Big innings carried the day for California Academy of Baseball in its 14-8, 8-4 doubleheader sweep of Hard 90 Tuesday at El Dorado High.

CAB scored 82 percent of its runs in three of the 12 innings it batted. Next up for the Placerville-based team are a series of weekend games in Reno.

Matt Smith’s solo home run to lead off the fifth inning of Tuesday’s opener tied the score 6-6 and started an inning that produced seven runs and a 12-6 lead — highlighted by Aaron Farney’s two-run single, Louis Merlo’s bases loaded walk, Ryan Rodriguez’ sacrifice fly and three Hard 90 errors sprinkled in.

Hard 90 starter Ryan Kane left his pitches up in the first inning and CAB took advantage, scoring five times as Smith stroked a two-run double, Garrett Scalero was hit with the bases loaded and Farney singled in two others.

Zach Terry had retired the first six batters he faced before Dylan Speer singled to open the third. Hard 90 eventually got two runs back on a Blair Lewis double into the right field corner.

As Josh Winkler provided the visitors with long relief, Hard 90 took the lead with a four-run fifth that featured five hits, including Kane’s RBI double and Lewis’ RBI single. Two runs scored on a CAB throwing error.

After CAB went up six, Winkler singled in a run in the sixth. Michael Webster’s RBI groundout and Zach  Culp’s RBI single put CAB up 14-8 and Lewis closed the scoring by doubling and scoring on a wild pitch.

In the second game, Cab trailed 4-2 before scoring six runs in the fifth. Offensively, Smith and Webster were each 2-for-4 with a double while pitching-wise, Logan Quick started and was followed by Rodriguez and Krischton Kern.
