Ricky Nolasco co-Player of the Week

New, 3 comments

Ricky Nolasco was named co-Player of the Week .

Nolasco didn't come up short on Monday. He joined Pirates catcher Ryan Doumit as the Bank of America co-Players of the Week.

Nolasco went 2-0 with a 1.23 ERA and 15 strikeouts in two starts last week to win the award for the first time in his three-year career. Doumit hit .400 with an NL-leading four home runs and seven RBIs and also took the award for the first time.

Nolasco, who gave up two runs in 14 2/3 innings last week, has now won five of his last six starts and six of his last seven decisions. On June 10 against the slugging Phillies, Nolasco didn't allow a run in his six-inning outing.

Nolasco and Doumit will be awarded suitably engraved Swiss Timepieces by Tourneau in recognition of their accomplishment.

Congratulations Ricky!
