Brewster hosted the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox for the second time this week. When they played on Sunday, Brewster's offense was too much for the Red Sox to handle. The Whitecaps bats were again in force on Thursday, but YD's offense showed up too, getting a 10-8 road victory over Brewster.
The game didn't start as a slugfest though. The starting pitchers dueled sharply for the first half of the game. Brewster's Hunter Martin (Tennessee) and YD's William Montgomerie (UConn) provided strong outings and gave their teams a chance to win. Martin only gave up one run, a groundout RBI by Corey Dempster (USC) in the fourth. The rest of his 6.1 innings were an excellent display of his pitching talent. Montgomerie pitched well for YD as well, but had trouble getting Matt Davis (VCU) out. Davis gave Brewster a 2-1 lead in the 5th with his 3rd homer of the summer.
Brewster added two more runs in the 7th inning on a single by Logan Warmoth (North Carolina) and a double by Ryan Noda (Cincinnati). They took a 4-1 lead to the 8th, where the bullpen fell apart. Jacob Wloczewski (Binghamton) and Vince Arobio (Pacific) combined to allow 7 hits and 8 runs, including a home run by Kevin Smith (Maryland), and YD took a 9-4 lead. Brewster responded with another homer by Matt Davis to cut YD's lead to 9-7. YD and Brewster each got a run in the 9th inning, and Brewster could not mount a big enough attack to tie the game. YD escaped with a 10-8 victory.
With the loss, Brewster falls to 2-4 on the season and 2-2 at home. Jacob Wloczewski got the loss, and Collin Snyder (Vanderbilt) got his first victory. YD gets their first victory of the season, going to 1-5 on the season. The Whitecaps will take to the road to play Chatham tomorrow night at Veterans Field. First pitch is at 7.

The first three games of the Whitecaps season were not that close. They all saw someone pull away late. The Whitecaps hit the road tonight and they played their first close game of the season. They traveled off Cape to Spillane Field to take on the Wareham Gatemen, and played a tight and messy game. Brewster committed three errors and threw two wild pitches during the game, but their pitching still performed well.
Ryan Feltner (Ohio State) started the game for Brewster and only gave up one run through his first five innings. That run came in the second when Colton Burns (Cal Santa Barbara) reached on a Whitecap error and scored on a ground out by Jonathan Englemann (Michigan). Brewster recovered by turning to their hot offense. Nicholas Dunn (Maryland) drove in Kekai Rios (Hawaii) on a long double to tie the game in the fifth. Brewster then took the lead in the 6th when Ryan Noda (Cincinnati) tripled to open the inning and Zach Gahagan (North Carolina) drove him in with a single. Brewster had a chance to drive in another run, but missed the chance when Gahagan was thrown out at home to end the inning.
From there, Wareham's bullpen took over. Ryan Selmar (Maryland) pitched two strong innings in relief and collected the victory. Ryan Wilson (Pepperdine) pitched the final three innings and only allowed one hit, no runs, and struck out four batters, collecting a long save.
Wareham scratched out two runs in the 6th. Gavin Sheets (Wake Forest) drove in one run with a ground out to second, and Robert Metz (George Washington) scored on a wild pitch by Brewster reliever Jacob Wloczewski (Binghamton). Wislon shut down the Whitecaps the rest of the way, and the hottest offense in the Cape League was held to only two runs for the game.
