Cutrone receives Association of Division III Independents baseball Player of the Week award

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – St. Joseph's College (Brooklyn) junior second baseman/pitcher Chris Cutrone (Levittown, N.Y.) has been named the Association of Division III Independents baseball Player of the Week. Cutrone pitched another gem for St. Joseph's, this time one of the 10-inning variety against SUNY-Canton on Saturday. The ten innings were the most ever thrown by a Bear and was the righthander's second complete game of the season. The junior was lights out surrendering only one run on eight hits, while striking out five to help the Bears secure a 2-1 walk-off win against their USCAA counterparts. Despite throwing 123 pitches on the day, the second baseman/pitcher did not allow a Roo to reach base in each of the last four innings to keep St. Joseph's in the game. The junior also contributed at the plate this week, going 5-for-10 with two runs and an RBI. The now two-time Player of the Week improved to 4-1 on the mound this season and has a 3.63 ERA.
