Major League scouts flock from Cape Cod after the All-Star break, while fans ready for next week’s slate of playoff ballgames. The setting was just fine for the visitors, who cruised to a 7-1 victory over the Cotuit Kettleers Tuesday...

Journeyman Davey on Verge of Capping Improbable Run to Pro Ball

By James Nahikian Blake Davey stood down the left-field line on July 27 at Doran Park. Reflective, confident and appreciative, Davey talked to a reporter prior to participating in the Cape League All-Star Game. He was soaking in the entire moment. Four years ago, he never could have dreamed that he’d be in his current position. He could have never fathomed being at the top of the college baseball food chain. “I guess I’m the...

Braves Shutout For Second Time All Summer, Lose to Y-D

By James Nahikian Box Score SOUTH YARMOUTH — It just wasn’t meant to be. Game No. 33 for the Braves — a contest in which they had scored eight runs against Y-D in the top of the first — was called due to rain before the half inning came to an end. The rain erased Bourne’s 8-0 lead, and turned game No. 33 into a game No. 36 loss. The Red Sox took advantage of the postponement to the tune of a 7-0 victory over...

Kmiec, Bourne Offense Lead Club to Third Straight Victory
