Wareham Gatemen One Game Out of First Place with Win

WAREHAM — The Wareham Gatemen (9-8) plated three runs in the first inning at Clem Spillane Field last night and that would be all the hosts needed as they downed the visiting Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox (7-9), 4-2.

Evan Hill got the win after five solid innings of shutout pitching as the 6’5” Michigan Wolverine southpaw struck out three and walked just one while scattering two hits. Middle reliever Brett Hanewich (Stanford) got tagged for a pair of runs in his 2.1 innings on the hill but then Cal-Poly Pomona closer Ryan Olson closed the door on the Red Sox in the final 1 2/3 innings for the save.

Wareham catcher Andrew Knizner (NC State) went 1-3 with one RBI and was a key part of the host’s first-inning three-spot, while DH Nick Cieri (2-4, RBI), John Sternagel (2-4) and Andrew Calica (2-2, RBI) each had multiple-hit games.

Donnie Walton (Oklahoma State) put the Sox on the scoreboard in the top of the sixth inning and Cole Billingsley (South Alabama) scored on a wild pitch after he reached on a walk but that was all the visitors would garner the rest of the way.

The Gatemen are one game behind the first place Hyannis Harbor Hawks in the West Division.

Brewster Whitecaps Pick Up Win at Veterans Field against Anglers

Righty JD Busfield (Loyola Marymouth) got the victory for the Whitecaps and fanned five batters while allowing just two hits, but Brewster picked up its runs without the benefit of any run-scoring hits last night on the road.

Two of the three runs scored by the visiting Whitecaps were unearned but a pair of errors and a wild pitch ended up being the way that Brewster finished it off with a 3-0 combined shutout.

Colin Lyman (Louisville) and Nick Giarratano (San Francisco) both collected a pair of hits on the night for Brewster.

Cotuit Kettleers Snap Out of Funk with Big Win over Orleans Firebirds

Mired in a 1-8 slump, the Cotuit Kettleers (5-12) snapped out of it last night at Elizabeth Lowell Park with a 5-4, walk-off win on a bases loaded walk from Kort Peterson (UCLA) in the bottom of the ninth inning with one out.

The visiting Orleans Firebirds – atop the Cape League’s East Division at 11-5 – outhit the host Kettleers, 11 to eight, but four errors proved critical in Cotuit snatching the win after a 4-4 tie heading into the bottom of the ninth. Michael Paez (Coastal Carolina) reached on an error to lead off the ninth and eventually scored on Peterson’s RBI-walk.

The free error and eventual free pass made a winner out of Cotuit reliever Nick Lewis (Baylor) who went five innings and struck out five while allowing one run on a walk and four hits.

Brett Stephens (UCLA) doubled in a run in the first inning and ended up going 2-4 with one RBI while Branden Berry (Washington) belted his first home run of the season – a solo shot – in the bottom of the second frame. He also went 2-4 with one RBI.

Orleans’ slugger Kyle Lewis (Mercer) drove in a run to put Orleans on the scoreboard in the third frame and drove in another to tie it at 4-4 in the ninth before Cotuit walked off with the win. Lewis went 2-4 with two RBI on the evening.
