With Chatham’s Ben Hampton dominating through the first four innings Friday night, Taylor did the same for the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox. He matched Hampton out-for-out until, finally, the Sox made a breakthrough. Jonny Long’s two-run homer in the top of the fifth broke the deadlock, and the Red Sox cruised to a 4-1 win over the Chatham Anglers at Veterans Field.
The Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox battled back from 2-0 and 4-3 deficits to take a 6-4 lead into the sixth inning, and although they allowed the Harwich Mariners to tie the game in the sixth, they held on to secure a 6-6 tie with the Mariners Friday night at Red Wilson Field. The game was called after seven innings due to darkness.
