- Exceptional Aces
- Chris Ellis (Ole Miss) pitched 6.0 innings, gave up four hits, no runs, and struck out one in the Kettleers 3-0 victory over Wareham. He was only four batters over the minimum. Ellis has only given up eight hits and one run so far this season, good for a 0.56 ERA.
- Joel Seddon (South Carolina) went the last 3.0 innings, earning the save. He gave up two hits and struck out one. He has now gone his first 8.2 innings in the Cape League without giving up an earned run.
- The Long Ball
- All three of the Kettleers runs came by way of the long ball tonight.
- Tim Kiene (Maryland) got it started in the bottom half of the first, when he launched a 2-out pitch deep over the right field fence to make it 1-0. It was his first of the season.
- Then, in the bottom of the fifth, Will Remillard (Coastal Carolina) lifted a two-run homer over the left field fence to make it 3-0. It was also his first of the season.
- New Comers
- Jake Fincher (North Carolina State) was one of the new additions to the active roster today. He started the game in right field and went 1-for-4 with a stolen base.
- Edwin Rios (Florida International) was also added to the roster prior to today’s game. He came in as a defensive replacement in the top of the fifth. He was 1-for-2 and scored a run when Remillard homered.
- Drew Jackson (Stanford) rounds out the list of players who got their first Cape League action Thursday. He appeared as a pinch runner for DH Kiene.
- Connor Castellano (Santa Fe JC), Danny Diekroeger (Stanford), and Patrick Mazeika (Stetson) have been inactivated.
