Orleans Stages Comeback over Harwich Mariners, Lead Building in East

ELDREDGE PARK — Down 2-1 going into the bottom of the 8th inning, the East Division-leading Orleans Firebirds staged a four-run rally that all began with a bases-loaded walk to take away a victory over the visiting Harwich Mariners, 5-2, last night in Orleans.

Wright State catcher Sean Murphy walked on a 3-2 count with bases loaded in the bottom of the eighth inning to drive in Alex Call (Ball State) to tie the game at 2-2 and then the floodgates, of sorts, opened wide for the hosts.

With no outs, Orleans’ Tres Barrera (Texas) rapped an RBI-single to make it 3-2. On a subsequent Trey York fielder’s choice ground out for the first out of the inning, Orleans’ Willie Abreu (Miami) scored to make it 4-2 and then Austin Miller (Loyola Marymount) hit a sacrifice fly to centerfield to drive in Murphy for the Firebirds’ 5-2 lead.

Reliever Parker Bean (Liberty) notched the win after one inning of work with one strikeout and one walk.

Miller was the sole batsman for Orleans with multiple hits one the night (two) while the Mariners’ Connor Justus (Georgia Tech) went 2-3.

Orleans is now 14-5 and remains in first place in the East Division.

Hyannis Harbor Hawks Ride Birk’s Bat, Nick Deeg’s Arm for Win

McKEON PARK – While the Orleans Firebirds were busy adding to their first place lead in the East, the West-Division leading Hyannis Harbor Hawks were busy defeating the Falmouth Commodores Thursday night to the tune of a 5-1 victory.

Texas A&M’s Ryne Birk drove in JaVon Shelby (Kentucky) in the bottom of the second inning to give Hyannis a 2-1 lead but Birk made a night of it with three runs batted in in all.

On the pitcher’s mound, however, it was Central Michigan southpaw Nick Deeg who was brilliant throughout his six innings of work as he limited Falmouth to just one hit and one run while striking out six for his first career Cape League victory.

The Harbor Hawks are now 12-8 on the season and remain atop the West Division in first place, two games ahead of the Wareham Gatemen (10-9).
