Cambridge 5, Waterloo 2
A timely 3-run triple from freshman Owen Bernhardt helped the Blue Jays to a Capitol South victory over visiting Waterloo Thursday in Cambridge.
Bernhardt’s triple came with two outs in the fourth inning and put the Blue Jays up 5-1 after leading 2-1.
Bernhardt also recorded a double in the victory, finishing with four RBIs. Cambridge’s Jared Marty and Tucker Tesdal combined to pitch seven innings, striking out 14.
Cooper Setz finished with a run and a hit for the Pirates. Trevor Firari ended with a hit and RBI for Waterloo.
“Tough one tonight for us,” Waterloo baseball coach Dennis Klubertanz said. “We just didn’t play as crisp tonight as we did on Tuesday. Mainly. we really struggled at the plate tonight striking out 14 times. Our approaches at the plate were just not as good as they were on Tuesday. We let too many good pitches go by. We had a few times where we were up in the count 3-1 and we would allow the pitcher to come back and strike us out. Just not enough balls put into play tonight.”
Waterloo travels to Johnson Creek Saturday for a 10 a.m. game and host Wisconsin Heights at 5 p.m. on Tuesday.
