Brewster, M.A. 一 The Brewster Whitecaps captured their 10th win of the season with a 16-5 victory over the Harwich Mariners on Sunday. 

The Caps looked like a different team against Harwich, with the offense being the driving force behind the win as they totaled a season-high 16 hits. 

“This is what we envision, I mean this team is certainly capable of putting up runs in bunches, so to see these guys come out and score a bunch is awesome, it gives us a little bit more hope,” Coach Shevchik said following the game.

The big hit of the day came from Carson DeMartini (Virginia Tech) who delivered his second home run of the summer with a three-run bomb to right-center. 

Brewster also received multi-hit performances from six players, one of them being Trevor Werner (Texas A&M).

Werner has already made an immediate impact on this Whitecaps team, with two-multi hit games in three appearances.

Werner is coming off a College World Series appearance with the Aggies, and will certainly be an important piece for the Whitecaps going forward.

“Just rolling from last season, I came off the road to Omaha and just went out there with some confidence,” Werner said. 

On the mound, Brewster’s pitching didn’t look as dominant as usual with Joe Mancini (Boston College) allowing five runs through 3⅔ innings. 

However, the bullpen recovered nicely with quality outings from Jackson Nezuh (Florida State), Colton Sundloff (Oklahoma), and Brennan Oxford (Wake Forest) who held the Mariners scoreless for the rest of the game. 

Coach also mentioned the importance of getting wins before the MLB Draft.

“After July 15th a lot of things can change in this league, depending who goes and who stays, our goal is to try to get as many as we can up until there and hopefully keep this team intact.”

On the 4th of July, the Whitecaps head over to Whitehouse Field to complete the home-and-home series against the Mariners, with the first pitch at 5:30 pm.
