The Commodores lose to the Bourne Braves

The Falmouth Commodores lost their third straight game on Thursday. Losing  to the Bourne Braves by a score of 4-1.  The Commodores continued to show an inability to string hits together, and never really threatened the Braves.

The Braves scored the first run of the matchup in the bottom of the first.  Three one out singles brought the first run across, and after one inning the score was 1-0.

In the top of the third inning the Commodores were able to tie up the ballgame.  A one out single from the designated hitter Tristan Gray (Rice) and a two out double from right fielder Heath Quinn (Samford) led to the run and a 1-1 tie.

The run to retake the lead came in the bottom of the third inning for the Braves.  With the bases loaded with one out, a sacrifice fly gave the Braves a 2-1 lead.

The game was scoreless for three full innings before the Braves put up a run in the seventh.  A lead off double was rewarded with a two out single to extend the Bourne lead to 3-1.

In the bottom of the eighth brought another Braves run.  A pair of base hits and a walk loaded the bases and a one out single between short and third scored the fourth run.  The 4-1 score continued through the end of the game.

The Commodores were able to manage eight hits, but were unable to put them together to form a credible threat.  The pitching proved to be sloppy in certain situations but they were solid for four scoreless innings.  Ben Ancheff (St. Thomas University) pitched two scoreless frames in the middle innings.

Even though the Commodores haven’t won a game in over a week, they are still in the playoff hunt.  They are currently one point ahead of the Cotuit Kettleers and managing to avoid that bottom seed that would end their season early.

The Commodores will try to get something going on Friday on the road against the best team in the league, the Orleans Firebirds.  For more information about the Commodores visit their website at
