Brewster got on the board with a Jesse Franklin solo homer in the fourth, then another solo shot from Ray Alejo in the fifth. Torkelson responded with his own solo homer in the bottom of the fifth to keep the four run lead. In the sixth, John Rave joined the solo home run trend, followed by a four-run seventh for Chatham thanks to a Blake Sabol solo homer, a Colin Simpson two-run shot, and a Rave double that scored one. Seeming to be easy sailing for Chatham for the rest of the game up 11-2, the Whitecaps created their own four-run inning in the ninth thanks to a Christopher Wright solo home run, an RBI single to center from Johnny Tuccillo, and a two-run single from Justin Ammons.

Wareham won the second game of the series in style to advance to the next round of the CCBL Playoffs. They jumped on Cotuit early, spotting three runs in the first inning with an RBI single from Drew Millas and a two-run single from Gian Martellini. Cotuit got one back after Michael Salvatore was able to cross on a wild pitch. Lael Lockhart Jr. added another run for the Gatemen with an RBI single, but Michael Toglia’s solo shot negated it for the Kettleers. In the fourth, Trey Jacobs blasted a three-run homer to take a 5-4 lead for Cotuit. The Gatemen tied it up after Austin Shenton homered. In the ninth, out of the blue, Wareham put up ten runs to put the game out of reach. Without the help of one error, the Gatemen scrapped together eight hits including four RBI singles, an RBI double, and an RBI triple. Jacobs was able to hit his second homer for Cotuit in the bottom of the ninth, but they still fell short nine runs of tying it up.

Yarmouth-Dennis (0-2): 2

The number one seed Y-D Red Sox were eliminated by the eight seed Brewster Whitecaps on Monday evening by a score of 12-2. Brewster was able to score in the first inning on a Conor Grammes RBI triple to take a 1-0 lead. In the third, Y-D used a sacrifice fly from Zach Zubia and a single from Nick Quintana to go take the 2-1 lead. The Whitecaps put up three runs in the seventh with two RBI singles from Ray Alejo and Grammes, followed up by Hunter Bishop scoring on a wild pitch. Brewster’s pitching did a great job to keep Y-D off the board and buy their offense time to put up runs, including eight runs that came in the eighth inning to put the game way out of reach. After being up 4-2 heading into the bottom of the eighth, five Brewster hits helped score eight runs and go up by ten on the Red Sox. The inning included four RBI singles and used a walk and wild pitch to score as well. Y-D could not answer, dropping their second game and being eliminated.

Falmouth (1-0): 2
Hyannis (0-1) 1

It was a close game in Hyannis as the Commodores and Harbor Hawks finally played their first playoff game after they could not play the last few days due to weather and field conditions. Monday they were able to play, and it was a good one. In the second, Logan Davidson blasted a solo shot to take the early 1-0 lead. Fast forward to the sixth where Cameron Cannon hit a fly ball to left field, deep enough to score Maverick Handley from third to take that 2-0 lead. Todd Lott singled to center to score Matthew Barefoot in the seventh, but that is the only run the Hawks could bring home, and that would be the last run of the ball game. Both teams recorded just ten hits combined, six for Falmouth, four for Hyannis.

Chatham (2-0): 8
Harwich (0-2): 6

Harwich had their back against the wall with a must win against the Anglers on Monday. They responded to the pressure with a five spot in the second inning thanks to RBI singles from Nate Eikhoff and Tanner Morris, a two-RBI double from Aaron Schunk, and Steven Passatempo taking home on a wild pitch. Chatham responded in the third and fourth, using an RBI single from Spencer Torkelson and another RBI single, scoring two, from Colin Simpson in the third, and a two-run single from Tristin English followed by a two-run double from Simpson in the fourth. This gave them a 7-5 lead heading into the fifth. Danny Casals singled to score a run for the Mariners in the sixth to bring them within one late in the game, but an error cost Harwich in the seventh, allowing a run to score. The Anglers were able to close it out and advance to the next round.
