CARY, N.C. – Coming off the only nine-inning complete game in the Cape Cod Baseball League this season in the series clinching game vs. Bourne in the first round of the playoffs, Wareham Gatemen LHP Brent Suter (Harvard) was named the CCBL Pitcher of the Week.
Suter (Cincinnati, Ohio ) is the third Wareham pitcher to be so honored this season following teammates Luke Farrell (Northwestern) and Josh Turley (Baylor).
The left-handed pitcher was on the mound for the game two, clinching, opening series win over the Bourne Braves; pitching nine innings, allowing only two earned runs, striking out eight and walking only two batters. Earlier in the week, Suter pitched five shutout innings against Falmouth; striking out five and allowing only four hits in the no-decision.
Suter is the latest of many Harvard Crimson to play for the Wareham Gatemen including Max Perlman, who pitched parts of three seasons for the Gatemen and was named a 2010 CCBL All-Star before being drafted this spring.
Suter played the summer of 2010 in the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League was named the league's top pitching prospect.
On the Cape this season, like so many pitchers for Wareham, Suter has shown his flexibility as he has been both a starting pitcher and contributing out of the bullpen when needed. He finished the 2011 CCBL regular season with a 2-3 record and a 3.96 era; making five starts and 10 total appearances.
