Cotuit (7-14) struggled during a loss to Falmouth (8-13) in front of a packed crowd at Lowell Park on July 4. Two errors helped the Commodores get some runs on the board and the Kettleers bats were silent, despite scoring eight runs against Falmouth a day before. Once again, Cotuit’s righty-dominated lineup struggled to hit against left-handed pitchers.
With the win, Falmouth moved a game ahead of Cotuit in the West Division.
At the plate
Jack Klein (Stanford) went 2-for-4 and extended his hitting streak to nine games. Matt Albanese (Bryant) drove in his ninth run of the season. However, Will Haynie (Alabama) struck out in each of his three at bats
In the field
The Kettleers committed two errors, one in the third inning and the other in the fourth, which aided in Falmouth scoring its four runs. Cotuit had gone seven games in a row without committing an error after being plagued by defensive mistakes earlier in the year.
Haynie continued to show off his skill behind the plate, throwing out the two runners that tried to steal on him.
Five — Gaa and Paez are each up to five errors on the year, which lead the team.
“July Fourth is just a marvelous day … You saw what this Norman Rockwell-ish town has on July Fourth. I think it’s just an amazing day in the community and we’re thankful we had a home game to play … Our responsibility is to become a part of the community and that’s really important. ” — Cotuit head coach Mike Roberts
