FARMINGTON — Fisher College allowed only eight hits on the day, sweeping UMaine-Farmington by scores of 10-0 and 4-0 in a non-conference baseball doubleheader Monday afternoon at Hippach Field.

With four conference doubleheaders in five days beginning Wednesday, UMF went with its younger pitchers, starting freshman Riley Chickering and sophomore Mark Leahy. For the Falcons (25-12), three pitchers combined on the shutout in the opener and Brian Rosa went all seven innings for a two-hit shutout in game two. Rosa retired the last 15 batters he faced.

For Fisher, Jose Fortuna went 3 for 3 and drove in four runs in game one, while Jordan Berry doubled twice. Dominic Zaher singled, doubled, and homered in game two.

Erskine graduate Tom Grady had two hits for UMF (14-10) in the first game.

BOWDOIN 10, THOMAS 4, 6 INNINGS: The Polar Bears held off the Terriers in a non-conference game in Brunswick.

Bowdoin (11-16) scored four runs in the bottom of the first inning and five more in the fourth. The Polar Bears won despite committing five errors. Sean Mullaney had two hits and drove in three runs.

Like UMF, Thomas also has four doubleheaders in five days beginning Wednesday. The Terriers also were coming off back-to-back doubleheaders this weekend, so they didn’t throw any of their four most-used pitchers on Monday, and also rested several starters.

Nik Beeson and Matt Romandetti singled for the only hits for Thomas (12-15).
