Tonight, the Kettleers hit the road following a rainout on Friday. They’ll head to McKeon Park to take on the Hyannis Harbor Hawks for the first time in 2022. Last season, Cotuit captured the Patriot Cup, winning the season series 4-2.
Cotuit extended its season opening win streak to four with a 7-0 win over the Bourne Braves. The Kettleers pulled away with a six-run fourth inning to support four pitchers in a shutout victory. On Friday, the matchup with Chatham was postponed to Thursday due to inclement weather.
The broadcasting team compiled game notes ahead of the Ketts’ fifth matchup. Check back later tonight for the postgame score and a game recap.
Game One Final Score: Cotuit 1, Brewster 0
- Player of the game: Jackson Kelley (Mercer)
- 3.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K
- Carter Trice (NC State) was the winning run with two outs in the bottom of the seventh. Trice led off the inning with a single through the left side. He then advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt from Brooks Baldwin (UNC Wilmington), and then to third on a groundout back to the pitcher. That brought up Kyle Karros (UCLA) with two gone, and the third baseman let a wild pitch from Brewster’s Ryan Chasse (Campbell) to bounce against the fence, bringing home Trice as the game-winning run for a final score of 1-0.
- Harrison Cohen (George Washington) made his second start of the season in game one of the doubleheader. The righthander threw for four out of the six innings, allowing no runs on two hits, with three strikeouts.
- Jackson Kelley (Mercer) was credited with the win after three frames, starting off his appearance with six straight Ks and finished up the contest after giving up just one hit.
- Baldwin had two successful bunts Sunday afternoon, one for an infield single in the fifth and then again as a sacrifice to advance the winning run to scoring position. Baldwin also impressed in the outfield with a diving snag on a line-drive back in the second. In the top of the seventh, Baldwin gunned down Brewster’s potential go-ahead run at second for the first out of the inning.
Game two of the doubleheader will start thirty minutes after the end of game one at 5:30 p.m. ET. Tyler Bosma (Kentucky) is on the bump to kick off the Ketts’ seventh game of the summer in an attempt to preserve the team’s undefeated record.
