Playing their second game in six days, the Medomak Valley and Rockland baseball and softball squads converged on the Panthers’ home fields Wednesday as both the Tiger baseball and Panther softball teams continued to surge toward the postseason.

Both the Panther softball and Tiger baseball teams won their respective contests May 20, with little changing Wednesday as both teams came away with victories in convincing fashion.

On the softball field, the Panthers scored six runs in the second inning and pulled away from the visiting Tigers in a 12-3 win. On the baseball diamond, the Tigers needed little time as they pounced quickly and the game ended early, with the visitors prevailing 16-5 in five innings.

Also in action Wednesday were the Camden Hills baseball and softball teams, with the Windjammer baseball squad posting an 8-3 win over the Lincoln Academy Eagles of Newcastle. The ‘Jammer softball team was less fortunate, dropping a 12-3 decision to the Eagles (information from that game will be added later).

Many of the aforementioned Midcoast baseball and softball squads are vying for not only the top spots in their respective regions, but also potentially berths in the upcoming Kennebec Valley Athletic Conference Class B championship games. Information on those games will be provided when it becomes available.
