Perito struck out seven and walked just one while allowing only one unearned run as his Clippers climbed to 5-11 on the season. Dennis-Yarmouth fell to 10-8 with its second straight loss. The Dolphins’ Gandin McCaffrey took the loss on the hill.

Falmouth’s Nick Couhig and Emmet Kelliher paced the Clipper hitting attack, each going 2-3 and each with a double and stolen base while Couhig tacked on an RBI.

In the bottom of the second inning, Falmouth’s Kyle Hogan singled and stole second base before advancing to third on Kelliher’s basehit to put men on the corners. Kelliher then stole second to put two men in scoring position. Hogan scored on a passed ball and Kelliher advanced before scoring on a Tom Tobey sacrifice fly for an early, 2-0 Clipper lead.

Ben Chapasko drove in a run in the fourth to narrow the Falmouth lead to 2-1 but in the fifth inning Falmouth plated another pair for insurance as Perito kept the D-Y hitters off-balance.

Tobey singled to start the rally and eventually came home on a Gates Kelliher sacrifice fly for a 3-1 lead and then Couhig drove in Perito with a double to make it 4-1, Clippers.

Hogan walked and scored the fifth and final Falmouth run in the bottom of the sixth inning on a single by Hunter Scribner.

Falmouth heads to Eldredge Park in Orleans Friday night at 6:30 to face the Nauset Warriors. Dennis-Yarmouth was slated to play again today.

sophomore righty Owen Cottle.

Cottle needed just 103 pitches in seven innings of work, throwing 71 strikes and he retired the first batter he faced in each of the seven innings he threw. The precocious mound magician struck out five and walked just one in a game that lasted less than 90 minutes.

The Monomoy lineup gave Cottle all he would need in the third inning as Drew Sematoreled off with a single, followed by consecutive singles from Jimmy Hinesley, Noah Nickerson (RBI), Brandon Hamilton (RBI) and with one out, from David Nichols (RBI). Nichols finished with a 2-3 day at the plate.

The Sharks continue this four-game homestand at Whitehouse Field today when Abington comes to town – all remaining games are South Shore League contests.
