It was more of the same for the Gatemen on Friday, as they dropped their fifth straight game and the bats stayed quiet in a 3-1 loss to the Hyannis Harbor Hawks.
Wareham gave Brett Hanewich of Stanford the nod tonight, and he pitched decently, allowing 2 runs over four innings, his only big hiccup being on a home run to David Martinelli. Hanewich did walk three and threw 73 pitches, part of what led to his earlier than usual exit. After Hanewich came Grant Dyer, who allowed one run in 2.1 innings. Dyer gave way to hard throwing righty Zac Houston, who dazzled over 1.2 innings. That would seem like a fair enough pitching job to win the game, but thanks to a struggling offense, it wasn’t enough.
The Gatemen offense was given many opportunities by Hyannis starter Michael King to break through, but squandered every opportunity except for their fourth inning chance, when hot hitting Andrew Calica drove in a run with a single. Besides that, the Gatemen bats didn’t do much of anything in pressure spots.
The Gatemen will try to get off the losing track tomorrow when they throw Evan Hill against the Cotuit Kettleers in Wareham. Gametime is at 7pm.
