FLORENCE, Ky. – Florence Y’alls starting pitcher Johnathon Tripp has been named Frontier League Pitcher of the Week.
Tripp made one start during the week, tossing a complete-game, 7-inning shutout on Saturday night at Wild Things Park in game one of a doubleheader against the Washington Wild Things.
In just his seventh start of the 2021 season, Tripp struck out six Wild Things and did not walk a batter. Washington recorded just three hits in the ballgame. The complete-game shutout was the first by a Florence pitcher this season.
On the season, the right hander is tied for the team lead in wins with six to add to his five saves. Tripp has walked just 11 batters in 60.1 innings pitched.
Florence took two-out-of-three against the Wild Things to begin a nine-game-in-ten-day road trip that continues on Tuesday night at the Sussex County Miners.
