Matt Powers singled home the tying and go-ahead runs in the sixth inning, and Nick Douglass struck out 10 in 4 2/3 innings of scoreless relief as the University of Southern Maine stayed alive in the Little East baseball tournament with a 5-2 win over UMass-Boston at Gorham.

The top-seeded Huskies (24-17) trailed 2-0 going to the sixth, when Tucker White and Nick Grady opened the inning with back-to-back singles. Brett Barrett was hit by a pitch to load the bases with two out, and an error on Matt Verrier’s grounder allowed a run to score. Powers then put USM ahead with his base hit.

White started another rally with a leadoff double in the seventh. Forrest Chadwick was intentionally walked with one out, and John Carey drew a walk to load the bases for Barrett, who delivered a two-run single.

Ben Ives started for USM and gave up RBI singles by Collin Keefer and Dominic Morbidelli in the second inning. Douglass relieved Ives with one out in the fifth and allowed just two hits the rest of the way.
