The Wareham Gatemen traveled to Doran Park to take on the Bourne Braves on Tuesday, July 19th. The Gatemen lost again to fall to 11-16-6 on the season.
Bourne jumped out to an early lead after scoring two in the 1st. Bryce Eblin (Alabama) led the inning off with a walk. Mac Horvath (North Carolina) stepped in and roped a two-run home run over the centerfield wall to make it 2-0.
The Braves tacked on another in the 2nd inning to extend the lead. Joshua Moylan (East Carolina) ripped a solo home run over the left centerfield wall to make it 3-0.
Wareham responded well in the top half of the 3rd inning. Chase Davis (Arizona) drew a walk and scored on a Max Anderson (Nebraska) RBI double. Anderson then scored on an RBI double off the bat of Blake Wright (Clemson) to make it 3-2.
Bourne then tacked on two more in the bottom of the 3rd to erase the ground that Wareham had gained. Eblin led off the inning with a single and advanced to third on a single off the bat of Horvath. Bourne then put on a play that sent Horvath to second with a stolen base and allowed Eblin to steal home on the throw down to second. Matt Shaw (Maryland) laced the third straight Bourne single to put runners on the corners. Christopher Brito (Rutgers) delivered with an RBI single to make it 5-2.
The Braves kept the ball rolling in the bottom half of the 6th inning. Brito extended their lead as he absolutely annihilated a baseball over the left field wall to make it 6-2.
Bourne tallied one more run in the bottom of the 8th inning off of a position player pitching. Evan Sleight (Rutgers) drew a walk before scoring on an RBI double by Carson Jones (Virginia Tech) to make it 7-2.
Wareham will be back in action on Wednesday, July 19th at Spillane Field as they take on the Chatham Anglers. The Gatemen desperately need a win to try and turn things around and even have a chance at the postseason.
