COTUIT, MA – An offensive explosion by Falmouth left Cotuit stunned on their home field as the Commodores rolled to an easy, 13-0, victory over the Kettleers.
The fifth inning was where it all fell apart for the Kettleers as Falmouth was able to get four runs against losing pitcher Barret Browning (Florida St., 2 Ks, 1 BB), who had pitched very well up through the four previous innings, and one run against reliever Derik Olvey (Notre Dame, 2 Ks, 0 BB). No reliever for the Kettleers was able to stop the bleeding once it began in the fifth, and the Commodores continued to pour it on until they had thirteen runs in eight innings.
The offensive surge for the Commodores began in the fifth when Mike Ambort (Lamar, 2 for 5 batting, 3 RBI) singled to bring in Jon Still (Stetson, 3 for 4 batting) for the first run of the game. Four more runs were added with four singles and a hit batter before the Kettleers were even able to get the first out of the inning. Cotuit was never able to get on track after this inning, and things continued to get worse as the Falmouth offense continued to pour it on while their own bats went completely silent due to the solid pitching on the part of the Commodores.
As the Cotuit pitchers struggled to get the Falmouth hitters out, Stephen Faris (Clemson, 5 Ks, 0 BBs) breezed through eight innings, picking up his second victory of the season, never allowing Cotuit to gain any momentum. Faris only allowed two hits during his entire eight innings of work, and only in one inning did a Cotuit player reach second base. Without facing any pressure from Cotuit, the Commodores were able to completely seize control of the game, which they did and ended up giving the Kettleers their worse loss of the season.
Cotuit now falls to .500 on the season with this extremely tough loss to swallow they will look to avenge their poor outing tomorrow versus league-leading Bourne.
