Gatemen to Face Harwich in Second Double Header of the Season
After a promising start to begin last night’s game in Falmouth, the Wareham Gatemen fell apart in a disastrous 7th and 8th inning that would send them home with a 6-4 loss.
Today, they have the chance to put that loss behind them against the Harwich Mariners. Harwich will travel to Wareham this afternoon for a double header at Spillane Field. The Gatemen are currently last in the West Division, but with two wins tonight could jump significantly in the standings. The Mariners are not doing much better in the East Division where they are 4th.
Probable men on the mound for Wareham include Michael Sansone (Fairfield) for Game One and Jonathan Brand (Auburn) for Game Two. Sansone is 0-1 for the Gatemen this season, settling for no-decision on Opening Day, and a loss in the previous double header in Chatham after giving up a grand slam. Brand is also 0-1 on the season so far, with a 2.00 ERA, giving up six hits and two runs in his nine innings pitched for Wareham.
For Harwich, Liam Sullivan (Georgia) will get the start in Game One and Wyatt Scotti (Northeastern) for Game Two. Sullivan is 1-0 for the Mariners with six strikeouts in his 5.1 innings of work. Scotti, who is in his second year with Harwich, joins Sansone and Brand with a 0-1 record for the summer.
Game One begins at 4:00pm at Spillane Field with Game Two beginning 30 minutes after the final pitch of Game One.
