BREWSTER, M.A.- The Whitecaps get right back in the win column, with a dominant win over Hyannis.
Tuesday night for the Whitecaps was a very forgetful night. They were dominated from start to finish by Falmouth. However, they were able to bounce back the very next day and dominate a team of their own. The Whitecaps beat the Harbor Hawks 12-0.
“The guys seemed rejuvenated today,” manager Jamie Shevchik said. “We had our season-high in hits and runs which is huge after a day like yesterday.”
The Whitecaps got things started early in the bottom of the second with Colin Davis (Wofford). He singled in two runs to give the Whitecaps the lead early on.
The Whitecaps then had a huge third inning scoring eight runs and going through 13 batters.
The first two runs of the inning came from Nick Biddison's (Virginia Tech) double. Nick had been struggling at the plate as of late and came through in a pinch-hitting role.
“I just stepped in the box and wasn't thinking about anything except to see the ball and hit the ball,” Biddison said.
Biddison then scored off of a wild pitch to make the score 5-0. The next two runs came from a base clearing triple by Jake Thompson (Oklahoma State) to make the game 7-0.
In the next at-bat, Zach Neto (Campbell) hit a two-run bomb over the centerfield fence.
The final run of the inning came from Dillon Carter (Texas Tech). He singled home Shawn Goosenberg (Northwestern) making the score 10-0, after only three innings .
The final runs of the game came from Will Simpson (Washington). Simpson hit a two-run home run in the same spot he had been robbed of one the night before.
"He left a pitch up in the zone, and I put a great swing on it and hit it out,” Simpson said.
Besides the offense, the Whitecaps pitchers dominated.
Starting pitcher Teddy McGraw (Wake Forest) went four innings, had three strikeouts, and only allowed two hits.
Ryan Cardona (Marist), Micheal Prosecky (Louisville), and Hunter Patteson (UCF) all came in relief and combined for four scoreless innings, five strikeouts, and no hits.
A win like this was huge for the Whitecaps. They will now head into a much-needed off day.
“Any off day when you start playing a bunch of games in a row is always much needed and a good thing,” manager Jamie Shevchik said.
The Whitecaps now (7-5-2) will have an off day tomorrow and then be back at home Friday at 5 p.m against Orleans.
