Thursday featured a full slate of games around the league.
Chatham at Brewster
Chatham’s pitching staff put together an incredible effort as three pitchers combined for a five-hit shutout.

The teams will switch home fields and play each other in the late game slot at 7:00 PM.
Cody Bradford (Baylor): 4.0, 0 R, 2 H, 6 K, 1 BB
John Rave (Illinois): 2-4, 2 RBI, R
Paul Witt (VCU): 2-3
Harwich at Hyannis
Hyannis was able to put together a big four run fifth inning to cruise to a 5-3 win over the Mariners Thursday evening. The Hawks’ bullpen was able to come together and hold off Harwich to just three runs and collectively striking out ten. The middle of the order for Harwich did most of the damage accounting for six of the teams ten hits, but it wasn’t enough for the win. Hyannis will travel to Cotuit for a 5:00 PM start and Harwich will host Y-D at 6:30 PM.
Danny Casals (Maine Orono): 2-4, 2 2B, 1 R, RBI
