WALKERTON â€” The John Glenn baseball team found its return home to the Falcon Nest to its liking Wednesday.
Justin Gierlowski pitched a one-hit shutout in six innings of work, and Glenn batters scratched out runs in all but one inning as the Falcons celebrated their homecoming after 12 days on the road with a 10-0, six-inning diming of the visiting Triton Trojans in a Northern State Conference game in Walkerton.
