FARMINGTON — University of Maine at Farmington won close twice to sweep a college baseball doubleheader against University of Maine at Presque Isle on Tuesday.

The Beavers (8-19, 6-6 NAC) took Game 1 with a 3-1 victory and then rallied past the Owls (6-25, 3-9) in the fourth inning to slip away with a 10-7 victory in Game 2.

In the first game, Oxford Hills grad Troy Johnson had two hits and drove in a pair of runs, while winning pitcher Riley Bartell (3-2) went the distance, giving up five hits and striking out eight batters. Will Cauchon singled and drove in a run.

The second game proved to be a struggle for the Beavers, who were leading 2-0 after one inning. But the Owls unloaded on UMF in the second inning with seven runs.

However, UMF winning pitcher Aaron Gorsche (2-3) held his ground the rest of his way and kept the Owls silent before being relieved by Will Harriman in the fifth inning.

The Beavers scored eight runs over the course of the third, fourth and fifth innings. Ryan Sargent (three RBIs), Johnson (three RBIs) and Cauchon all homered.
