Gatemen celebrate 4th of July with America’s pastime

Jul 7, 2021

The Wareham Gatemen faced the Bourne Braves on July 4.

In their second game against the undefeated team, the Gatemen fell 4-0.

Writing for the Gatemen, Barrett Hodgson said the game was characterized by strong pitching: “Geoffery Gilbert started the game for the Gatemen. Gilbert went three scoreless innings while striking out six. Gordon Graceffo was dominant for the Braves going five scoreless frames. Graceffo worked ahead in the count all night, and gave up just three hits while striking out four.”

Neither team scored until the sixth inning, when the Braves pulled ahead before clinching it in the ninth inning.

The Gatemen are playing several home games this week: On Sunday, July 11, the team will play the Hyannis Harbor Hawks at 6:30 p.m. On Monday, the Gatemen will face the Cotuit Kettleers at 7 p.m., and will play the team again on July 14 at 6:45 p.m.
