Chatham, Mass. — The Anglers (5-7) face the Bourne Braves (7-4) for the second time this season at Veterans Field tonight. Chatham previously fell to the Braves by a tally of 4-3 at Doran Park, Bourne June 15.
Sunday, the Anglers fell to Hyannis (5-6-1) 8-5 and 9-2 in a pair of contests at McKeon Park, Hyannis. Catcher Shea Langeliers (Baylor) led Chatham with 6 RBIs and four hits — including two home runs — for the day, but the team was unable to generate enough offense to claim a victory.
“Some of us our pressing and trying to do too much at the plate, and then we’re playing these other teams and they’re getting the soft hits,” Langeliers said. “For us to get a hit right now, it seems like you have to hit it at a hundred miles an hour.”
Starters Jacob Stevens (Boston College) and Austin Bergner (North Carolina) took the losses for Chatham. Stevens allowed allowed three earned runs with one strikeout over 3.0 innings in game one, before Bergner handed Hyannis one earned run with two strikeouts over just as many innings in the second contest.
