BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (WBNG) - Binghamton Rumble Ponies pitcher Joander Suarez has been named the Eastern League Pitcher of the Week for August 28 - September 3.
The right-hander threw six no-hit innings on Thursday night against the Harrisburg Senators. It was his Double-A debut as he allowed just one baserunner and struck out six batters to pick up the win.
