After pitching a rock-solid July, Goldeyes starter Chris Salamida earned the team's third player of the month honour.

Salamida went 2-0 with a 1.49 ERA in five starts last month, during which he struck out 33 batters at the plate while only walking six to first base. Opposing batters only mustered a .200 batting average against him, and only found a single home run off his arm.

On July 2, he snapped the Fish record for career strikeouts, passing Ace Walker's 380. Salamida now has 415 career strike-outs with the Fish.

Salamida follows shortstop Tyler Kuhn, who was named the Goldeyes' player of the month in May, and first baseman Casey Haerther, who earned the nod in June.

Meanwhile, the Fish are still on the road today, as they gear up to play tonight against the Sioux City Explorers. First up, the teams will finish off Tuesday night's game that was suspended due to rain, then they will play tonight's scheduled tilt, which will be shortened to seven innings. The Goldeyes come back home on Thursday to host the Wichita Wingnuts for four games.
