The Harwich Mariners put Game 1 of the Championship series away early with explosive 2nd and 3rd innings. Jason Stidham (Florida State) drove in a total of 6 runs to give him the early bid on MVP. The Kettleers didn't get on the board till the 7th inning when Robert Stock (USC) hit a 2-run homerun off starter Mike Morrison (Cal State Fullerton) to make it 11-2. Morrison otherwise had a strong game and earned the win. Cape League Insider did a nice job today with live updates.
The Kettleers will look to force a Game 3 with a win tomorrow at Whitehouse Field. Kickoff is at 7pm, but I would make sure to get there early, as the work crowd will have a chance to see this one. Weather.com is still showing a 30% chance of showers throughout the day.
