CAPE ELIZABETH – Kyle Danielson got Cape Elizabeth rolling with a two-run double in the third inning and Cam Brown put the game away with a bases-loaded double in the fifth Wednesday as the Capers rolled over previously unbeaten Yarmouth 10-1 in a Western Maine Conference Class B baseball game.

After allowing seven runs to Wells in the top of the seventh inning Monday to lose 12-10, Cape Elizabeth (7-1) dealt out the pain on the Clippers (7-1), who were forced to use second-line pitchers because their front-liners needed rest.

The Clippers will get a chance for revenge at home next Wednesday.

With the wind blowing out at Holman Field, it took Cape two innings to get its offense going.

Danielson doubled in the gap in right-center, scoring Derek Roberts and Brown to make it 2-1.

Yarmouth scored its run in the third after two were out. Luke Pierce and Campbell Belisle Haley had back-to-back singles to make it 1-0.

Cape Elizabeth right-hander Rob Macdonald got stronger after that and was helped by two double plays.

“Rob Macdonald changed speeds and moved the ball up and down in the zone,” said Yarmouth Coach Marc Halsted.

“He was on today.”

Cape scored three runs in the fourth inning, four in the fifth and one in the sixth.

“It was just a matter of time before our offense got going,” said Macdonald, who improved to 3-0. “We were on the ball early.”

After scoring its run, Yarmouth only got one runner to second over the last four innings.

Bryce Snyder doubled to right in the fourth after Cape’s first double play. Macdonald got the next batter on a fly to left.

Macdonald retired the Clippers in order in the second, fifth and seventh.

“My teammates helped me in the field. They flashed some leather. My curveball became my out pitch,” he said.

Leading 2-1, Cape soon made it 5-1.

Chris Tinsman led off with a single. Pat Tyler bunted for a hit. The Clippers then turned a third-to-second-to-first double play with Tinsman scoring.

Ben Berman singled and Derek Roberts walked to keep the inning alive. After a balk by the Yarmouth pitcher, Brown and Jack Barber singled for two more runs.

Cape sent nine men to the plate in the fifth, scoring four runs.

With the bases loaded, Brown drove the ball over the left fielder’s head to the fence as three runs scored, making it 9-1.

Tyler had a sacrifice fly in the sixth.

“After losing to Wells, we knew we had to have a good game,” said Brown.

Cape’s first four batters in the game hit groundouts to the shortstop. Soon after, the Capers were on their way to a 10-run, 10-hit offense.
