Homer may look happy here, but he can't be too thrilled about the 9th inning 2-5 loss at home in Falmouth tonight (box score). There was impressive pitching on both sides with no earned runs until Wareham's comeback in the 9th. Gatemen starter Wade Miley (SE Louisana)fanned eight, and his offense allowed the only two runs of the night for Falmouth. The story of the night was Beamer Weems (Baylor),who pulled a Doug Mirabelli by arriving on the field early in the game (but not in a police car). He reportedly forgot his cleats and had to run back to his car to get them. In the 9th inning, Weems scored the 4th run of the night for the Gatemen. CodBall Conversation starPreston Claiborne (Tulane) was unfortunately the losing pitcher for the Falmouth Commodores.
Here is a short video I shot of Wade Miley pitching:
