WINFIELD, W.Va. -- When Riverside pitcher Cameron Norris winds, kicks and deals it doesn't matter which pitch he throws.
In other words, there isn't much difference in his wind, his kick or his deal.
The 6-foot-1 right-hander put together his best outing of the young season on Tuesday night with a 12-strikeout, one-walk performance in the Warriors' 6-3 victory over Winfield on a chilly night in Putnam County.
The smooth-delivering junior gave up eight hits and three earned runs after surrendering seven runs in 7 1/3 innings combined against St. Albans and East Chester, N.Y.
"He threw tonight like I expected him to throw every game," said Riverside Coach Chris Hawkins, who is in his third season with the Warriors. "He had really good command of his fastball, curveball and his changeup and was comfortable throwing them anywhere in the count.
"The thing about Cam is he doesn't care. He doesn't care what the score is, he does not care what the count is, he does not care who the batter is."
Winfield (4-5) was certainly impressed, after striking out four consecutive times from the end of the fifth inning to the end of the sixth.
"He used his fastball to set up his breaking ball and what he did is he got stronger as the game went on," Winfield Coach Will Isaacs said. "I think he had more life on the ball in the sixth inning than he had in any other inning on the night. He controlled the inside part of the plate, used his breaking ball ... he took it to us."
The Generals mustered two runs in the third on Norris' only walk of the game and seventh of the season in 14 1/3 innings. However, his sixth strikeout and the third of five to end an inning halted the rally.
