(Berkeley, Mass.) tossed four innings of two-hit ball and the Dean offense jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the first on their way to an 11-2 win over Massachusetts Maritime in non-league baseball action on Wednesday afternoon.

HOW IT HAPPENED:
Jeff Sharnick (Stratford, Conn.) and Zachary Bochenek (Fredericksburg, Va.) each had big hits as part of the six-run first, with Bochenek's two-run double giving the Bulldogs a 5-0 lead.

That lead continued to increase in the third when Dean pushed four more runs across, with RBI coming from Matt Troy (Norwalk, Conn.) on a single, Rolando Marcano (Bridgeport, Conn.) on a sacrifice fly and two more on a Sharnick single to right.

Joshua Cerretani (Peabody, Mass.) made the score 11-0 when he singled to left and Vincent Buonaiuto (Danbury, Conn.) raced home.

The Buccaneers did get on the board in the ninth when Jackson Simone blasted a solo shot to right and pinch hitter Angus MacNeil drove in another with a sacrifice fly.

INSIDE THE NUMBERS:
Sharnick shined at the plate, going 3-for-3 with three RBI for the Bulldogs, while Bryce Reilly (Dover, N.H.) and Giuseppe Casabianca (Yonkers, N.Y.) and Troy all scored a pair of runs.

UP NEXT:
Dean returns to action on Thursday when they host Anna Maria in a non-conference matchup beginning at 3:30 PM.
