Luke Weisenberg pitched six strong innings for Middletown and Diego Carrillo and Eric Wilson had 3 hits apiece as the Blue Dragons bounced back from their first loss with a 9-2 win over Plainville on Wednesday.

Weisenberg, a sophomore right-hander, allowed 3 hits, walked 2 and struck out 7 and did not allow an earned run. Carillo was 3 for 3 with 3 RBIs, 3 steals and 2 runs scored, while Wilson scored a run and drove in one.

“It was a big day for both Luke and Diego,” said Middletown coach Dan Botti, whose club improved to 3-1 after losing to Platt 4-2 on Monday. “We’re glad the boys bounced back with a good win after we let one get away from us a bit on Monday. We’re hoping to cap off the week with another win.”
