Offense Stifled In 5-1 Loss To Y-D


                   By AJ Spirito

FALMOUTH – Despite a quality performance from the pitching staff, the Commodores’ effort to climb to a .500 record was thwarted by the visiting Y-D Red Sox, losing 5-1 at Guv Fuller Field.

The duo of Bohm and Bechina were held to one hit as the Red Sox put a stranglehold on this Commodore lineup.

Y-D (6-1-1) starting pitcher Spencer Van Scoyoc had Falmouth (4-6) guessing all night, going 5.2 innings with five strikeouts and one earned run. That run came from Massachusetts’ own Cam O’Neill (Holy Cross) and would be all the Commodores could muster in this 2016 CCBL Championship rematch.

O’Neill has shown us he can play pretty much anywhere. Thursday night he played DH and homered and Friday he flashed the leather at third base while getting a hit and scoring the Dores’ only run.

Falmouth flamethrower Dalton Feeney (NC State) got the start for Falmouth and he did not pitch all that badly. Feeney went four innings, giving up three runs and striking out four. He walked three batters in the third inning but limited the Y-D damage to only two runs.

Second baseman Clayton Daniel (Jacksonville State) has been Mr. Reliable for Falmouth this season and that remained true in this contest. Daniel not only racked up a double off of Van Scoyoc but he also led the Commodore defense in the field, getting in a lot of work at second, providing a similar dependency to a familiar Boston figure, Dustin Pedroia (Both are smaller guys who pack a punch at the plate and put their heart and soul into every play on defense).

Speaking of the Commodores’ defense, they worked a clean game defensively, continuing a steady trend of locking down on errors as the season has progressed.

The Wareham Gatemen will be coming into Falmouth as the Commodores end their three-game home stand. Falmouth lost their last meeting with Wareham a week ago on a Gatemen 4-3 walk-off victory.

Taking the mound for Falmouth will be righty Kyle Bradish (New Mexico State) who delivered the Commodores their first victory last Sunday. Bradish pitched well in that game against Orleans, allowing one earned run and striking out five. If the Arizona native pitches like that again then the ‘Dores will be looking to pick up another win.
