The Westhampton Aviators took down the Riverhead Tomcats twice — hard each time — in an Atlantic Collegiate Baseball League doubleheader at the Hite Athletic Complex in Westhampton on Tuesday.
The first-place Aviators (14-11) took a one-game lead over the North Fork Ospreys in the Hampton Division by virtue of their 10-1 and 16-1 wins, which were facilitated by eight home runs.
Aaron Cohn, Kevin Heller, Nick Camastro (3 for 4, three runs, three runs batted in, stolen base) and Joe Candela (two RBI) slugged home runs and Mike Rosenfeld went 2 for 2 and knocked in two runs in the first game.
In the nightcap, the Aviators scored 16 runs on 16 hits, including round-trippers by Heller (2 for 4, three RBI), Matt De Renzi (2 for 2, three RBI), Jordan Patterson (3 for 3, four RBI, two runs) and Candela. The Tomcats (10-13) managed only three hits.
