The College of Staten Island baseball program started their campaign this weekend in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and after a four-game weekend set, two Dolphins were honored with distinctions from the CUNYAC. Anthony DiMarco was named the Conference’s Player of the Week, while pitcher Christian Capellan earned Pitcher of the Week honors.
DiMarco played in three of CSI’s four games this weekend and certainly did his damage at the plate and in the field. DiMarco boasted a .667 batting average, going 4-for-6 at the plate with a pair of RBI, a double and a homerun, and scored three runs. What’s more is that DiMarco drew four walks this weekend, loading his on-base percentage up to a hefty .818. On the field, the junior posted a pair of put-outs along with four assists as CSI went 2-1 in games that he played in.
One of those wins, against Mount Aloysius, came behind the arm of Christian Capellan, who tossed a seven-inning complete game for CSI in the second game on Saturday. Capellan gave up a run in the first inning, but settled down nicely and tossed the final six innings without allowing a run while finishing the game having given up just five hits, walking just two, while fanning six, lifting his record to 1-0.
The Dolphins will complete their six-game swing in South Carolina today with a pair of contests against the University of Valley Forge.
