VANDAILIA – The Greenville Lady Wave run ruled the Vandalia-Butler Lady Aviators 13-0 in a Friday night MVL matchup on the Aviators home diamond.
Great day for the program and the kids,” said Greenville coach, Jerrod Newland. “Now 10-0 and always nice to get a road league win.”
Grace Shaffer and Kylie Hamm combined for the shutout with Shaffer picking up the win allowing no runs, one hit, one walk while striking out two over three innings to earn the win. Hamm allowed two hits, no walks and no runs over the final two innings in relief.

Greenville scored six runs in the third inning led by singles from Bri Fellers and Savannah Leach, a Susie Blocher home run and a double off the bat of Baughn.
“Game was delayed an hour and we rolled – 10-1 on the year,” Newland noted. “Grace threw three innings and Hamm finished the final two.”
The Lady Wave banged out 16 hits on the day with Baughn Blocher, Leach, Kenna Jenkinson and B. Fellers each collecting two hits. Baughn had three hits in the win.
