On April 7, the last time Centennial played Arbor View in baseball, the Bulldogs did everything right and everything wrong.
They got 13 hits, but none was timely. They scored runs in five separate innings but never more than one. They played sound defense but had a costly error in the 8-5 loss.
On Friday against the Aggies, Centennial did only right in an 18-8 win.
“When we came out of school today, our kids were dialed in,” said Centennial coach Charlie Cerrone, whose team is tied with Arbor View at 10-2 for first place in the Northwest Division. “They hit the ball where they should hit the ball. They just brought it.”

Against Centennial, Arnold surrendered eight runs, five earned, in three innings.
