It was another day of interleague play between the rival Central and Susquehanna Leagues Saturday.

And it was another dominating performance by the Central League squads, which won five of the six contests.

Windsor was the sole Susquehanna League squad to grind out a victory, as the Cardinals downed Vikings by a 5-2 margin on the road.

Hunter Sentz pitched six strong innings to earn the win for Windsor (12-9). Sentz scattered six hits and fanned four while allowing just two runs.

Tyler Stabley, who picked up the save by pitching a scoreless seventh, finished with two hits and two runs, while Cole Daugherty and Kieran Kearns also swatted a pair of hits in the triumph. Both of Kearns’ hits went for extra bases, as he smashed a second-inning home run to go along with a fourth-inning double.

Trent Ketterman led Vikings (3-15) with two hits while driving in a run.
