Score/result: Cotuit 1-5 Bourne
Cotuit hitter of the game: Carter Trice (Old Dominion) had a productive day for the Kettleers, smacking three base hits and driving in the first run of the game. Two of Trice’s hits went for extra bases, as the righty was the lone bright spot for the Cotuit offense all game. The Old Dominion product’s double to left in the top of the third opened the scoring in the game, and gave the Kettleers a 1-0 lead.
Cotuit pitcher of the game: Zach Fruit (Eastern Michigan) tossed two scoreless innings out of the bullpen. Fruit struck out two and surrendered just one hit during his outing, keeping the Bourne bats at bay to keep the Kettleers in the game. Fruits final line was 2.0 IP, 2 K, 1 H, 0 ER.
Key stat: 0. That’s the number of hits that the 3,4,5, and 6 hitters of the Cotuit lineup produced on the night. The four in the middle have carried the Cotuit offense as of late, but could not produce tonight to seal the series.
Cotuit: 1 run/5 hits/1 error
Bourne: 5 runs/7 hits/3 errors
