HYANNIS– Here a few notes from Tuesday’s 10-4 win in Hyannis against the Harbor Hawks.
- With Tuesday’s win, the Kettleers are now 5-0 when they score five or more runs and 0-3 when they are held to below that number.
- Will Robertson (Creighton) led off for the Kettleers for the first time this season as manager Mike Roberts shifted the Cotuit lineup.
- Peyton Burdick got the day off, and Beau Brundage (Portland) batted fourth, while Eric Jones (Davidson) slid down to seventh in the order.
- Speaking of Robertson, he entered Tuesday’s game with a .407 batting average on the season, good for sixth in the Cape League. He was also tied for hits with Spencer Brickhouse of Bourne, as each have 11 apiece.
- Jakob Goldfarb (Oregon) made his debut on Tuesday, batting sixth and playing right field for the Kettleers. He is still looking for his first hit however, as he went 0 for 3 at the plate
- Cotuit now has nine double plays on the season, the most of any team in the Cape League.
- After yesterday’s outing, John Baker (Ball State) has the most strikeouts of any pitcher on the Cape with 13.
- The Kettleers left 4 runners on base on Tuesday, their second-fewest total of the season.
- Thomas Dillard (Mississippi) and Zach Biermann’s (Coastal Carolina) eighth inning home runs were each their first home runs on the Cape.
- It was also the first time since last year that the Kettleers have hit back-to-back home runs since Grayson Jenista and Griffin Conine accomplished the feat.
- Hyannis is the first opponent the Kettleers have faced twice this season. Cotuit has yet to play Chatham, Harwich and Falmouth so far in 2018.
- Cotuit will get back at it on Wednesday when they host the Orleans Firebirds. First pitch is set for 5:00 p.m. at Lowell Park.
