WAREHAM- The Wareham offense will have to play as well as it did yesterday in order to compete with the league leading Chatham Anglers
The Chatham Anglers (4-1) have gotten off to a hot start to the 2019 season currently tied for the best record in CCBL. In a matchup of two high-powered offenses last night it was the Anglers who prevailed defeating the Y-D Red Sox (2-2) 7-3.
Some players that stood out for Chatham include Keaton Rice (Bradley) who was 3-4 with 3 RBI, Jorge Arenas (Stetson) who was 2-4, and Kolby Kubichek who pitched 4 no-hit innings. Chatham has had fantastic pitching only allowing 7 runs in 45 innings played.
Wareham has found its success through the offense. The Gatemen have the third best offense in the CCBL. The stats may be inflated by the 8thinning in Hyannis yesterday, however whats not inflated is the Gatemen being ranked 3rdin hits and 2ndin home runs.
The Wareham Gatemen had their best game of the season yesterday defeating the Hyannis Harbor Hawks (0-3-1) 12-5. The result was in doubt until a 9 run 8thinning sealed the game for good.
Several players left their mark including Darren Baker (Cal Berkeley) going 3-5 with 1 RBI, Mike Antico (St. Johns) was 3-5 with 3 RBI, and Kameron Guangorena (Fullerton) who was 2-4. Baker in particular has gotten off to a real hot start to the season with a hit in all 4 Gatemen games.
Another player to watch out for today is Adrian Del Castillo (Miami). Del Castillo opened the flood gates for the Gatemen yesterday with a 3-run home run and looked very comfortable behind the plate for it only being his second ever appearance in the CCBL.
On the mound for the Gatemen is Ian Bedell (Missouri). In Bedell’s sophomore season he was 1-1 with an ERA of 6.17 in 11.2 innings pitched
As for the Anglers, Daniel Federman (Miami) is starting. In Federman’s sophomore season he was 3-5 with an ERA of 3.51 in 48.2 innings pitched.
