CAM­BRIDGE — Se­nior Paige Bleyer be­came the North Bay­side’s first 10-game win­ner this sea­son, toss­ing a one-hit­ter with 11 strike­outs and one walk, as the Vik­ings rolled in five in­nings.

Re­gan Jones went 2 for 3 with an RBI for the Vik­ings, and Mad­die Led­num (2 for 3) scored twice and knocked in a run. Karli Lewis added a dou­ble.

The Cam­bridge-South Dorch­ester base­ball team fell 7-2 to Kent Is­land Wedne­day.

CAM­BRIDGE — A five-run top of the fifth in­ning broke a 2-2 tie Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon, car­ry­ing Kent Is­land High’s base­ball team to a 7-2 win against Cam­bridgeSouth Dorch­ester.

The Buc­ca­neers are now 4-11 over­all, 3-3 North Bay­side; C-SD dipped to 5-10, 2-5.

“We just keep putting our­selves in bad sit­u­a­tions at the plate,” C-SD coach Chad Wolfe said. “We struck out 11 times to­day; we need to do a bet­ter job hit­ting with a two-strike count.”

Jake Hipps walked to start the top of the sec­ond, and scored on a throw­ing er­ror at third when he moved there later in the in­ning on a passed ball, mak­ing it 1-0.

The Buc­ca­neers added a run in the top of the fourth against C-SD starter Matt El­liott. Hipps led off again, this time with a base hit, his team’s first of the game. Three bat­ters later Sean Reid drove him home with a base hit to left field.

The Vik­ings replied in the bot­tom of the fourth, ty­ing the game. Nathaniel Lowe led off with a dou­ble, and El­liott beat out an in­field sin­gle to short. Bran­don Tibbs fol­lowed with a base hit to score Lowe, mak­ing it 2-1 and chas­ing Kent Is­land starter Tyler Loh.

Two bat­ters later, pinch­hit­ter Devin Sparks hit into a fielder’s choice that scored El­liott to make it 2-2. But the Vik­ings could do no more dam­age against re­liever Ian Schools.

Kent Is­land took ad­van­tage of three C-SD er­rors, and three walks, scor­ing five runs in the top of the fifth on just one hit, a Kyle Son­n­eveldt base-knock to left that brought in the fi­nal run.

From there, Schools pounded the zone to pick up the win in re­lief; he struck out six in four in­nings of work.

“It’s not how you start, it’s how you fin­ish,” Kent Is­land coach Tony Lewis said. “And we fin­ished well.

“We didn’t have a great start to the sea­son af­ter win­ning open­ing day (17-2 at Wi­comico),” Lewis added, “But this is the right time for us to get hot, and play some good base­ball.

“We’re re­ally young; we’ve got a ju­nior at first, and a sopho­more at third, sopho­more at sec­ond, sopho­more at short­stop. Our start­ing pitcher was a ju­nior, and Ian who fin­ished, he’s only a fresh­man,” Lewis said. “The fu­ture’s look­ing good for us.”

C-SD had six hits in the game; Michael Richard­son tripled, while Evan Fish­paw and Koby Schreiber each had sin­gles. Soft­ball Cam­bridge-SD 10
