Voth “Defends” C.L. Pitcher of the Week Title

Potomac Nationals pitcher Austin Voth has been named the Carolina League’s Pitcher of the Week for the second straight week.

As he did the week prior, Voth tossed seven scoreless innings with one walk and eight K’s on the 18th but went one better with only one hit allowed versus two. He retired the last 16 batters he faced.

Unfortunately, the effort did not result in a win as Voth matched up against Wilmington’s Jonathan Dziedzic, who matched him goose egg for goose egg on the scoreboard and also got a no-decision for his efforts. The P-Nats ultimately lost the game, 3-0.

In five starts since his callup from Hagerstown, the 22-y.o. “northpaw” has turned in a quality start each time out with just a single run allowed on home run on June 29th and 36 strikeouts over 33 innings pitched. Between the two levels, Voth is 6-3 with a 1.75 ERA in 18 starts with a WHIP of 0.86 and 110 strikeouts in 102⅔ innings (9.64/9IP).

  1. Keep it up! We need a big surplus of fine starting pitchers to keep the big club winning and Mike Rizzo ever busy. Congratulations!

  2. And Tommy Milone wants to be traded after once again being the odd man out for Samardija and Hammels. Just went 6 – 0 and was demoted to AAA.

  3. Peric. Not surprising on perry .
    Beane won’t deal tommy with the way
    Pitching has been league wide on DL
    Nice to see Nic Lee getting back together
    @ GCL
    Jefry Rod back down to GCL. Too many NCAA arms
    To look @ @ auburn?
    Soul drummer. Another good Espino outing !

    1. Just reporting the games, sir. Just reporting the games with the jokey jokes. But Espino seems to be good folks. British might call him a fine bloke! The rZo says he best throw a lot of smoke, or he won’t be in MLB and he’ll be broke.

  4. Austin could throw I saw him 2 starts in Potomac, Godd quality arm that sits around 91 92 but he has great maturity and mound presence. Watch this kid
