Whitecaps snap Anglers' home streak

Whitecaps snap Anglers' home streak

CHATHAM, Mass.— It is said that all good things must come to an end. The result on Saturday affirmed that sentiment for the Chatham Anglers, who saw their 10-game home winning streak against the Brewster Whitecaps end in a 3-0 loss. The last Brewster win on Chatham soil had been July 12, 2011.

“We just didn’t play very well tonight,” said Manager John Schiffner. “We just didn’t have it tonight.”

Dan Castano gave up one earned run in five innings on Saturday night. 

The train came off the rails early for the Anglers (9-7), and they never were able to make up the ground they lost. The Whitecaps (8-8) completed an unholy trinity, taking advantage of three Chatham throwing errors to score three runs in the first three innings.

“We handed them three runs early,” said Schiffner. “We didn’t play good defense.”

Dan Castano (Baylor) took the loss for the Anglers. He had trouble with location early on, but bounced back throughout the rest of the outing. 

“I tried to really limit walks. I had a couple early, I think just from nerves,” said Castano. “I just tried to settle in a little bit and focus my frustration on the batters instead of on myself.”

The big lefty finished with five strikeouts and two walks over five innings. The Whitecaps managed to plate three runs against him, but only one was earned.

Castano’s record slips to 0-2 after landing on the wrong side of the decision, but that statistic does not indicate the quality of his performances so far. The Austin, Texas native sports an ERA of 3.00 and a strikeout to walk tally of 13-7.

“I liked what he did coming back,” said Schiffner. “He didn’t throw particularly bad coming out, but I thought he could’ve been better. But then he came back his last two innings, and he really looked good.”

Brewster starter, J.D. Busfield (Loyola Marymount) collected the win. The right-hander struck out five over six scoreless innings.

“We’re sputtering right now on offense,” said Schiffner. “We’re doing some extra work with the guys, trying to get their confidence levels up.”

At the game’s end, the Angler offense had nothing to show for their three hits and four walks.

Though Chatham’s bats did not produce, the bullpen kept them within striking distance all night. Jonathan Teaney (San Diego) threw the sixth and seventh innings for the Anglers, allowing one hit and three walks while striking out two.

“He threw well except for the walks,” said Schiffner. “But his stuff is good enough that he worked himself out of trouble.”

 After Teaney, Chatham went back to a southpaw with James Mulry (Northeastern). He struck out five batters and did not allow a run in the final two innings.

“Outstanding, just outstanding,” said Schiffner of Mulry’s work.

Behind the plate, Nick Sciortino (Boston College) continued to demonstrate defensive excellence. The Angler catcher threw out two runners, and Brewster’s only stolen base came on a technicality—a wild pitch on which the runner had already been in motion.

“He’s got a real strong arm,” said Schiffner. “And he’s got a great release to go with it. He’s a good catcher.”


The Anglers next go on the road to play a 5 p.m. Sunday matchup against the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox. The projected pitching matchup features a pair of 2-0 aces. Parker Dunshee (Wake Forest) is expected to put his 1.63 ERA on the line for Chatham. Y-D is scheduled to counter with Ricky Thomas (Fresno State), who has a 0.77 ERA in 11.2 innings.
