Game 12 preview: Cotuit at Chatham

Following a league-wide doubleheader slate yesterday, the Chatham Anglers (6-4-1) will host the Cotuit Kettleers (6-4) in a make-up game at Veterans Field. The contest was slated for Tuesday, June 18, but rain derailed the original date.

Chatham is coming off a split with Bourne. Game one featured two home runs, including a Jamal O’Guinn (USC) grand slam, but the A’s were scoreless in game two until the sixth inning in a 4-2 loss. Cotuit won its doubleheader with Brewster on Sunday by a combined score of 11-4. 

Probable pitchers

Parker Scott (Oklahoma State) will make his debut for the A’s on Monday and will start against the Kettleers. Scott began his redshirt sophomore season as a relief pitcher but was converted to a starter in April. The left-handed pitcher hoisted a 2.18 ERA in 45.1 innings this season. In his last start against Texas Tech on June 8, Scott had five strikeouts in six innings, allowing just two runs. 

Daniel Federman (Miami) is expected to come in relief after his first outing of the season came eight days ago. The righty allowed four runs on seven hits in three innings of work during last Sunday’s doubleheader at Wareham. 

RJ Dabovich (Arizona State) enters Monday having allowed only one run this season in four innings of work. The right-hander last pitched one frame against Brewster on Thursday, allowing his first run of the season on a hit and two walks before the game ended due to rain. 

Jackson Wolf (West Virginia) will start for the Kettleers. The 6-foot-7 left-handed pitcher will make his first appearance in nine days. Against Harwich, Wolf gave up two earned runs in four frames.

Players to watch

Spencer Torkelson (Arizona State) is averaging almost two RBIs a game in his short stint with the A’s. The outfielder has a hit in each of his four games, and he knocked a home run in both games of Sunday’s doubleheader. Torkelson is hitting .400 with seven RBIs and three walks in 13 plate appearances. 

Brady Smith (Florida) recorded his first pair of RBIs to open the Anglers offense in game one on Sunday — his single with the bases loaded started a six-run second inning. The catcher is 4-for-12 in five games this season. 

Stat to know — 14

Cotuit has the most power in the Cape League early this season with 14 home runs in just 10 games. The second highest total is Brewster, who has five less than the Kettleers. The A’s have seven home runs, including three from yesterday. 

Last time they played

Chatham had its largest comeback of the season in its second game. The A’s fell behind 4-0 and recovered to win 7-6, defeating the Kettleers at Lowell Park.
