A near-perfect tag by Bruins’ shortstop Sterling Rose was marred by the fact he didn’t have the ball in his mitt. The ball appears just behind Rose.
In what started out as a calm and warm day under bright skies, last Saturday's doubleheader baseball day ended up a blustery and cooler day before the last pitch was thrown.
Cedaredge weathered a big mid-inning rally to win game one 15-8 and then overpowered their opponents in game two by an 18-11 score.
Bruins 15, Titans 8
The Bruins eased out to an 8-0 lead after three innings of play in game one only to have the visiting Coal Ridge Titans explode for six runs in the top of the fourth inning leaving the Bruins up by two, 8-6, heading into the bottom half of the inning. Cedaredge rebounded with a single run following a double from starting pitcher Drew Beach to plate Sterling Rose.

Cedaredge starting pitcher Drew Beach made a good tag on this Coal Ridge runner but did not have the ball when the play ended.
After that, Cedaredge had things go their way after scoring two runs in the bottom of the fifth and four times in the sixth. Coal Ridge managed single runs in each of the fifth and seventh innings to make the final score 15-8.
Beach picked up the win for Cedaredge with Trent Walker coming on in the latter stages of the third to get the save. Beach pitched 3.2 innings giving up five hits and six runs. Walker went 3.1 innings with three hits and two runs added to his stats.
Three players: Walker, Beach, and Rose all had perfect days at the plate. Walker and Beach had three hits and rose two to account for seven of the Bruins' runs. Aaron Henrie went three for four with Dillon Nichols and Greg Edgington getting one hit and two RBIs each.

Meanwhile, the Titans plated two runs in the second and four in the third to trail 17-6 going into the fourth frame.
