SanFranPreps.com Player of the Week: Ben Carasco, sophomore pitcher, Stuart Hall
Shortened game or not, Stuart Hall sophomore starting pitcher Ben Carasco didn’t allow a single hit on Tuesday.
Against Urban, Carasco struck out 11 and walked two in five innings of work, before the game was ended for the 10-run mercy rule. He also went 2-for-2 at the plate, with a double, triple, two RBIs and two runs scored.
Then in a marquee non-league matchup against Riordan on Saturday, he pitched six strong innings, striking out six, while allowing four unearned runs in a 5-4 loss.
