Pitcher of the Week, July 13-19: Anatanaer Batista


Lowell's Anatanaer Batista made two appearances out of the Spinners bullpen last week, working 7 shutout innings of 2 hit ball, striking out seven and walking none, earning a win and garnering SoxProspects.com Pitcher of the Week honors for July 13-19. Batista pitched 3 innings against Aberdeen (Orioles) July 15, allowing 1 hit and striking out 3 and getting the victory. Four days later he went 4 innings against Williamsport (Phillies), again allowing only a single hit and striking out four.
