Cortese led Tufts offensively in a weekend sweep of Bowdoin College which put the Jumbos at 5-1 in the NESCAC East. He went 5 for 9 in the series with six rbis and four runs scored. He was 3 for 3 with two rbis and two runs including the game-winner in Saturday's 7-6 walk-off victory. He then homered in each game of the double-header on Sunday as Tufts swept the Polar Bears. He hit one that tied game one (7 inn.) 4-4 in the fifth and then had a three-run, first-inning shot in the 16-0 game-two victory.
