Lyndhurst1Bing, bang, boom, boom: That’s pretty much how the week went for Hillbilly baseball. After solid victories over West Orange, North 13th Street Tech, Cedar Grove and Lyndhurst, the Verona High School team now has a 7-2 record.

The winning week kicked off on Monday, when Collin Kiernan had his second consecutive 19 strikeout outing. Alex Hardenberg and Austin Masters had the hot bats in the 8-0 over West Orange, with each going 2-for-4. Zach Skrivanic contributed two RBI.Lyndhurst3

Tuesday and Wednesday were days of rest (and training) for VHS, and they paid off on Thursday when Kevin Kistner took the mound against North 13th Street Tech. Kistner allowed just one run in the four-hitter, but he wasn’t the only Kistner of note on the field: Twin brother Wade Kistner had a double and and RBI in the 4-1 win.

Verona travelled to Lyndhurst on Saturday and, playing in the shadow of the Medieval Times castle, laid siege to the Golden Bears. Kiernan struck out 13 in Verona’s 5-1 victory. The Verona bats were red hot again, with Masters delivering a triple and a run, while Metzger had a double, two runs and an RBI. Rounding out the Hillbilly hitting, Nick Zamloot had two RBI and a double.
