Coming off the only 9 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, Gatemen LHP Brent Suter (Harvard) was named the CCBL Pitcher of the Week.
Suter is the 3rd 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 2, clinching, opening series win over the Bourne Braves; pitching 9 innings, allowing only 2 earned runs, striking out 8 and walking only 2 batters. Earlier in the week, Brent pitched 5 shutout innings against Falmouth; striking out 5 and allowing only 4 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 3 seasons for the Gatemen and was named a 2010 CCBL All-Star. Brent played the summer of 2010 in the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League was named one of the league’s top prospects.
On the Cape this season, like so many pitchers for Wareham, he has shown his flexiblity 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 5 starts and 10 total apperances.
A Cincinatti, Ohio native, Suter was a All-Ivy League performer. Click below to see Brent’s interview after the first round clinching game vs. Bourne.
