HYANNIS- The Wareham could be in for a tougher test than what it seems on paper playing a Hyannis team that broke out of its shell last night.
The Harbor Hawks went into last night with the least amount of runs scored in the CCBL. To make matters worse they were playing against the Falmouth Commodores who only allowed 1 run in their first 2 games of the season. Hyannis came to play, scoring 9 runs in a 9-9 tie.
The Wareham pitching staff has looked great the first couple of games but they have their hands full today if the Harbor Hawks play the same as last night. Some Hyannis players that stood out include Jared DeSantolo (FAU) was 3-4 with 1 RBI, Adam Hackenberg (Clemson) was 2-3 with 2 RBI, and Brooks Carlson (Samford) was 1-3 with 2 RBI.
The Gatemen tied the Firebirds last night 4-4 but in reality should have won. A questionable call and defensive miscues spoiled some impressive pitching outings. Brandon Pfaadt (Bellarmine) pitched 3 hitless innings with 5 strikeouts, Wiliam Fleming (Wake Forest) pitched 2 scoreless innings with 4 strikeouts, and Aaron Davenport (Navy) went 3 innings with 5 strikeouts.
On the mound for the Gatemen today is Nick Richmond (Pfeiffer). Richmond was 7-0 in 64 innings pitched with 83 strikeouts.
As for Hyannis, Patrick Frederickson (Minnesota) is on the hump. Frederickson was 2-5 in 48 innings pitched, walking 32 batters, and striking out 45.
