OLD WESTBURY, New York — Scott Heath of Westbrook drove in five runs with two home runs and a double and also pitched a complete game on Saturday afternoon to lead the University of Maine to a 6-2 baseball victory over New York Institute of Technology in the first game of a doubleheader at Lorenzo Field.

NYIT bounced back to take a 10-5 win in Game 2, and edged the Black Bears 8-6 Sunday in the series finale.

In the opener, Heath cranked a two-run homer in the first inning, stroked an RBI double in the third and slammed a two-run homer in the seventh to account for all but one of the runs for UMaine (19-24).

Steven Adam added a double and scored three runs to support Heath (4-3). The left-hander spaced eight hits and two runs and struck out 11 without walking a batter.

Luke Morrill of South Thomaston added a double and Brett Chappell added a sacrifice fly for the Black Bears.

Joe Daru (RBI) and Josh Canabal provided two singles each for NYIT (14-25). Starting pitcher Matt Busch (0-1) gave up four hits and four runs with two strikeouts and two walks in only three innings.

UMaine took the lead for good in the first when Adam hit a one-out single and rode home on Heath’s two-run shot.

The visitors made it 4-0 in the third when Adam doubled and scored on Heath’s double to left. Heath eventually scored on Chappell’s sac fly.

In the second game, NYIT’s three-run fifth inning gave it the lead for good.

Elias Martinez (2-5) gave up 10 hits and four earned run in six innings, before Michael Auriemmo worked a perfect seventh.

Louis Mele drove in two runs with a homer and a double for the Bears, while Josh Canabal (RBI) and Robert Fiato (double) contributed two hits each. Matt DiBiase cranked a three-run home run in the decisive fifth.

Alonzo Paulino Jr. hit a two-run blast in the second inning.

Jacob Gosselin-Deschesnes (2-2) surrendered seven hits and five runs (four earned) with three strikeouts and three walks in three innings to suffer the loss.

Heath paced UMaine with a two-run homer and a single. Sam Balzano of Portland collected three singles and scored twice. Chappell chipped in with a run-scoring single.

The Black Bears jumped out to a 3-0 lead through two innings behind Heath’s homer in the first. However, NYIT erased the deficit in the second thanks in part to Paulino Jr.’s two-run round-tripper and Canabal’s RBI single.

Nick Sebastian’s solo home run in the third put NYIT in front for keeps.

On Sunday, the Bears took advantage of wildness from NYIT starter David Plotkin as Brian Doran and Kevin Stypulkowski each drew bases-loaded walks to plate runs in the first inning.

A fielder’s choice groundout accounted for NYIT’s run in the first and it added two more in the fourth before the Bears rallied with a four-run fifth inning when Heath cranked a solo shot to right and Doran added a three-run homer.

NYIT came back with a four-run sixth to retake the lead, also using the long ball, as Joe Dara and Mele each hit two-run homers.

Connor Johnson (0-1) suffered the loss in relief as he pitched the final three innings, giving up three earned runs and four hits. He walked one and struck out four. Starter Logan Fullmer went four innings and gave up three runs and six hits. He also walked one and struck out four before Jeff Gelinas came on to pitch a scoreless inning.

JP Lopovac (1-4) earned the win in relief with two shutout innings.

The Bears return home to Mahaney Diamond in Orono for a league series this weekend against Binghamton, beginning with a doubleheader at 4 p.m. Friday.
