Butera Named CB360 Primetime Performer
March 29, 2012
Chestnut Hill, Mass. - Boston College freshman Blake Butera was named one of CB360 Primetime Performers for the sixth week of the 2012 college baseball season (March 19-25), as presented by CollegeBaseball360.com. The second baseman hit the game-winning, walk-off single in the Eagles' (10-14, 2-7 ACC) 4-3 victory over then-14th-ranked Georgia Tech on March 24.
With two outs, the bases loaded and the game tied, Butera came through, smacking a base hit through to right field to give the Eagles the win and the series clincher over the Yellow Jackets. He started the series with a 3-for-5 performance in BC's 15-7 win on March 23 and added a hit in the series finale, which the Eagles lost, 2-1. The Madisonville, La., native reached base eight times in the series and tallied nine hits during the team's 3-2 week, including a 3-for-5 effort in the 8-5 win at Bryant with an RBI, two runs and a double.
Butera is the second Boston College player to earn the CB360 honor this season as senior Anthony Melchionda garnered the accolades the first week of the season for his play in the Caravelle Resort Tournament in Conway, S.C.
The Eagles start a three-game series at home with ACC-foe Maryland on Friday, March 30 at 2:30 p.m.
