FREEPORT—It might have been the 10:30 a.m. start time or even the aftermath of a tough loss Friday afternoon, but it took the Falmouth baseball team a few innings to hit its stride Saturday.

But the Yachtsmen ultimately did so and flexed their offensive muscle in a big way.

After the host Freeport Falcons jumped to a 2-0 second inning lead on back-to-back home runs from seniors Josh Weirich and Kaleb Farmer, Falmouth junior Thomas Fortier slammed the door and his teammates soon came to his rescue.

A clutch two-run double by junior Seamus Powers tied the score and opened the floodgates in the top of the third. The go-ahead run came in on an error and the Yachtsmen finished with four runs in that frame, added another in the fourth before erupting for six in the fifth to put it away.

Falmouth went on to a 12-2 victory behind a 13-hit attack, four turned double plays on defense and a Fortier six-hitter and improved to 13-2 on the year, ending the Falcons' best regular season in nine years at 10-6.
