Kantrovitz, Kutler Take Ivy Weekly HonorsFor the second straight week, Brown senior Dan Kantrovitz has been named Ivy League Player of the Week, and freshman Matt Kutler, following a torrid weekend of his own, has been named Ivy League Rookie of the Week.
Kantrovitz extended his hitting streak to 16 games last week, as he went 15-for-27 with six RBI and six runs scored and three doubles, batting at a .619 clip while striking out only once. He also handled all 29 chances in the field without an error and stole three bases as Brown took a two-game advantage in Rolfe Division play with a 4-0 weekend.
Kutler, meanwhile, has been a key figure as his Bears have opened the Ivy season with five wins in six games. He went six-for-10 in the sweep of Columbia and set a school record in the process with four doubles in the second game after scoring three times in the first game. He had also gone two-for-five with two RBI in a 16-0 win over Penn.
On Tuesday, Kutler continued his hot play, knocking in eight runs and going 4-5 against the Hartford Hawks, doubling once and hitting a three-run homer.
The Bears will take on Dartmouth this weekend at Aldrich-Dexter Field, in a pair of doubleheaders on Friday and Saturday, both beginning at noon.
