Opening Day for the Sag Harbor Whalers of the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League (HCBL) took place Sunday afternoon under glorious sunny skies at Mashashimuet Park. The Whalers knocked off the visiting Southampton Breakers, 8-3, with Duke Jordan (LSU – Eunice) tossing four innings to pick up the win. His collegiate teammate at Eunice, outfielder River Town, led the Whalers at the plate, going 4-for-5 with two RBIs and a run scored. Catcher Matt Stone (Georgetown) had three hits and Peter Marren (Bucknell) had two. The Whalers will play three more games early this week and will host the North Fork Ospreys on Friday, June 7, at 5 p.m. before traveling to Bellport High School to face the Long Island Road Warriors in a doubleheader on Saturday. The team returns home to face the Riverhead Tomcats on Sunday at 5 p.m.
