A's host Whitecaps tonight

Chatham, Mass. — The Anglers (12-13) face the Brewster Whitecaps (12-12-1) for the fourth time this season at Veterans Field tonight. Chatham sits at a 1-2 record with the team, after suffering a pair of road losses 11-1 and 6-4 June 28 and 29, and claiming a 5-4 victory at home June 24. 

Last night, a two-run single and home run from Josh Stowers (Louisville) fueled the Anglers to a 10-4 defeat of the Cotuit Kettleers (14-10-1).

Stowers knocked in two on a bases-loaded single in the second inning, giving the Anglers a lead of one after Michael Toglia’s (California — Los Angeles) sacrifice fly plated a Kettleer in the first for the break.

Left fielder Jake Palomaki (Boston College), second baseman Josh Shaw (St. John’s) and center fielder Jacob Olson (South Carolina) kept the rally going with consecutive RBIs.

“We were able to take advantage of having runners in scoring position, and we came through with some clutch hits,” Stowers said. “Every time there was a runner on base, I felt like we got the job done.”

On the mound, relief pitchers Adam Wolf (Louisville) and Josiah Gray (Le Moyne) kept the Kettleers at bay, giving up just one run over 3.2 innings.

“They’re clean,” said manager John Schiffner. “They threw very well — well pitched, minimal pitches, we gave up one run between the two relievers. That’s a good job.”

Starter Jacob Stevens (Boston College) struck out three, allowing three earned runs over 3.1 innings work.

Tonight, righty Dan Hammer (Pittsburgh) will take the mound for Chatham. Hammer most recently took the team’s 4-3 loss to the Orleans Firebirds (16-9) July 4, allowing four earned runs with four strikeouts over four innings.

The Anglers’ batting lineup will face Whitecaps starter Tony Locey (Georgia) for the second time this season. Locey earned Brewster’s 11-1 Chatham sweep June 28, striking out seven over five scoreless innings.

Brewster enters the contest on a pair of losses. Last night, the Whitecaps were edged 2-1 by the Wareham Gatemen (11-13-1), after falling to the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox (14-10-1) 4-0 Monday.
