Manhattan College freshman pitcher Michael Scarinci of Nanuet earned his second MAAC rookie of the week award, becoming the only player to be a repeat winner this season. Scarinci, a Pearl River High School alum, delivered a two-hitter on Sunday that helped lift Manhattan to a 7-0 victory at Canisius and clinch the MAAC series.
Scarinci carried a perfect game into the sixth inning as he sat down 15 batters in order. He finished with four strikeouts en route to his first career shutout. Scarinci faced the minimum 21 batters and did not allow the Golden Griffs to reach second base. Two infield singles in the sixth and seventh innings were the only blemish on his stat line. The right hander from Nanuet, N.Y. forced Canisius into 13 ground outs, two double plays and he did not walk a batter. With the win, Scarinci improved to 3-1 in MAAC contests.
