBI single, and a Jacob Meilhammer brought in two with a check-swing double to deep field.

From there, Greene frustrated the Firebirds’ batters with both command and velocity. Parks, Ross, and Meilhammer all finished with two hits apiece, and Dylan Marshall had a hit, an RBI, and scored three runs for the Warriors.

Tyler Padgett had the lone hit for the Firebirds, a double, and Landon Fuller took the loss, pitching two innings, allowing five hits and five runs while striking out one.
