The Bourne Braves visited Spillane Field on Sunday, July 3rd to take on their division rivals, the Wareham Gatemen. The two rivals tied at 2-2 meaning they each gained one point in the standings.
Wareham got the offense going in the bottom of the 1st inning scoring two runs. Jack Housinger (Xavier) ripped a single into right to get things started for the Gatemen offense. Hogan Windish (UNC Greensboro) kept his all-star campaign going, ripping an RBI double in the right-center gap. Ryan Campos (Arizona St.) stayed hot as well, lacing an RBI single down the third base line to put the Gatemen up 2-0.
Bourne responded right back in the top half of the 2nd inning. Christopher Brito (Rutgers) reached on an infield single to give the Braves a base runner. His teammate in college Evan Sleight (Rutgers) hit a two-run home run that scored both of the Scarlet Knights tying the game up 2-2.
Michael Sansone (Fairfield) was great in his five innings of work. He allowed two runs on just four hits and controlled the zone extremely well. Sansone had a season high seven strikeouts against Bourne.
Wareham is back in action taking on Bourne again on Monday, July 4th at Doran Park. Both squads are searching for a much-needed win as Falmouth inches closer to them both in the standings.
