In Verona High School baseball, Luke Weiss and Matt Rubins were both 1-for-2 and Weiss also got an RBI, but it wasn’t enough to power Verona past Bloomfield on Monday. The game was played at home on Doc Goeltz Field, where the heavy gray skies seemed to hold the Hillbillies down on the mound and at bat. Collin Kiernan started the game for Verona, but turned things over to Mike Cifaretto after two innings with two runs against him. Cifaretto, a junior had three runs scored against him in three innings. Luke Connell finished the game. Bloomfield pitcher Andrew Gonzalez struck out seven Verona batters and and walked three.
