BRIDGTON, Maine ---- Bryan Dwyer (Abington) produced a big day at the plate and on the mound as the Massasoit baseball team split a doubleheader at Bridgton Academy, falling 10-1 before winning 3-2.
It was a memorable day for Dwyer, who recorded a couple of firsts on Saturday. The freshman clubbed his first collegiate homer and earned his first win on the mound for the Warriors.
Game 1: Bridgton Academy 10, Massasoit 1
Bridgton scored at least one run in each of the four innings, including a six-run third to claim game one of the twinbill against the visiting Warriors.
Dwyer rocketed a solo blast in the second inning, the first of his career at Massasoit, and fellow freshman Kevin Jaynes (Brockton) went 2-for-3 in the loss.
Game 2: Massasoit 3, Bridgton 2
In only his third appearance on the mound all season, Dwyer went the distance, firing a complete game six-hitter as Massasoit won 3-2.
Dwyer (1-0) fanned six and walked only one to earn the victory on the mound.
Following an out, cleanup hitter Dwyer put the ball in play, allowing McSherry to score on the groundout with what proved to be the game-winning run. Next up was Alex Carey (East Bridgewater), who knocked in an insurance run with a two-out RBI single. Carey finished the game 2-for-3.
