Baseball: Blue Streaks bounce back against Terriers

Sophomore outfielder Matthew Cummings went 2-for-4 with a triple and junior catcher Christian Stagaard had a pair of hits to lead Warren Hills in a 5-3 win over Delaware Valley in a Skyland Conference Raritan Division clash on Thursday at Baka Field in Alexandria Township.

Warren Hills (4-2, 3-1 division), which snapped a two-game skid, including an 8-4 division loss to Ridge on Tuesday, jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the first with four consecutive hits, including two doubles. Winning pitcher Anthony Veneziano struck out eight to improve to 2-0.

Delaware Valley (2-2, 2-2), amazingly, left the bases loaded in the final five innings. Losing pitcher Chris Fiaschetti struck out three and is 0-2. He went 2-for-2 with an RBI at the plate. Junior outfielder Frank McHugh was 2-for-4 and senior Nick Perna was 3-for-5 with an RBI triple.
