Brewster, M.A 一 The Whitecaps face the Orleans Firebirds at Eldredge Park in a makeup game from last Saturday, with the first pitch at 6:30 pm.
Brian Fitzpatrick (Rutgers) is on the bump for the Whitecaps, making his fourth start of the season.
Fitzpatrick has essentially been flawless on the mound thus far, allowing no runs across 14 innings of work, and will make his first away start of the year.
In their last game against the Firebirds, the Caps suffered a 6-4 loss at home, and look to rebound from that loss as well as yesterday’s tie with the Mariners.
The Whitecaps offense has begun to show its potential, as they put 16 runs up against the Mariners on Sunday.
This Divisional matchup is an important one for Brewster since the Firebirds sit just one spot behind them in the East standings.
Keep an eye out for some more Fitzpatrick dominance on the mound, and a rebound performance for the Brewster bats.
