In a rematch of a game that Cambridge won on Northview's home field to kick off region play, the visiting Titans returned the favor with a 5-2 victory on Cambridge's turf on Monday, March 27th. Both sides played well, but the Titans offense was just a bit more potent on this night.
Hayden Onorato started on the hill for the Bears and pitched well. He did get off to a bit of a rocky start in the first, allowing a couple of singles and a walk to load the bases. Another single drove in a couple of runs, but a strikeout and a pickoff on the bases ended the rally with a 2-0 lead for Northview. Cambridge answered with a run of its own in the bottom of the first. Michael Kolesar led off with a double to right and moved to third on a fly ball to deep center. Bradley Wiedman lined a double down the line to drive in Kolesar and move the score to 2-1.
Onorato cruised through the second, third and fourth innings. He ran into a little trouble in the fifth allowing a run on a couple of singles and a sacrifice fly. Blake Renner entered the game in the sixth and allowed a run to push the score to 4-1. Cambridge added a run in the bottom of the sixth as Jake Swiacki singled then eventually scored on a Wiedman single.
Northview added an insurance run in the seventh on a bases loaded walk, and the Bears offense went down in order in the bottom of the inning to end the game at 5-2.
Onorato took the loss, going five innings and allowing three runs on four hits with six strikeouts. Bradley Wiedman led the offense with a pair of hits and both RBIs, including a double. Kolesar, Swiacki and Teddy Egan had the other Cambridge hits, Kolesar's hit being a double.
Cambridge continues region play with a game at Johns Creek Wednesday evening the 29th. Game time is 5:55 PM.
