Pitcher of the Day

This is getting redundant! For the third time this season, our pitcher of the day is Front Royal’s Erne Valdes, from St.Erne Valdez St Thomas Thomas! Also the POD on June 3rd and June 24th, Erne threw 6 shutout, no-hit innings against Woodstock last night, didn’t walk anyone, and struck out 12. He didn’t get the win, as his bullpen let him down, but his game score of 84 is the highest since Sam Vincenzo’s start on June 15th. Through 5 starts this summer, Erne is 2-1, 0.91, with 14 hits, 9 walks, and 39 strikeouts in 29 2/3 innings pitched. Whoa.
