(VIDEO) Hyannis Harbor Hawks Keep on Rolling, Bourne Braves Finally Break Into Win Column

COTUIT – A two-out basehit from JaVon Shelby (Kentucky), combined with an infield error gave the Hyannis Harbor Hawks a first-inning, 1-0, lead that they would build on and not relinquish Tuesday night (June 16) en route to a 7-3 finale at Lowell Park and an even tighter grip on first place in the West Division.

The Harbor Hawks finished the first inning with a 2-0 lead and added three more in the eighth inning and another pair of runs in the top of the ninth to solidify their seventh win in the first eight games of the 2015 Cape League season.

Boston College righty Michael King notched the win with five superlative innings of work on the mound, allowing just two hits while striking out five and walking one.

Jake Noll (Florida Gulf Coast), the Harbor Hawks’ designated hitter, went 3-5 with three RBI, Shelby went 2-4 with one RBI and rightfielder Austin Hays (Jacksonville) added a pair of hits.

Dalbec Blast Solidifies Orleans Firebirds’ Victory Over Y-D Red Sox

ORLEANS – Return Firebirds’ slugger Bobby Dalbec (Arizona) belted a two-run shot Tuesday night in the bottom of the sixth-inning to cap off a three-run rally that sealed a win in front of a relatively sparse, midweek  home crowd as Orleans defeated the visiting Y-D Red Sox, 5-1.

Dalbec went 1-3 with two RBI, but interestingly enough, the Y-D Red Sox outhit the hosts, 8-5, and even a pair of Orleans’ errors couldn’t bridge the deficit for the defending Cape League champion Sox.

Y-D shortstop Donovan Walton (Oklahoma State) went 3-5 and was the sole batter for either team to collect multiple hits on the night.

The Braves loaded the bases in the top of the 8th inning and Max McDowell (UConn) and Corey Julks (Houston) eventually came home on a Vince Fernandez (Cal-Riverside) two-run basehit that would prove to be the game-winner. McDowell reached on an error to start the inning.
