The Wareham Gatemen saw one win and one loss on their home turf this week.
After beating the Hyannis Harbor Hawks 4-2 in an away game on July 10, the Gatemen defeated the Harbor Hawks again at Spillane Field on Sunday, July 11, with an 11-run lead. The final score was 12-1.
Writing for the Gatemen, Barrett Hodgson said the Gatemen ran away with the game in the sixth inning — “Wareham exploded with a six-run inning,” he wrote, noting that Wareham batted around the order and left the 6th with a 9-0 lead over Hyannis. After a few walks in the eighth inning, the Harbor Hawks scored their first and only run of the game.
On Monday, July 12, Wareham fell to the Cotuit Kettleers 6-0. Barrett Hodgson, writing for the Gatemen, said the home game marked a faceoff between the Gatemen and Kettleers for the second seed in the west division. “Cotuit came out victorious and is now tied for 2nd in the west with Wareham,” Hodgson wrote.
Wareham’s third home game of the week — also against the Cotuit Kettleers — was played on July 14 after Wareham Week’s print deadline.
