Harbor Hawks end the Commodores win streak with a 6-3 win

By Annie Papadellis/WebReporter


FALMOUTH, Mass. – Hyannis continues to have the Commodores number as they take their third straight win against Falmouth this summer, yet this time in the regulated nine innings.

Despite three Harbor Hawks (9-4) errors and the fact that both teams had six hits on the night, the Commodores (9-6) couldn’t produce enough offense to top Hyannis.  Both teams were hitless over the first two innings, yet the Harbor Hawks were able to break out in the top of the third with a three run homer by Skyler Ewing (Rice) for his first home run this summer.

The Commodores answered in the third and fourth innings with two runs, but the Harbor Hawks countered with three runs in the sixth and seventh to secure a substantial four run lead.

Richie Martin Jr. (Florida) showed off his speed turning a routine single up the first baseline into a double.  Martin was able to score off an error by the second baseman in Leon Byrd Jr. (Rice) at bat to put Falmouth on the board in the third after Ewing’s three run homer.  In the fourth, Casey Gillaspie (Wichita State) decreased the deficit to one run with a lead off home run over the left field fence to make it 3-2.  However, the Harbor Hawks tacked on another run in the sixth and two more in the seventh with a two run homer by Tyler Spoon (Arkansas Fayetteville).

Falmouth tried to rally back in the ninth, with a RBI single by Joe Maggi (Arizona) to bring in Sam Gillikin (Auburn) to score.  However, the Commodores could not get the job done, leaving two runners on to end the game.

Starting pitcher John Means (West Virginia) had a tough outing on the mound as he was charged with his second loss of the summer.  He went five innings with six strikeouts and gave up three runs through Ewings three run shot.

The team will be heading to Fenway Park on July 1st for the Cape Cod Baseball League annual “Workout Day” where they will be allowed to show what they’ve got before MLB scouts.  The next game is scheduled for July 2nd home against the 7-7 Orleans Firebirds.  The first pitch is set for 6:30pm (EST).
