Recap: The Kettleers took a 1-0 lead into the 9th inning and had played solid baseball up to that point. After a leadoff single off Jack Anderson (Penn State), Justin Dunn (Boston College) came in the game and could not hold the lead. The game winning run came when the bases were loaded, Dunn threw a curveball in the dirt that Haynie could not come up with. The Brewster Whitecaps won 2-1 on a walk off wild pitch.
Offensive Performance: The bottom of the lineup gave the Kettleers most of the offense on Wednesday night. Cole Fabio when 2-3 in the nine spot and Brody Weiss had the only RBI the day on a hard single past a diving second baseman.
Pitching Performance: Jon Woodcock was terrific yet again for the Kettleers. He claims he didn’t have his best stuff against Brewster but worked his way out of trouble. He threw five scoreless innings, surrendering four hits and walks a piece while striking out three. His ERA dipped to 0.84 on the season. Jack Anderson was also very good for three innings but the only base runner he allowed was the leadoff man in the 9th inning.
They Said It: A visibly disappointed Mananger Mike Roberts summed up his team’s performance against Brewster, saying, “We are just really struggling still defensively and offensively. We had all kinds of chances out there but just couldn’t drive runs in. When it comes to 1-0 games, it’s who executes best late in the game and they executed in the 9th inning.”
Looking Ahead: The Kettleers (11-19) face a crucial series against the Falmouth Commodores (12-18) on Friday and Saturday. The Kettleers will play at home on Friday, and then travel to Falmouth to fight for the 4th place spot (playoff seed) on Saturday.
