Mets stop skid with 6-3 win over Whitecaps

story from 8/1/01; posted on 8/2/01 at 11:47 EDT

--HYANNIS--The Mets finally picked up their first win in ten games with a 6-3 victory over the Brewster Whitecaps at McKeon Field.

Hyannis put the game away early on with a four-run second inning. A double by Brian Stavisky scored Jason Perry, who was hit by a pitch, and Ryan Garko, who reached on a fielding error. Stavisky would add another double in the fourth inning and score on a Mario Garza single for the fifth run of the game. Garza's groundout in the second accounted for his other RBI, on which Stavisky scored again. Cameron Coughlan had an infield hit in the second and eventually scored when the catcher's pickoff throw at third base flew into left field.

The win in the game went to Mets starter Travis Teeter (3-4). Teeter pitched six full innings, striking out seven while allowing one run on seven hits and a walk. Chris Cochran was dominant again in relief, striking out three of the four batters he faced in 1 1/3 innings to earn his first save of the year.

Brewster didn't get on the board until the sixth inning, when Mattt Carson led off with a single. Danny Matienzo followed with a hit, moving Carson to second, and a fielder's choice by Rich Wallace brought home Carson. In the eighth, Wallace legged out an infield hit to lead off the inning. He scored on a line single by Eric Swedberg. Jon Schuerholz, who also had an infield hit, was brought home on a sacrifice fly by Brian Barden.

The losing pitcher for Brewster was Walt Novosel (0-2), who went the first six innings. Novosel struck out six and walked one, allowing three earned runs (five total) on five hits. Mike Davern allowed four hits and one earned run in the final two innings, striking out two.

Ryan Barthelemy helped the Mets' offense later in the game, going 2-for-4 with two late singles and an RBI. His second hit in the seventh brought home Spencer Harris, who reached on a leadoff single to right field.

Stats of note...the Whitecaps had twelve hits, but no extra-base hits...the Whitecaps also stranded twelve runners, seven in scoring position...the Met snow have two home games (Bourne and Y-D) and two away games (Chatham and Cotuit) remaining.

Perry beats up on Braves, Mets edge out Bourne 5-4

story from 8/2/01; posted on 8/3/01 at 12:41 EDT

--HYANNIS--The Mets settled back into the win column with a 5-4 victory over the Bourne Braves at McKeon Field. It was Hyannis' second win in a row coming off that infamous nine-game skid.

Jason Perry had another big day against Bourne, going 2-for-3 with a walk, two runs, and three RBI. He hit his eighth homer of the season in the fourth inning, sending the solo shot out in right field to lead the league in that category by three. In the eighth inning with the Mets trailing 4-3, Perry hit a double down the right-field line that scored Brian Stavisky from second and Cameron Coughlan (2-for-4) from first for the tying and go-ahead runs.

The Mets' first run came when Perry walked with two outs. A single by starting first baseman Eric Maycroft moved Perry to second, and designated hitter Justin Taylor had an RBI single to bring Perry home. Taylor, making a different kind of start in between his pitching outings, went 2-for-4 on the game. His .500 average is now second on the team to that of Maycroft, who was pulled in the third after compiling a 1.000!

The win for the Mets went to the bullpen and Chris Cochran (1-0). Cochran pitched the eighth and was in line for the loss before the scoring in the bottom of the inning; he allowed one run on two hits. Tom Kandybowicz made his first relief appearance of the season in the perfect ninth inning and picked up the save. Starter David Humen went seven innings for the Mets, allowing three earned runs on eight hits and four walks while striking out five.

Casey Shumaker, Bourne's final pitcher, got the loss for the Braves to drop to 5-2. He allowed the two fatal runs on two hits. Starter Mike Dennison, making his first start in a league-best 29 appearances, struck out four and allowed three earned runs on seven hits in six innings. Tyler Fitch pitched a scoreless seventh for the Braves.

Bourne and Hyannis each had ten hits. Leading Bourne's offense was Brian Burgamy, who went 2-for-5 with three RBI. In the second, he hit a single that scored Conor Jackson and Brian Anderson, who each walked to lead off the inning. Will Hudson went 3-for-4 with a run, when he was batted in by Burgamy in the eighth.

Rounding out the Mets' ten hits was Mike Brown, who had two singles, and Kyle Frank, who led off the game with a hit and scored in the fifth inning.

Stats of note...for the second straight game, the Mets have held the opposition without an extra-base hit...some of Perry's staggering stats against Bourne this year: in six games, he batted .474 with three home runs, a double, a triple, seven RBI, nine hits, an .565 on-base percentage, and a 1.000 slugging percentage...the Mets' opposition has also stranded twelve runners for the second straight game.

Ool strong through six, A's stronger in seventh

story from 8/3/01; posted on 8/3/01 at 11:58 EDT

--CHATHAM--The Mets and A's boasted pitching staffs that combined for 25 strikeouts, but the A's picked up one more run in a 2-1 victory over Hyannis that puts them alone in first place in the East Division.

For the first six innings, Kevin Ool had one of the most dominant outings of the year for a Mets pitcher. He retired the first ten batters he faced, allowing only one hit and one walk through six, and topped twenty pitches in only one inning. He finished with eleven strikeouts and four hits through seven innings. Chatham would tag him for two runs in the seventh, however, and he got Hyannis' loss to fall to 2-3 on the season.

Chatham got their two leadoff batters on base in the seventh, when Bobby Malek bunted his way on and John Schneider singled into center. A sacrifice bunt moved them into scoring position, and a double to right by Michael Moon brought them both home. Hits also came from Michael McCoy and Drew Meyer.

Reliever Corey Hamman (5-2) was the winner for the A's after throwing three hitless innings. He struck out three and walked none. Starter Ben Clayton went four innings, allowing the lone run on three hits and a walk while striking out four. Fireballer David Bush allowed a double in the eighth but struck out two, and Zane Carlson got his twelfth save by striking out the side in the ninth, allowing only a single.

The run for the Mets was scored in the second inning, when Jason Perry was hit by a pitch. He stole second and went to third when the throw went into center field, and scored on a double by Cameron Coughlan. Ryan Barthelemy was 2-for-4 with two singles, and Nick Bland had an eighth-inning double. Ryan Garko had a single in the ninth, but his pinch runner (Mario Garza) was stranded at second base.

Tom Kandyowicz pitched one inning of relief for the second straight day, striking out two and letting up one hit.

Stats of note...Ool's first three strikeouts came on three pitches...no Chatham runner made it into scoring position until the sixth inning...in yesterday's game, each team had ten hits; today, the two teams had five hits apiece.

Mets manufacture seven runs in win over Y-D

story from 8/4/01; posted on 8/4/01 at 23:40 EDT

--HYANNIS--The Hyannis Mets picked up their third win in four games by beating the Y-D Red Sox 7-5 at McKeon Field.

Most of the Mets' runs scored in the third inning, when they sent ten batters to the plate and brought six of them home. Cameron Coughlan had a double to start that inning and scored after a Mario Garza sacrifice and a Spencer Harris single. Ryan Garko was struck with a pitch with the bases loaded for an RBI, and Jason Perry followed with a three-run double to left field. They added a run in the fifth, when Coughlan's sacrifice fly scored Ryan Barthelemy (2-for-3).

The Sox outhit Hyannis 11-8, and had three multiple hitters. Steve Sollmann went 2-for-3 with a double, Matthew Boggs had a pair of RBI singles, and Hyung Cho scored a run while going 2-for-3. Paul O'Toole had a two-RBI single that capped Y-D's three-run fourth inning.

Chris Cochran (2-0) was Hyannis' winning pitcher, allowing five hits for one earned run through 4 2/3 innings. He struck out three and walked two. Starting on the mound for the Mets was Justin Taylor, who went 3 1/3 innings and gave up six hits for four runs (three earned).

The loss went to Y-D starter Jesse Carlson, who allowed six earned run through 2 1/3 innings. Issac Pavlik did well in three scoreless relief innings, allowing only two hits and striking out three.

Stats of note...Ryan Garko was hit by three pitches in the game, tying the Cape League record...the game was shortened to 7 1/2 innings because of darkness...neither starter could have qualified for the win, since a starter in a game shorter than eight innings must pitch at least four innings to get the win.

Hyannis falls to Cotuit, 8-5, to end 2001 season

story from 8/5/01; posted on 8/6/01 at 15:19 EDT

--COTUIT--The Mets lost their last game of the season to Cotuit at Lowell Park, losing 8-5 to the Kettleers to finish 3-2 in August and 12-27 on the season.

Leading Cotuit's twelve-hit offense was first baseman Bill Peavey, who had a solo homer and two doubles, finishing 3-for-5 with 3 RBI. Alberto Concepcion had a two-run homer in the fourth, his second of the season. Brent Metheny drove in two runs on a second-inning single. Two singles apiece also came from Todd Friedman and Chris Hall.

Ryan Combs (2-3) was the winner for Cotuit, pitching a dominant 6 1/3 innings in which he allowed only one hit and two unearned runs. He had a perfect game through five innings, and ended with two strikeouts and only 67 pitches.

Spencer Harris, who had Hyannis' first hit, ended up 2-for-3 on the day with two runs and one RBI. He drove in the run in the ninth inning, scored by Brian Stavisky after Stavisky reached on a leadoff single. Ryan Garko drove in a run in the eighth on a two-out single, but was one of two Hyannis runners thrown out at the plate by left fielder Concepcion. Nick Bland rounded out the Mets' five hits with a pinch-hit double in the eighth inning.

Tom Kandybowicz, Hyannis' starter, got the loss to fall to 3-4 on the season. Cotuit, who had seen Kandybowicz in four previous starts, figured him out this time around, tagging him for five earned runs and eight hits. The Mets' bullpen quieted Cotuit's bats after a while, getting scoreless outings from Jim Hoey, David Humen, Kyle Frank, and Travis Teeter. Frank pitched to fellow Clemson Tiger Zane Green in the eighth, coming in from left field and getting a ground out on one pitch.

Stats of note...Cotuit scored all of its runs between the first and fifth innings, and Hyannis scored all of its runs between the sixth and ninth innings...the final four Hyannis pitchers combined on three perfect innings with two strikeouts and only one ball out of the infield...Green, Cotuit's leadoff batter, went 0-for-5 with two strikeouts, stranding eight runners.
