Thomaston — The Oceanside and Medomak Valley baseball teams swung into the regular season on Wednesday, April 19 and the rival Midcoast high school squads battled each other — as well as the elements on a bitterly cold, blustery day on the diamond.

Ultimately, it was the hosts who found their way into the scoring column first and the Mariners held off the Panthers en route to a 7-4 victory.

The Mariners plated a run in the first inning and two in the second, fourth and fifth frames, while the Panthers tallied two in the fifth and seventh innings.

Leading the Oceanside offense were Tim Mazzeo (single, run, stolen base), Michael Dougherty (2 doubles, 2 RBIs, run), Titus Kaewthong (single, stolen base), Jack Freeman (2 singles, RBI), Logan Sheridan (double, run), Coby Dorr (single, run, stolen base), Hunter Davis (single, 2 runs, RBI, stolen base) and Connor Harvey (single, run, RBI).

For Medomak Valley, Brent Stewart (single), Cameron Robinson (single, run), Adam Eutsler (single, 2 runs) and Pat White (run) paced the offense.

Sheridan and Uriah Thongsophone toed the rubber on the mound for the Mariners, as the pair allowed three hits and four walks, with seven strikeouts. Sheridan had a perfect game going into the fifth inning before it was broken up by a leadoff single by Robinson.

Stewart and Wyatt Fillmore pitched for the Panthers, as the two scattered 10 hits and two walks, with two strikeouts.

The Mariners left seven runners on base and the Panthers four.

Dougherty reached on an error in the first inning and came around on an single through the left side by Freeman as the hosts took a 1-0 edge — and the Mariners plated two more in the second when Dorr scampered home on a wild pitch and Davis on a passed ball.

Dougherty added to the Mariner lead with a two-run double in the fourth to give the hosts a 5-0 lead, but the Panthers responded with an RBI-single by Adam Eutsler — who later scored on an error — as the hosts clung to a 5-2 lead.

Davis and Harvey chipped in with RBI-singles in the fifth for Oceanside, while Stewart responded with a two-run single in the seventh for Medomak Valley.
