After a season defining victory on Friday night against Chatham, Brewster looked to start the final stretch of the season with a victory over the Falmouth Commodores at Arnie Allen Diamond. They put up a good fight, but the Commodores boast the best record in the League and showed their talent on Sunday night.
Most of the offense for both teams happened in the first inning. Nick Dunn (Maryland) singled in AJ Graffanino (Washington) to put Brewster ahead 1-0. Falmouth then answered in the bottom of the 1st with an RBI double by JJ Matijevic (Arizona) and an RBI single by Joshua Watson (Texas Christian). From there, the game turned into a duel of bullpens.
Erik Martinez (Cal Berkely) started the game for Brewster and did not last long. He pitched well, but gave way to the bullpen in the fourth inning. Falmouth starter Brady Singer (Florida) also started well but left after the fourth inning. The bullpens for both teams only gave up one run a piece. Falmouth got theirs in the 4th on a home run by Michael Cantu (Texas). Brewster got theirs in the 6th on AJ Graffanino's first home run since high school. That proved to be the last threat for Brewster.
The Whitecaps were retired in order in the 7th, 8th, and 9th innings by the efforts of Brett Gilchrist (Dallas Baptist), Stephen Villines (Kansas), and Corbin Martin (Texas A&M). Falmouth won 3-2 and Brewster maintained their place in the standings with Chatham losing to Hyannis. Brewster has an off day on Monday, then returns home to face the Wareham Gatemen at 5 PM on Tuesday.
