Kyle Wallau pitched four scoreless innings for Mathews-Carlsen on Saturday but had to leave the game because he had pitched three innings on Wednesday and had reached his maximum number of innings for the week.
Wells Fargo scored two runs in the bottom of the fifth and two more in the sixth, getting some help from errors by Mathews-Carlsen.
