Mechanic Falls sweeps

DISFIELD — Swasey-Torrey’s seventh-inning comeback fell short when it stranded the tying and winning runs in scoring position in dropping a pair of close American Legion games to Mechanic Falls on Saturday.

Mechanic Falls scored twice in the eighth inning for a 5-3 extra-inning triumph in Game 1, before hanging on for a 5-4 victory in the nightcap.

After Dixfield tied the opener with a pair of runs in the fourth inning, the game remained tied 3-3 until the eighth, when Mechanic Falls used two walks a hit-batsman, a single and an error to score twice. Wendell King hit a triple and a single for Mechanic Falls, while Kyle Hutchinson and Arik Fenstermacher had doubles for Swasey. Tyler Gates added two hits.

The nightcap saw Swasey fall behind 5-2 before storming back in the bottom of the seventh. Tyler Chaisson, who hit a solo home run to right in the second inning, ripped a two-out, two-run double with the bases loaded to cut the deficit to one, but Eric Bolduc was retired for the final out when his smash was knocked down by the second baseman.

Ryan Lafleur and Spencer Ross combined on a four-hitter for Swasey. Mike Litchfield picked up the win for Mechanic Falls.

Bessey sweep N. Oxford

PARIS — Matt Verrier had four hits and drove in six runs during a doubleheader to lead Bessey Motors to a 16-6 and 8-7 victories over Northern Oxford County.

Bessey completed the sweep by scoring the game-winner with two outs in the seventh inning on a fielding error that plated Justin Frechette, who had singled and stole second. Both Verrier and Norhtern Oxford’s Matt Staires drove in a pair of runs during their team’s four-run outbursts in the fourth inning.

Andrew Keniston led Bessey with a single and a double, while Matt Laubauskis and Alex Gagnon both had two hits for the visitors. Erik Henderson was the winning pitcher.

In the opener, Bessey scored in every inning to bring the game to an early conclusion. Verrier had three hits, including a double, while Dan Millett, Brendan Chase and Evan Humphrey all had two hits. Chase and Humphrey also had three RBIs apiece. The teams combined for five triples in the game, with Staires and Laubauskis for Northern Oxford, while Chase had two and Humphrey one for the winners.
