BARRINGTON – When senior righty John Sikie is “feeling it,” he’s usually outstanding.

When he’s not, well, he’ll walk and/or hit batters, and indicates no real feel for the zone around the plate.

Excepting one inning on Friday afternoon, Sikie proved to be much more of the former. The co-captain manufactured a stellar two-hitter with two walks and a six strikeouts in a six-frame stint, propelling Cumberland High to a solid 5-3 victory over Barrington before at least 150 fans at Victory Field.

With the winner-take-all triumph, the second-seeded Clippers (17-6) not only captured the R.I. Division I/Region IV Tournament crown, but solidified their berth in the D-I Final Four, which will begin Sunday at West Warwick’s McCarthy Field.
