Cotuit made it a clean sweep as Kettleers’ left-handed pitcher Kevin Ziomek
(Vanderbilt) wowed spectators with performances in two games that earned him Coca Cola Pitcher of the Week. In last Sunday’s game against Bourne, Ziomek struck out nine Braves in six innings, leading Cotuit to a 7-4 victory over the Braves.
Ziomek, who is 2-0 with a sparkling 1.19 ERA, shined against Wareham when he posted six strikeouts in seven innings. His most impressive feat was getting out of a no-out, bases-loaded jam in the seventh inning, managing to pitch a strikeout, lineout to right and groundout to finish the inning with Cotuit’s 3-0 lead intact.
Ziomek, who hails from Amherst, Mass., is attending Vanderbilt and in 2012 pitched many important games. Included is a SEC tournament game against NCAA World Series finalist South Carolina and a career-best contest against San Diego, when he pitched eight shutout innings with eight strikeouts.
