The North County Indians took advantage of wildness from the Santa Maria Reds’ pitching staff Tuesday to sweep a summer collegiate baseball doubleheader.

The Indians (25-10) scored five runs in the first inning of the opener to win 7-5. The Indians took the seven-inning nightcap 6-3.

In the opener, North County had 12 hits and benefited from eight Reds’ walks, including four in the first inning.

Santa Maria scored three runs in the bottom of the first before Brett Clark settled down on the mound, finishing with eight strikeouts and two walks in seven innings.

Michael Frigon was 3 for 3 for North County, and Josh Ramirez and Peter Lecce each added two hits. Frigon scored twice, and Connor O’Hare drove in two runs.

North County took the nightcap despite having only three hits, including only one when it scored four runs in the fourth inning to take the lead for good at 5-2.

Slater Lee gave up three hits and three runs, two earned, in five innings before Bryan Kirkpatrick pitched the final two innings and earned the save.
