This time, it’s Brandon Sinnery (Winchester 2009), who was named pitcher of the week for the High-A California League while pitching for Visalia.
Here’s what milb.com’s Sam Dykstra wrote about Brandon’s week:
(1-0, 0.00 ERA, 1 G, 1 GS, 1 CG, 1 SHO, 9 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 HR, 0 HBP, 0 BB, 4 K)
Sinnery has been exactly what you want in terms of longevity from a starting pitcher of late. Entering last week, the 24-year-old right-hander had gone six innings or more in 12 of his last 13 outings. Then on Friday at San Jose, he went as far as he could possibly go, notching his third complete game and second shutout of the season. After posting a 5.51 ERA in 14 starts in the first half, Sinnery is ending the season in much better form with a 2.77 mark in 13 starts since the All-Star break.
Brandon has started another game since the complete game shutout, and gave up only 1 earned run in 6 innings. He’s really coming on! For the year now, Brandon is 14-7, 4.02, with a 1.29 WHIP, and 44 walks and 109 strikeouts in 170 1/3 innings pitched!
