The Harwich Mariners fell to the Cotuit Kettleers in two straight games in the Cape League Championships. After Cotuit won a 15-inning squeaker on Thursday, they beat Harwich 10-3 Friday afternoon to end the series and the season. The majority of Cotuit's hits were homers, which didn't set things up well for the visiting Mariners, who were only able to push two runs across in the fifth, the first w...

HARWICH/CHATHAM – It wasn't necessarily the way the Chatham Anglers wanted to end their 2019 season, but the game of baseball can be a fickle friend as the A's learned when they fell to Harwich in the first round of the playoffs. One run was all it took for the Mariners to defeat the Anglers on Aug. 2, thanks to a timely sacrifice fly hit by Chris Galland in the top of the sixth that brought home Hal Hughes. T...

HARWICH – The Harwich Mariners made it clear they want to be in the playoffs at the end of this week and are willing to work hard to get there, winning not one but two games against the Chatham Anglers, who at press time were holding tenuously to the top spot in the East, with Harwich determined to outlast Brewster for the last playoff spot in the division.

SOUTH YARMOUTH – The Chatham Anglers have been trading places for the top spot in the East Division with the Y-D Red Sox for a while now, but determination has kept the A's in the lead and served them well on July 12 when they battled to a 1-1 tie at Red Wilson Field.

Game 1 saw the Mariners plate the only two runs of the game in the second inning when catcher Patrick Winkel hit a single t...

ORLEANS – After trading the top spot in the East with the Orleans Firebirds in recent weeks, the Chatham Anglers made it clear on Monday night that they aim to hang onto it, as evidenced by some first-inning fireworks that led to a 6-1 victory at Eldredge Park.
