The Harwich Mariners will host the Wareham Gatemen tonight at Whitehouse Field at 6:30pm. Wareham is looking to stop their losing skid while Harwich looks to get to .500 on the season.
The Gatemen will go with Jacob Cravey (Samford) on the mound tonight. Cravey enters the contest with one Cape Cod Baseball League appearance this season in which he went three innings and gave up two runs. He will look to log some innings and get deeper into the game tonight as the Gatemen arms are still recovering from three games in the previous two days.
Harwich is expected to start Carlson Reed (West Virginia) tonight. Reed fired five innings in his debut while allowing just one run in his first start. The tall righty started just four games for West Virginia and logged 40.1 innings while striking out 42.
Wareham’s bats have been somewhat cold during this losing streak. The team batting average has dipped back down to .206. Gatemen have struck out 86 times this season while walking just 41 times and homering twice. This lack of power and plate discipline is something Wareham hitters will look to improve on against Reed.
Harvey Shapiro’s club will look to get back on track and advance to 4-5-1 on the season while Harwich looks to get to 5-5 on the season.
