Bourne 5, Orleans 2
2013 All-Star Ryan Kellogg (Arizona St.) was back in All-Star form against the Firebirds (5-8) on Tuesday night, as the Braves (10-3) stretched their winning streak to five games. Kellogg threw six shutout innings and lowered his season ERA to 0.75. He got run support from a two-run home run by Sun Devils teammate Brian Serven (Arizona St.) and a 2-for-3 day from Blake Allemand (Texas A&M). Bourne had scored five runs before Kellogg departed the game, and it was enough to win them the game. Orleans finally scored in the eighth and again in the ninth, but the offense came too late, as two runs were not enough to knock off the West-leading Braves.
Falmouth 8, Brewster 3
Steven Duggar (Clemson) and Cameron O’Brien (West Virginia) led a potent offensive attack in this game as the Commodores (5-7-1) rolled the Whitecaps (5-8). Duggar went 3-for-4 with two runs scored and two runs driven in, while O’Brien added three RBIs. Falmouth scored their eight runs with four two-run innings, all before Brewster had scored their first run. Commodores’ starter Matt Hall (Missouri St.) continues to impress, as he went seven scoreless innings in this one, allowing only three hits while striking out five. The Whitecaps had fifteen batters step up to the plate, but none were effective as Brewster scored all three runs in the eighth and ninth and did not come close to catching Falmouth.
Cotuit 2, Hyannis 14
The Hyannis Harbor Hawks (9-4) picked up its fourth straight win with a landslide 14-2 victory over the Cotuit Kettleers (6-7) at Lowell Park Tuesday night. While the runs slowly trickled in at the start, and offensive outburst from Hyannis in the final three innings went unmatched by the Kettleers. Bobby Melley (UConn) went 4-for-4 with four RBIs and two runs scored while Kyle Survance (Houston) picked up his first long ball of the summer. Tate Scioneaux (Southeastern Lousianna) got the win allowing just three hits over six innings of work. Cotuit recorded eight hits total on the night, the majority coming from Brendan Hendriks (San Francisco), Jameson Fisher (Southeastern Lousianna), and Kyle Holder (San Diego) who each went 2-for-4. Hyannis is 3-0 against Cotuit so far this summer with three match ups left in the regular season.
Harwich 4, Wareham 1
The Mariners (10-3) continued their impressive start to the season notching their third straight win and remaining seven points ahead of second place Chatham in the East Division with their win over the Gatemen (4-9). Harwich took an early 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first when Matt Winn (Virginia Military) knocked in a pair of runs on a single. Strong pitching by starter Michael Boyle (Radford) ensured that that would be all of the offense the Mariners would need. Boyle threw 5.1 innings striking out five and allowing just one unearned run en-route to the win. Jacob Evans (Oklahoma) was phenomenal in middle relief tossing 2.2 scoreless innings while allowing just one hit and striking out four. Seth McGarry (Florida Atlantic) came on to close, pitching one hitless inning while collecting the save. Kyle Barrett (Kentucky) also had a terrific night for the Mariners going 3-for-5 with a run scored and two stolen bases.
Chatham 16, Y-D 14
The Anglers (6-6-1) were able to outlast the Red Sox (4-9) in a wild game featuring non-stop offense and numerous lead changes. The surge of offensive production on both sides led to the game being called after eight innings due to darkness. In a game that did not feature much of a standout pitching performance from either squad, Chatham’s Kyle Davis (Southern California) came away with the win coming on to pitch the eighth and final inning and yielding one earned run while striking out a pair. As evidenced by the final score, there were a number of spectacular performances from the A’s offense. Kal Simmons (Kennesaw St.) led off going 3-for-6 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI. AJ Murray (Georgia Tech) was 2-for-5 with a double, a run scored and three RBI. Chris Shaw (Boston College) finished 4-for-6 with a home run, three runs scored and an RBI. Landon Lassiter (North Carolina) was 3-for-5 with a double, three runs scored and two RBI. Patrick Mazeika (Stetson) walked three times while finishing 1-for-2 with a home run, four runs scored and three RBI. There was certainly no lack of offense from the Red Sox as Rob Fonseca (Northeastern) went 2-for-2 with three walks, a double, a home run, four runs scored and three RBI. Hunter Cole (Georgia) was outstanding going 3-for-5 with a pair of home runs, two runs scored and four RBI.
