OLD ORCHARD BEACH – Nick Spencer allowed five hits and struck out five to lead Falmouth to a 2-1 win over Wells in a Western Maine Conference baseball game Friday at The Ballpark.

Spencer (2-0) used well-timed off-speed pitches and received great defensive support as the Yachtsmen improved to 7-0.

“I relied on my curveball a lot,” said Spencer. “I made sure to try and get it started up in the zone so it would fall down for a strike. And I had my fastball going pretty good. It seemed like I had a little extra velocity there.”

Falmouth turned two double plays. The first came after a leadoff single in the first inning. The second came in a first-and-third situation with one out in the fourth. Spencer started the twin killing by snaring a comebacker, preserving a 1-0 lead.

“That double play was definitely the turning point for our team,” said Spencer, who has allowed one earned run total in his two complete-game wins. “We seemed kind of dead before that, but that definitely got the momentum going. It seemed like after that, everybody was more into the game. That’s always good for a ball club.”

Addison Foltmer also made a nice grab against the wall in left in the sixth.

The Yachtsmen scored in third and fourth innings, as the bottom portion of the order provided the spark. Ryan Conley, the No. 9 hitter, tripled and scored on Drew Proctor’s single in the third. In the fourth, Andrew Emple scored when Connor Murphy, hitting from the eighth slot, hit into a bases-loaded fielder’s choice to give Falmouth a 2-0 advantage.

“We got a couple of timely hits when we need them to get a couple across and get the win,” said Falmouth Coach Kevin Winship.

“The top of the lineup have really been the one’s producing for us, and today the bottom of the lineup came through. That’s why we have nine guys in the lineup. Everybody needs to produce to help us with our wins.”

Brandon Pridham did his part to keep his Wells (5-4) within striking distance. He allowed eight hits, struck out four and did not walk a batter against a team that was averaging more than eight runs per game.

The key to Pridham’s success was keeping the heart of Falmouth’s lineup in check. Seamus Powers, Grayson Beressi, Emple and Will D’Agostino entered the game hitting a combined .491. They went 2 for 12.

“I thought we played very, very well,” Wells Coach Chuck Chadbourne said. “They made a few more plays defensively, but I thought Brandon did everything he could to give us a chance to win the ball game.”

The Warriors scored in the fifth. Justin Lareau doubled and was driven home by Doug McLean’s single.
