Harwich 5, Brewster 3
A four-run fourth inning got the Mariners (21-13-2) back in the win column and back into a tie with Orleans for first place in the East as the Whitecaps (12-23-1) continue to slide further into the basement. Robby Kalaf (Florida International) put Harwich in a position to win with a strong performance on the mound going five innings and allowing one earned while punching out five en-route to the win. Johnathan Frebis (Middle Tennessee St.) was equally as impressive in relief as he came on for four scoreless innings and struck out three to pick up the save. Angelo Amendolare (Jacksonville) led the charge on offense for the Mariners going 1-for-2 with a pair of runs driven in and two stolen bases.

Scott Kingery (Arizona), Kevin Martir (Maryland) and Zach Gibbons (Arizona) also notched a pair of hits for Brewster, but the hits didn’t come at the right time and did not result in enough runs to overpower Harwich.
