Harwich 3 Cotuit 3
-This game marked Cotuit’s first extra inning game of the season, and their first tie of the season. Cotuit’s record on the season is 18-12-1.
-Cotuit staged a great comeback in the bottom of the ninth inning, when Hunter Cole (Georgia) knocked a two run homer to deep center to tie it up.
-The Kettleers clinched a playoff berth in the West with the Gatemen loss.
-Cotuit’s lineup got a little bit of a facelift in today’s game. Galli Cribbs Jr. (Clarendon) returned to the starting lineup at shortstop for the first time since July 6 against Hyannis. Cribbs went 1-3, before being pinch hit for in the ninth. Austin Byler (Nevada) also made his fielding debut for the Kettleers, playing third. Byler went 2-4 with two doubles, his first two hits as a Kettleer. Patrick Corbett (Coastal Carolina) made his first start of the season. All season Corbett had come in relief for Ben Smith (Coastal Carolina). Corbett went 4 innings, with one earned run, while striking out one and walking two. Finally, Kevin Bradley’s (Clemson) shuffle around the infield is complete. He played first, and has played every infield position aside from pitching. He went 0-4
-Four players from the Kettleers are representing the Western Division at the Cape Cod League All Star game. These players are outfielders Jake Fincher (NC State), Rhett Wiseman (Vanderbilt). Jared Walsh (Georgia) and Patrick Corbett (Coastal Carolina) are pitching for the West.

Clark Catching On

Bring on the Sox
-Cotuit will take on the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox at 5 p.m. at Red Wilson Field tomorrow. The Kettleers have split the series with the Red Sox 1-1 thus far.
