As many of you know, the Cape Cod Baseball League is the premier college baseball summer league. They started up play a couple of weeks ago and since we were busy with 2011 College World Series coverage, I haven’t been able to update you on some of the current happenings in the league. Here is your update for the games on June 25th.
Harwich Mariners 8 Chatham Anglers 3
Northeastern LHP Andrew Leenhouts only gave up two hits in his four innings of work to pick up the win for Harwich. Leading the offense for the Mariners was LSU’s Jacoby Jones who went 2-3 with a run scored and an RBI. Chatham was led by Rollins College catcher Sean Reilly who went 3-3 with a run scored.
Falmouth Commodores 6 Hyannis Harbor Hawks 1
Falmouth starting pitcher Joe Bircher (Bradley) went six innings giving up only one hit while striking out nine to pick up the win over the first place Hyannis Harbor Hawks.
