BREWSTER, Mass. – University of Maryland baseball players Marty Costes and Nick Dunn helped the Brewster Whitecaps take home the Cape Cod Collegiate Baseball League title Sunday afternoon.
Brewster defeated the Bourne Braves in the three-game championship series with a 2-0 win in the decisive third game. Costes provided Brewster with a sac fly early in the contest and denied the Braves of runs in the eighth with a diving catch in left field with the bases loaded.
Dunn was named playoff co-MVP after batting .306 with seven runs scored and seven RBIs. For the summer, the junior hit .333 with seven doubles and 19 walks. It is the second consecutive summer Dunn has hit over .300 in the Cape after putting up a .311 mark last season.
Maryland has now had consecutive Cape League playoff MVPs after former Terp Kevin Smith took home the honor last summer. Vanderbilt is the only other school that has had consecutive Cape Cod League playoff MVPs.
For the playoffs, Costes batted .265 with two home runs and seven RBIs. He finished the summer with a .293 average, 23 RBIs and five home runs.
