LINCOLN — Saltdogs RHP Pete Parise was named American Association Pitcher of the week Monday, after going 2-0 for Lincoln during its recent 5-1 home stand.
Parise allowed just two earned runs over 13 innings, surrendering 11 hits and two walks while leading the Saltdogs to victories over Sioux Falls and Gary.
The 28-year old from the Bronx, N.Y. has a share for the league lead with 10 wins, and ranks 10th in ERA at 3.51 in his first full season as a starting pitcher.
Parise threw a one-hit shutout July 5 against Fargo-Moorhead and has worked two complete games on the year.
