COCA COLA PITCHER OF THE WEEK: Brent Suter, Wareham LHP
Brent Suter (Harvard) is this week’s Coca Cola Pitcher of the Week after recording what might be the defining clutch pitching performance of this year’s playoffs. In Game 1 of Wareham’s opening round series at Bourne, the southpaw went the distance and surrendered only two runs. Suter struck out eight Braves in the 12-3 win.
In his other start this week, Suter threw five shutout innings in a no-decision versus Falmouth, scattering four hits and striking out five.
Suter is a junior at Harvard, where he was named first team All-Ivy as a sophomore.
COCA COLA PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Cody Keefer, Y-D OF
2011 Cape League All-Star Cody Keefer (UCLA) has been named this week’s Player of the Week. Ramsey has homered twice and driven in four runs in eight playoff at-bats to help Y-D sweep Orleans in the first round of the Cape League playoffs.
In the week leading up to the playoffs, Keefer failed to record a hit in only one game, and recorded multiple hits in two out of the four games.
Keefer is a sophomore at UCLA, where he batted over .300 in each of his two seasons as a Bruin. He was a 33rd round draft pick by the Detroit Tigers in the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft.
