SOUTH KINGSTOWN — Christopher Brito's three-run home run highlighted a five-run second inning and the Mystic Schooners held off the Ocean State Waves, 9-7, on Tuesday in a New England Collegiate Baseball League Southern Division game at Old Mountain Field.

Brito (Rutgers) finished with two hits. His home run gave Mystic a 6-0 lead.

Michael DeMartino (Southern Connecticut) also homered for the Schooners, a solo shot in the third inning that made it 7-1.

Brendan Cumming (Princeton) added three hits, including a double, and two RBIs for Mystic (16-14), which has won three straight.

The Waves (12-17) scored twice in the bottom of the ninth on a two-out, two-run single by Slade Wilks (Southern Mississippi). But Mystic's Tim Blaisdell (Hartford) followed with a strikeout to end the game.

The Schooners' next home game is Friday against the Danbury Westerners at Fitch High School. First pitch is scheduled for 6:05 p.m.
