SOUTH YARMOUTH, Mass. ? The Y-D Red Sox offense produced a season high seven runs highlighted by their first home run of the season in a 7-7 tie with the Brewster Whitecaps Tuesday evening at Red Wilson Field.
It took no time for the Red Sox offense to get things rolling on the offensive side as Y-D plated three runs in the bottom of the first inning and another three in the bottom of the third.
Carlos Cortes, who is hitting a hefty .474 through the first five games of the season, smacked the fifth pitch of a fourth inning at-bat to straight away center clearing the fence for the seventh and final Red Sox run. The home run is the first one by a Y-D batter this season.
The Red Sox were aggressive on the basepaths stealing five bases in the contest, with Kyle Isbel swiping two. However, they left nine runners in scoring position.
Hogan Harris made his season debut on the mound for Y-D and went four innings allowing one run on three hits and a walk while striking out six Whitecap hitters.
Brewster attacked the Red Sox bullpen for six runs capped by a five run sixth inning. Karl Blum was the most effective Y-D reliever Tuesday evening as he struck out six in a scoreless 2.1 innings of work. Brandon Nail also pitched a scoreless frame in the ninth.
The game started at 5:00 p.m. but was called due to darkness three-and-a-half hours later around 8:30.
The Red Sox (3-1-1) look to get back in the win column Wednesday evening when they host the Chatham Anglers for a 5:00 p.m. first pitch.
