A pair of Nationals pitchers were named Pitcher of the Week for the week of June 11-17, as Alex Meyer won it for the South Atlantic League and Nathan Karns garnered the honor for the Carolina League.

Alex MeyerMeyer threw a rain-shortened six-inning shutout last Tuesday, giving up just two hits and a walk while setting down five on strikes. Yesterday, he whiffed a career-high nine batters but got the no-decision in the Suns’ 5-3 loss to the Power. The 22-year-old is 6-3 with a 3.33 ERA over 14 starts thus for Hagerstown.

Karns pitched just once during the timeframe, throwing six and 2/3rds scoreless innings last Friday in a 3-0 Potomac shutout of Myrtle Beach. He allowed just four hits and walked two while striking out 10, the second time he’s done that this season (May 26). The 24-year-old is 4-2 with two saves and a 2.51 ERA over 14 appearances (eight starts) for Hagerstown and Potomac.
