Hawks stay hot with 7-4 win over Falmouth

By Jim Hogan

Marc Brakeman (Stanford), who was named Coca-Cola Pitcher of the Week for his performance against Wareham last Tuesday, just made his case to win the award again this week.

Brakeman dominated the Falmouth Commodores over six innings, as the Harbor Hawks won, 7-4, at McKeon Park on Tuesday night.

In his six innings of work, Brakeman struck out nine and only walked one. He constantly pounded the strike zone and scattered just six hits during his scoreless outing. Brakeman’s start against Falmouth comes after another dominant performance when he dazzled Wareham to the tune of 11 strikeouts in six scoreless innings.

“I was just able to come out and throw all my stuff for strikes today. And luckily I’d get down in the count and I could get my way back into it throwing that changeup over the plate,” said Brakeman, who lowered his ERA to 2.18.
