Mississippi Braves starter Ryne Reynoso was named the Southern League’s Pitcher of the Week after going 2-0 and posting an ERA of 0.57 last week.
The following is from the Southern League’s release:
“Reynoso was a workhorse for Mississippi last week, pitching a league-high 15.2 innings in two dominant victories. On June 23, Reynoso bested league wins leader Lucas Harrell by yielding just three hits in eight scoreless innings as the Braves downed Birmingham 6-1.
“He was nearly as dominant in his next start, striking out six and allowing one earned run in seven and two-thirds innings in a 6-3 win over West Tenn on June 28. The consecutive victories have pushed Reynoso’s season record to 5-4, and the Bellevue, Id., native currently sports a 3.31 ERA, which ranks tenth in the league.
“After a rocky start to the 2009 campaign, Reynoso has allowed more than three earned runs in just one of 10 starts since May 5.”
