- After the 10-0 loss to Yarmouth-Dennis Friday, the Kettleers have now given up a total of 28 runs in the past three games. They had given up 45 runs in the first 16 games all season long.
- The Cotuit pitching staff has given up 35 hits in the past three, as well.
- Tonight was the second time the Kettleers have been shut out all season long. The first came back on June 22, when Bourne threw a combined no-hitter at Lowell Park.
- Alex Haines (Seton Hill) got the start for Cotuit. He lasted only an inning, giving up three earned runs on two hits and four walks. He had two batters and hadn’t given up a run in his first 13.0 innings of the season prior to the start tonight.
- Daniel Savas (Illinois St) got his first start of the year for the Red Sox. He went 7.0 shutout innings, gave up only two hits and struck out seven. He faced the minimum, 15 hitters, through the first five innings.
- Demetrius Stewart (Florida St) hit his second home run of the year, a grand slam in the sixth to open the Red Sox lead up to 8-0 at the time.
- Three Y-D. players had multiple-hits: Taylor White (Nevada Las Vegas), Taylor Smart (Tennessee), and Alex Blandino (Stanford).
- Only three Cotuit players had a single hit: Jake Fincher (North Carolina St), Jared Walsh (Georgia), and Rhett Wiseman (Vanderbilt).
- After going 4-for-4 with a BB in yesterday’s game, Mike Ford (Princeton) went 0-for-4 at the plate tonight. He is now third in the Cape League with a .345 batting average.
- It is the first time the Kettleers have lost three straight games all season long.
