Orleans defeats Yarmouth-Dennis (Orleans Wins Series)
Round Two, Game Two is upon the East, hosted by the Orleans Firebirds at Eldredge Park. In the third, an RBI double was seen for the Firebirds by Jo Oyama and Colin Tuft, which kept up the momentum of the game.

On the mound for the Firebirds was Jaden Winters, who ended in the 5th inning with 5 strikeouts and no runs earned before Jonathon Gonzalez took over. However, YD-Red Sox came back to life thanks to Ryan Jackson then followed by Hunter Hines who tied up the game.

That tie seemed to continue well into, however it did not last long. Orleans got back in the bottom of the eighth.

With Sean Matson closing on the mound, he shut down the game for the Firebirds up and ending the Y-D Red Sox 2023 season.

The final score of the Game Two series was 4-3, making the Orleans Firebirds the East Division Champions.

Bourne Braves Defeats Hyannis Harbor Hawks (Bourne Ties Series 1-1)
Bourne had quite a first inning. Kendall Diggs was seemingly the star of the game, getting the first RBI of the game and soon snowballing for the Braves. Getting 6 runs on the board by the bottom of the first only to be followed by back to back homeruns by Derek Bender and Garret Michel in the second.

The Braves could not cool down no matter how hard the Harbor Hawks fought, even after Brody Donay’s walk and Trey Lipsey's two RBI hits could not bring up the momentum.

The Braves tied the series up with a 13-3 win.
