After a rock-solid outing at home and in Sioux Falls, Goldeyes starting pitcher Nick Hernandez earned a little league-wide love.

The American Association named Hernandez its pitcher of the week for last week, after he led the Fish to a 6-4 victory against the St. Paul Saints at Shaw Park last Tuesday, then helmed them to a thundering 14-0 shut-out victory over the Sioux Falls Canaries on Sunday. Between those two tilts, opposition batters only managed to bat for .132 against him, while he struck out 11 hitters at the plate.

With 10 wins on the season, Hernandez leads all Fish pitchers, and his 84 strikeouts are also the highest on the team. This is the second time he’s been named the league’s pitcher of the week. Meanwhile, Goldeyes southpaw Chris Salamida has also been twice awarded the honour.

The Goldeyes are set to open a three-game series tonight against the visiting New Jersey Jackals.
