After a couple postponements, the Cambridge Christian baseball team opened the 2014 season at home April 15. The Warriors battled to lead the game at 4-3 before visiting Spectrum pulled away in the fifth for an 11-4 victory.

Spectrum used a couple of doubles to create a 2-0 lead in the top of the first. CCS got on the board in the bottom of the inning when Grant Taylor coaxed a two-out walk, moved up on a passed ball and scored on Matt Reinke’s flare to left field.

After starter Alex Moses pitched a scoreless third, the Warriors got manufactured runs from Jack Swenson, Taylor and Jake Bergman to lead by a run in the bottom of the inning. Spectrum tacked on a run on an errant pickoff throw in the fourth then broke it open with a six-run fifth. Nick Dufeck and Iain Thune threw in relief for CCS.

“It took a couple of innings to get our feet under us and then we played some decent ball,” said Warrior coach Jerry Moses. “We had a few eighth graders playing in their first varsity game. I thought (eighth-graders) Nick Dufeck at third and Weston Olson in center held their own in the opener.”
