Jack Cyr paced the Bucks with a home run, a double and three RBIs. J.C. Comtois singled twice and drove in two runs and Tyler Maguire hit two singles with an RBI.
For sixth-seeded Dexter (12-7), Casey Jordan led the way with a single and an RBI, while Trevor Fogarty, Brandon Spratt, Dylan Graffam, Dustin Sirabella and A. J. McLaughlin each posted a single.
