Michigan sophomore southpaw Brett Adcock got the win and Hofstra righty Alec Eisenberg got the save for the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox at Merrill “Red” Wilson Field Wednesday night as the duo combined to pitch a 2-0 shutout over the visiting Falmouth Commodores. Adcock allowed all three Commodore hits and Eisenberg struck out six in three perfect relief innings with no hits and no walks.

The Sox took advantage of a pair of leadoff walks in the bottom of the second inning and some timely groundouts to notch their first and only-needed run, but tacked on another in the sixth after a Luke Bonfield (Arkansas) double and Connor Wong (Houston) sac fly.

Second baseman Tommy Edman (Stanford) went 2-3 for the Red Sox.

Harwich Mariners Outlast the Whitecaps on the Road

Harwich plated four runs in the second inning and held onto that advantage most of the way until scoring an insurance run in the eighth frame.

Old Dominion rightfielder Nick Walker went 2-3 with one RBI and shortstop Connor Justus (Georgia Tech) went 1-2 with one RBI and a pair of walks to pace the Harwich lineup.
