CHATHAM, Massachusetts (Thursday, July 15, 2010) – Y-D starter Michael Goodnight (Houston) allowed just four hits and an unearned run over 7.2 innings as he led the Red Sox to a 2-1 win over the Chatham Anglers at Veterans Field on Thursday night. He improved to 2-1 and fanned five in the winning decision.

The Red Sox are now four points behind Brewster in the East with a 17-10 record, while the Anglers fell to 12-14-1.

Goodnight and Anglers starter Logan Verrett (Baylor) treated the crowd to a great pitching duel, but the Sox broke through with their lone runs in the sixth inning. Right fielder Stuart Ijames (Louisville) singled to left field with one out to score third baseman Tyler Hanover (LSU) to give Y-D a 1-0 lead. The next batter, first baseman Jordan Ribera (Fresno State) drove home the second run when he hit into a long foul out in left field for the second out of the frame.

Verrett was pulled after the inning ended and took the loss to fall to 1-1. He allowed five hits and two runs over six innings, while walking one and fanning five.

The Anglers scored their only run of the game in the eighth when center fielder Brian Humphries (Pepperdine) doubled to right after Stephen Perez (Miami) was hit by a pitch with two outs.

Chatham’s Zack Jones (San Jose State) came in for relief and allowed just a hit over three innings, while Anthony Desclafani (Florida) earned his first save of the summer as he pitched 1.1 perfect innings.

On Friday, Chatham will travel to old-town rival Orleans, while Y-D hosts Brewster.

Cape League: July 14 Roundup

Posted by Joshua Kummins on July 15, 2010

FALMOUTH, Massachusetts (Wednesday, July 14, 2010) – Third baseman Mark Ginther (Oklahoma State) drove in two runs for Chatham, but it was not enough as the Anglers fell to the Falmouth Commodores, 3-2, at Arnie Allen Diamond on Wednesday. Due to the inclement weather earlier in the night, the game was delayed almost 40 minutes.

The Commodores improve to 12-14 with the win, while the Anglers fall below .500 to 12-13-1.

The Anglers took a 1-0 lead on an RBI groundout by Ginther in the sixth, but the Commodores scored two in the sixth and one in the eighth for the win.

Shortstop K.C. Serna drove home the first Falmouth run on a single to right, while he scored on a sacrifice by second baseman Kevin Medrano (Missouri State). Ginther was at the plate when the second run in the form of center fielder Beau Amaral (UCLA) in the eighth to tie the score.

A single by left fielder Nick Martini (Kansas State) in the eighth gave Falmouth a 3-2 lead, which would turn out to be the final count.

Kaleb Merck (TCU) got his first win of the season in relief as he pitched 1.2 innings, allowing just a hit and fanning four. Kevin Berry (New Orleans) took the defeat and fell to 1-4 as he allowed two hits and the winning run, despite fanning three.  

Both starters fared pretty well over six innings. Christian Jones (Oregon) allowed two hits, a run and four walks, while fanning seven for Falmouth. Chris Munnelly (North Carolina) allowed just three hits and two runs, while walking two and fanning four for Chatham.

All other games were postponed around the Cape: Harwich at Brewster, Bourne at Hyannis, and Wareham at Cotuit.

Cape League: No escaping the rain on first day

Posted by Joshua Kummins on July 14, 2010

Three of the four Cape Cod League games were postponed due to steady rain and field conditions on Wednesday.

Our featured game of the night at Stony Brook School between Route 124 rivals Brewster and Harwich was called after a scoreless first inning. Because of the inclement weather, CCBL pitching leader and Red Sox draft pick Anthony Ranaudo was pushed back one day and will now start on Thursday night when the Whitecaps host Falmouth at 5 p.m.

Wareham and Cotuit were called off from Lowell Park, while the Bourne/Hyannis contest was postponed at McKeon Park.

After a half-hour delay, Falmouth and Chatham were able to get underway at Arnie Allen Diamond (LIVE). Falmouth scored two runs in the sixth inning to take a 2-1 lead over the Anglers. 

Tomorrow, we will travel to Veterans Field where Chatham will host Y-D in an Eastern Division battle at 7 p.m. Logan Verrett (Baylor/1-0) will start for Chatham, while Michael Goodnight (Houston/1-1) toes the rubber for Y-D. Stay tuned for more from the Cape!

This is the big one! Today, we embark on our fifth annual Cape Cod Baseball League visit. We hope to stop at four games this week and report back to you on the best of the best in college baseball from all over the country.

If the weather cooperates, we will be at the Stony Brook Elementary School in Brewster where the East-leading Whitecaps host their Route 124 rivals Harwich Mariners. Brewster is 18-8 and in first place in the East, while Harwich is 13-13 and in third. Both teams have won seven of their last ten games. Red Sox draft pick Anthony Ranaudo (LSU) is set to take the ball for the Whitecaps at 2-0, while Harwich’s starter TBA.

On Thursday night, the Y-D Red Sox travel to Veterans Field to take on the Chatham Anglers in another East Division showdown. The Red Sox sit in second at 16-10, while Chatham is 12-12-1 and in fourth. Michael Goodnight (Houston) is scheduled to toe the rubber for Y-D, while Logan Verrett (Baylor) brings in a perfect 1-0 mark for Chatham.

Harwich travels to Cotuit for a Friday matchup against the Kettleers at picturesque Lowell Park. Cotuit stands at 11-12-2 in the West, which is third place. Pierce Johnson (Missouri State) is the probable starter for the Mariners at 2-0, while Brady Rogers (Arizona State) is 1-0 for the Kettleers.

Our final game will be at Eldredge Park in Orleans on Saturday night when the Firebirds host the Hyannis Harbor Hawks. Both teams are looking for a mid-season push in their respective divisions as they sit at 11-15. The Firebirds are in last in the East and the Hawks are fourth in the West.
