BOURNE, Mass. – The Falmouth Commodores displayed dominant pitching and timely hitting in their 4-2 win over the Bourne Braves, on Wednesday night. The victory against the West Division leaders snaps the club’s five-game losing streak.
The Commodores’ pitching staff was outstanding, allowing just one run and five hits. Jack Jasiak was dealing, striking out six batters in six scoreless innings of work. Chase Jeter impressed out of the bullpen, recording the save by holding Bourne to just two runs in three frames.
Manager Jeff Trundy said that he was impressed with the performances of Jasiak and Jeter.
“They were just absolutely awesome with their efforts on the mound,” Trundy said. “They put us in a great position to win.”
Falmouth’s bats got the job done, recording four runs and six hits. Anthony Hall had a big night at the plate, going 2-for-4 with two RBIs. Kodie Kolden hit the only long ball of the game, in a 1-for-4 performance.
The ‘Dores posted their first hit of the night in the fourth inning, on a booming ground-rule double to left field by Anthony DeFabbia. The right-handed slugger is traditionally a hurler for the club.
The Commodores opened the scoring in the top of the fifth inning, plating a pair of runs to take a 2-0 lead over the Braves. Jace Bohrofen got the club on the board by bringing home Doug Hodo with a fielder’s choice. Hall followed this by lining an RBI single to right field, driving in Bohrofen.
Kolden put the ‘Dores up 3-0 in the sixth inning, launching a solo jack over the left field fence. The blast marks the Washington State product’s second home run of the summer.
The Braves broke their offensive silence in the bottom of the seventh inning, trimming their deficit to 3-1 on a sacrifice fly to center field by Tanner Schobel.
Falmouth tacked on an insurance run in the ninth inning, extending its lead to 4-1 over Bourne. Hall cranked an RBI double into the right-center field gap, plating Kris Armstrong.
The Braves attempted to rally in the bottom half of the inning, cutting their deficit to 4-2 on an RBI infield single by Joe Lampe. This would hold as the final score, as Jeter would retire the next batter to secure the victory for the ‘Dores.
Hall said that he believes that this win can help the club return to its winning ways.
“[It] just gets the confidence up a little bit and gets us rolling,” Hall said. “It’s a big one.”
The victory improves the club’s record to 9-13-2 on the summer. The Commodores will return to action against the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox on July 23 at 6 p.m., from Guv Fuller Field.
