WORCESTER -- WPI senior Dominic Fusco (North Haven, CT) was named to the D3baseball.com Team of the Week on Tuesday.
Fusco, who was also selected as the NEWMAC Pitcher of the Week, tossed four perfect innings and struck out 11 of the 12 batters he faced while earning the save in a trio of one-run games. He made his season debut with a save on Monday versus Waynesburg (PA) and then closed out both games of a doubleheader against Wentworth Wednesday. Fusco later finished the week on the mound for the Engineers where he struck out two of the final three batters of the trip.
Classmate Steven Gallagher was the most recent D3baseball.com honoree back in 2017 while it is believed Fusco is the first WPI pitcher to garner the accolade since the award began in 2012.
Baseball (9-1) is set to host Brandeis at 3:30pm Thursday at the New England Baseball Complex.
