DANBURY, Conn. – Junior Pete Grasso, of the No. 11 Salisbury University baseball team, added another weekly award on Tuesday, as he was named the Eastern College Athletic Conference NCAA Division III South Pitcher of the Week, the organization announced.

Grasso helped lead the Sea Gulls to a 4-1 week, by tallying two wins and one save in those games. In his start against Marymount (Va.) University, Grasso threw 6 1/3 innings, while scattering three hits and allowing only one run. The run is the only one he has allowed in 13 2/3 innings of Capital Athletic Conference action.

His other win came in two scoreless innings of relief against the University of Mary Washington, and the save came in the second game of a doubleheader sweep at York College of Pennsylvania.

For the week, Grasso posted a 1.04 earned-run average to lead the team, while striking out seven in 8 2/3 innings.
