SACO — Conor Purvis went 4 for 4 and pitched six solid innings, Evan Balzano homered and Thornton Academy used a seven-run second to put away Bonny Eagle 12-4 in an SMAA baseball game Tuesday.

The Golden Trojans (4-1) scored once in the first before the seven in the second.

The second began with a double by Benjamin Lambert and a single by Mitchell Jacques before RBI singles by Brandon Hall and Purvis.

Later in the inning, Purvis added a line double to left to drive in freshman Brogan Searle-Belanger.

“Everything was feeling good today,” Purvis said. “Every pitch felt like a beachball coming toward the plate and everything was dropping in. It was just a great day.”

Still, Thornton Coach Ray Petit wasn’t satisfied with his team’s defense.

“We struggled a bit defensively and we need to clean that up,” Petit said. “Offensively we did a really great job. (Purvis) went six innings but he’s even better than what he showed today. He battled through it and that’s the key.”

The Scots (3-2) scored their first run in the second. Matthew Bridges reached on a walk, then scored on a double by Cameron Robinson.

Bonny Eagle tacked on two runs in the third when Devin Butler scored on a wild pitch and Lane Poirier on a groundout.

After the third, Purvis allowed three hits through the sixth.

The Scots scored their final run in the seventh on an RBI single by Dana McKay.

“I’d like to keep the ball lower in the zone. I was overthrowing for a bit there, but today we came out playing really well,” Purvis said.

The Trojans added four runs in the fifth, including Balzano’s solo homer.

Adam Gibbons, Searle-Belanger and Lambert, who finished with three runs, all scored in the fifth.

“Coming out offensively like we did today was big,” Petit said. “We hadn’t done that in a while and hopefully we take that with us to Massabesic on Thursday.”

Bonny Eagle will look to get back on track Thursday at home against Gorham.
