NORWICH — The Hanover High baseball team rode six innings of four-hit Wes Stocken pitching and made the most of limited offensive opportunities to earn a 3-2 win over Sunapee on Tuesday at the Dresden Athletic Fields diamond, completing a two-game sweep of the Lakers.

Stocken, a junior, struck out four, walked one and didn’t allow a run after Sunapee (0-2) scored in the top of the second inning to erase an early Hanover run. Junior Josh Bucci worked the seventh for the save, allowing an unearned run.

Junior catcher John Hill reached base three times in three trips to the plate for the Marauders, with a single, a double and a walk. Colin Pierce and Casey Graham both drove in runs for Hanover.
