Game 23 Preview: Chatham at Hyannis

Game 23 Preview: Chatham at Hyannis

The Chatham Anglers came a couple inches from tying their Friday game with Cotuit when Caeden Trenkle hit a double that bounced off the top of the wall and scored one run instead of two. The loss snapped their two-game win streak, but a six-run, 11-hit night showed continual signs of promise for a team collectively batting .200 as of Tuesday.

Despite an 11-game losing streak, the Hyannis Harbor Hawks have played some of their best baseball of the season as of late. Chatham manager Tom Holliday said last night that he expects to win when scoring six runs, but the Harbor Hawks scored double that number in a 15-12 loss to Harwich.

Probable Pitchers

Dylan Carmouche (Mississippi State) has pitched for the Anglers twice this season, but he’ll start for the first time against Hyannis. He’s allowed two runs in five innings, struck out seven and even took home the win against Bourne. He was used sparingly in his freshman season with the national-champion Bulldogs, pitching just 7.1 innings over nine appearances and never making an appearance over an inning. He allowed one total run and just six hits.

Mark Adamiak missed the entire 2021 season with Arkansas, but he’s back on the mound tonight for Hyannis. In six appearances so far this season, Adamiak has a 5.78 ERA while striking out nine. His best appearance came against Wareham, where he pitched four innings with just one earned run, keeping the Gatemen to four hits.

Chatham Players to Watch

Caeden Trenkle (Oklahoma State) not only nearly tied the game for the Anglers, but it was his second double of the day and fourth hit in three games. Chatham has struggled to hit left-handed pitching all year, but Trenkle, also a lefty, hit a single against Ross Dunn, Yarmouth-Dennis’ left-handed starter in the second plate appearance of the game to advance Danny Serretti, who scored later on a ground ball. Adamiak is right-handed, but Hyannis has a variety of lefties in their bullpen that could pitch tonight if needed.

Josh Rivera (Florida) continues his hot streak after a hit and run scored yesterday. He now has six hits in his last six games and 10 in his last 11. Since July 2, he’s picked his average up from .139 to .227, and his slugging percentage has jumped nearly .120 points.

Hyannis Players to Watch

Perhaps the biggest contributor to Hyannis’ recent offensive success is Clark Elliot, who hit a home run on the first pitch in the bottom of the first and has multiple hits in four straight games. Elliot’s .310 average leads the team by .055 points and his .826 OPS is one of the best in the West Division. Elliot’s season debut was against Chatham, where he went 0-for-5, but since his first Cape Cod Baseball League hit against Orleans on July 8, he’s gone 9-for-21 with two walks and two stolen bases.

Luke Mann has consistently been one of the Harbor Hawks’ best players all season, and two home runs in two games to go with three hits in each of his last two games solidifies his place in the heart of the Hyannis lineup. His slugging percentage has increased from .190 to .412 in the span of nine at bats, and his best stretch of the season directly correlates with Hyannis’ best stretch of the season.

Stat to Know — 19

In the first nine games of Hyannis’ losing streak, the Harbor Hawks scored 15 runs. They’ve scored 19 in the two games since, nearly taking down the league’s top team in Bourne and putting up double-digits against the Mariners, who are a half-game out of first in the East. Seven runs scored against Bourne tied their season-high — set in the second game of the season — and shattered it the next day with three home runs, two doubles and 15 hits against Harwich.

Last Time They Played

The Anglers offense seemed functional for the first time in several games, but the pitching staff was the main reason for success on July 5 in Hyannis. Eight straight shutout innings combined with 19 strikeouts from four pitchers, two of which have been offered contracts by the Dodgers since. Adam Tulloch extended his scoreless streak to 11 games, the fourth-longest in the league at the time, and the Harbor Hawks were held to three hits the entire night.
