Poly, which is ranked sixth in the division, padded its lead in the fifth inning when right fielder Joey Asperger reached on an error to lead off the frame, stole second base and scored on a two-out ground-rule double by Campbell, who started at third base, to make it 3-1.
"It was a toss-up game, we got a few lucky breaks to get our runs in," said Poly Coach Wayne Ellis, whose team tied the game at 1 in the bottom of the second inning on a run-scoring single up the middle by outfielder Zack Bern after Prep had taken its first lead in the top of the inning on a Steve Fleming RBI double. "Our starter did a real nice job, pitched real well and so did theirs. We kept them off-balance, but [Orndorff] was getting tired at the end."
Prep's comeback actually started in the top of the sixth when a two-out rally was enough to force Orndorff off the hill with runners on second and third following Fleming's second double of the day with third baseman Cole Rademacher on base. Campbell got the final out on two pitches, but wasn't as effective in the seventh.
