Shelby Miller named PCL Pitcher of the Week
Memphis Redbirds’ starting pitcher Shelby Miller has earned his second Pacific Coast League Pitcher of the Week honor this season.
Despite taking the loss, Miller scattered two runs on five hits with 12 strikeouts against Iowa on Aug. 21 and picked up the win versus Albuquerque on Aug. 26 as he allowed only one run on two hits with seven strikeouts at AutoZone Park.
Miller is 6-3 with a 3.40 ERA and 65 strikeouts over his past 10 appearances and he has only allowed a total of four walks in his past five August starts. His team-leading 151 strikeouts also ranks him second in the PCL, while he also currently leads the Redbirds in games/starts by a starting pitcher (26) and innings pitched (130.2).
