The Cambridge Christian baseball club wrapped up its season with an impressive 12-2 victory in six innings over 1st Baptist-Rosemount May 26. The home win had the Warriors finish with a 10-5 mark this spring–a six-game improvement from 2010.
Alex Moses tossed the first four innings to earn the win, leaving the game with a 10-1 lead. Anthony Lecceardone finished off by pitching the final two stanzas. Jake Bergman led the offensive attack with a 3-for-4 day at the plate.
“It was a satisfying win–a real solid team effort to finish off the season” said Warrior Coach Jerry Moses.
More Warrior action
Catching up with more recent games, the Warriors swept a pair of games against Victory of Forest Lake 19-3 on May 19 and 21-2 May 24. In the first game, pitching duties were spread across Grant Taylor, Bill Enos, James McLean, Bergman and Alex Lecceardone. Peter Maring and Jack Swenson were able to get pitch one inning each in the second victory. Maring had a three-run inside-the-park homer to highlight the offense in Game 2.
On May 23, CCS was tipped 5-3 by the Math & Science Academy. Anthony Lecceardone pitched five innings, giving up 4 runs, with Moses throwing the final two innings. The big eluded the Warrior bats.
The May 21 one-day tournament at Christian Life was cancelled due to the weather.
• Since CCS’ Christian Athletic League does not host a season-ending baseball tournament as it does in other sports, Coach Moses said discussion has begun with teams from the MACS about forming a Christian school baseball conference for next season which could include a league tourney.
