WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Connor Schultz drove in five runs as the Cedar Falls baseball team opened the 2016 season with an 8-1 win over Waterloo Columbus

The Tigers took control from the start, taking an early edge as Luke Loecher drove in a pair of first inning runs on a base hit in to left. Kane Fairman's bloop single later in the inning gave Cedar Falls a 3-0 lead.

Schultz later drove in a pair of runs on a sacrifice fly and a ground ball fielders' choice, but he struck the big blow in the 5th inning. With the bases loaded, the Tiger junior drove a bases clearing triple in the gap to put the game away.

Austin Marchesani picked up the win for Cedar Falls.
