Matt Andriese, Cotuit RHP
The final Coca Cola Pitcher of the Week is Cotuit’s Matt Andriese (Cal Riverside), who earned the honor after shutting down Y-D’s offensive juggernaut in the first game of the Cape League Championship Series.
After Cotuit watched Y-D score 36 runs in its two-game sweep of Orleans, Andriese asked to take the ball in the first game of the championship. He did not disappoint, holding the Cape’s most feared offense to a meager three hits in a complete-game shutout. Thanks in part to Andriese’s workhorse performance, Cotuit was finally able to hoist the Arnold Mycock Trophy after falling short as Western Division champs in 2008 and 2009.
