Gatemen Offense Comes Alive in Opening Day Rematch Against Harbor Hawks

The Wareham Gatemen bats certainly came alive in the second road game off the season at McKeon Park in Hyannis. With over 10 hits and 11 runs, the Gatemen easily secured a win on a chilly night on the Cape. 

The offense wasn’t carried by a few men with a hot bat, the entire lineup took part in the fun. Almost every starter for the Gatemen recorded at least a base hit, including right fielder Kellum Clark (Mississippi State) who had three doubles in three consecutive at bats. Clark would go 3 for 5 on the night and tally three RBI.

 “Our hitting was contagious in a bad way the last couple games but tonight everybody was hitting and it’s fun. We put up a bunch of runs. Pitchers did a good job. It’s fun when you win,” Clark said.

The Gatemen tossed around Harbor Hawks starting pitcher Jackson Baumeister (Florida State). The starter would record no outs, with two walks to begin the game, followed by three base hits and a double. The entire Gatemen starting lineup would bat in the 1st inning. 

The Harbor Hawks were held to five runs for the game, two of which would both be scored in the 3rd inning. The third run was scored in the sixth on a throwing error by shortstop Jack Housinger (Xavier). 

The Gatemen were consistent at the plate throughout all nine innings. While the pitching had less zone control than we’ve seen so far this season, the almost dozen runs by the offense more than made up for it. The Gatemen had multiple innings scoring three or more runs, which came in the 1st, 3rd and 5th innings.

The Gatemen will travel to Brewster tomorrow to face the Whitecaps as they meet for the first time this season. First pitch will be at 5:00pm at Stony Brook Field in Brewster.
