Game 41 preview: Brewster at Harwich

Chatham’s recent losing slump continued Monday with its worst statistical loss of the season, a 11-0 rout of the A’s at home. A day later, the Anglers will play a doubleheader — a .1 p.m. game at Veterans Field with Brewster, another at Eldridge Park versus Orleans.

Monday’s loss came from shaky pitching following a 1-2-3 top half from Kolby Kubichek (Texas). Kubichek went out after an inning and Cole Ayers (State College of Florida) and Austin Vernon (North Carolina) Central both combined to allow 11 runs, nine of which were earned.

Since a stretch of eight wins in nine games concluded earlier this week, Chatham has been outscored 24-4 in its last three games while hitting .118 in 93 at-bats. 

Probable pitchers

Ty Madden (Texas) is expected to start game one of Tuesday’s doubleheader. The right-hander comes into game one with a 3.74 ERA in 21 innings of work. He’s averaged over a walk every two innings, but his last start on July 26 saw him throw four innings of one-run ball in a 6-2 win over Bourne.

Jeremy Wu-Yelland (Hawaii) will come in relief in the seven inning contest. Wu-Yelland, a lefty, has been a top relief option for manager Tom Holliday with his 1.50 ERA in his nine appearances. He’ll primarily work with his fastball and has allowed one run in his last 18 innings. 

Daniel Harper (Kentucky) is Tuesday’s starter for Brewster. Harper has one of the league’s worst ERAs with a 9.47 clip in 19 innings this season. His worst outing came on July 17 when he gave up nine earned runs in 2.2 innings. The right-hander has allowed a run in all six of his appearances for the Whitecaps.

Player to watch

Charlie Welch (St. John’s River State College) has five hits in his last four games, including one of Chatham’s four singles on Monday. Welch was reactivated on July 17 and has been a steady option for the Anglers behind the plate and in the box.

Stat to know — 4

Chatham needs four more points to clinch the top spot in the East Division. With two wins on Tuesday, the A’s can clinch the No. 1 seed, likely facing Harwich in the first round of the playoffs. 

Last time they played 

The A’s had a season-high four defensive errors in a 9-1 loss to the Whitecaps at Stony Brook Field. It was the only defeat in Chatham’s eight wins in nine games stretch.
