Players of the Week, August 17-23: Wilfred Pichardo & Adam Mills

Last week's players of the week voting saw one clear winner, Lowell's Wilfred Pichardo for Player of the Week, and one nail-biter as Pawtucket's Adam Mills edged Portland's Andrew Dobies by a single vote for Pitcher of the Week. Pichardo battered the opposition, posting a .450/.542/.600 line in 20 at-bats over 5 games with 3 doubles, 7 RBI, 8 runs and, most notably, 7 stolen bases, while Mills made the most of two starts (Aug. 19 at Gwinnett and Aug. 22 against Lehigh Valley) allowing 2 runs on 9 hits in 13 innings-pitched, striking out 10 while walking only 1. Mills allowed both runs at Gwinnett. In three starts with Pawtucket since being promoted August 9, Mills is 0-1, allowing 7 earned runs on 18 hits over 15 innings pitched, for a 4.20 ERA and .310 opponents average. He is 10-6 with a 4.24 ERA, allowing 59 earned runs on 139 hits in 125.1 innings pitched over 23 starts combined with Portland and Pawtucket. Pichardo is batting .296/.348/.383 with 2 home runs, 10 doubles, 1 triple and has stolen 23 bases in 31 attempts. He also was named New York-Penn League Player of the Week for the same period.
