>CAVALIERS ACE SHEETS NAMED PITCHER OF THE WEEK
Houston, TX: The defending champion Houston Hitmen announced today that pitcher Cliff Sheets was named pitcher of the week for week 1 of the USMLB season.
In five starts, Sheets went 5-0 with a 3.00 ERA. He struck out 42 batters and walked 14 batters while holding opposing batters to a .261 batting average.
“Sheets continues his dominance in the league,” first year bench coach Cleatus Hill remarked. “He’s been the staff ace of this team since the beginning, and we’re sure he will continue to be consistent as he has proven to do season after season.”
Sheets is going for his third consecutive 20-win season after posting 21-3 and 21-9 records in the past two seasons. His ERA continues to go down as he progresses in his young career and will only continue to get better. Sheets is at the prime of his career.
The Hitmen will take on the San Diego Mafia (10-9) in a four-game set starting tonight before hosting the Post Doctoral Fellows (10-10).
