The Wareham Gatemen is visiting Veterans Field tonight to take on the Chatham Anglers in a doubleheader. The Gatemen look to get back into the win column after a 12-9 loss to Falmouth on Saturday.
Michael Sansone (Fairfield) is expected to get the ball in game one tonight. Sansone dazzled in his first Cape Cod Baseball League start in 2022, striking out six batters across just 52 pitches. The lefty likes to work ahead in the count so look for him to pound the strike zone early.
The Gatemen bats have awakened in recent games with the team batting average skyrocketing from .126 all the way up to .232. Hogan Windish (UNC Greensboro) leads the team in hits with eighth and RBIs with five. Jack Housinger (Xavier) has walked seven times and has been an on base machine for the Gatemen.
Wareham has not attempted to steal a base yet this season. Watch for manager Harvey Shapiro to try and get some guys moving on the pitch while on the base paths.
With both teams searching for two wins tonight the Gatemen have the chance to jump to 5-2-1. The Anglers could potentially get to 3-3-1 with a pair of wins in tonight’s action. For complete game notes click here.
