PITCHER OF THE WEEK - Anthony George
Philadelphia, PA (7M7AP): 7MICKEY7 announced today that Philadelphia starting pitcher Anthony George has been awarded Week 3's Pitcher of the Week.
As Philly's fourth starting pitcher in the rotation, George has been dominant in the past week. In his last four outings, George is 4-0 with a 2.67 ERA. He struck out 30 batters and walked only 14.
"George has been very solid in our fourth slot all season," Wings coach Bernard Mullin commented. "Though his win-loss record doesn't look so attractive, he has been pitching a solid ball all season."
Solid is right. George is 7-4 this season with a 3.10 ERA, and has held batters to a .239 batting average.
"In the fourth slot, you're hoping your pitcher can provide some solid innings and put the team in a good position to win," Mullin explained. "On any other team, Georgey would be second in the rotation."
Philadelphia will finish their series with Huntington tonight then hit the road to Monterrey to take on the Malditos (25-39).
