COTUIT– On Sunday night, the Cotuit Kettleers outslugged the Hyannis Harbor Hawks, 14-8. Here are three takeaways from the game.
1. James Roberts
On a night when 16 of the 18 players from both teams had at least one hit, Roberts had the most. The shortstop from USC had four hits for the second straight game. On Sunday, he also had four RBI and scored twice. He raised his batting average to .333.
2. Cotuit’s Hit Parade
The Kettleers had 16 hits. Besides Roberts, four other Cotuit players had at least two hits and scored at least two runs: Adam Nelubowich (Washington State,) Daniel Aldrich (College of Charleston,) Jacob May (Coastal Carolina) and Mike Ford (Princeton.)
3. Effective Bullpen
Looking at the score, it’s hard to think there was solid pitching in this game. But after Hyannis scored seven runs in the second inning, Cotuit’s Dusty Isaacs (Georgia Tech) and Jordan Smith (Western Carolina) held the Harbor Hawks to just one run and four hits the rest of the way.
