A baseball: Cambridge can't make up deficit

BOYNTON BEACH — Trinity Christian senior Adaric Kelly showed neither injury nor rust after a month's absence from the mound.

Kelly, who sprained his ankle a month ago, pitched a complete game and had six strikeouts Friday as the Warriors (22-3) ended Cambridge's season, winning 4-2.

In the bottom of the first Brandon Murray drove home two runs with a triple off Cambridge starter Matt Fishman. Trinity kept it coming in the second, taking a 4-0 lead. All five hits were for extra bases.

Cambridge (24-4) scored in the fourth when Andrew Widell came home on a wild pitch but the Lancers left runners at second and third. Widell scored in the sixth on Zac Gilcrease's sacrifice fly.

The Lancers brought Florida State signee Peter Miller in to pitch the sixth inning. Coach Rick Shears said they considered putting Miller in sooner but decided against it.

"He's the kind of guy that needs some warm-up time," Shears said. "You can second guess and I really don't even want to do that. He struggles a little bit early sometimes and definitely goes into relief mode. Maybe I made the wrong decision but Fish has pitched some big games for us."
