Moore Named Pitcher Of The Week

 

SIOUX FALLS, SD — The Sioux Falls Canaries are pleased to announce that right-handed pitcher Ben Moore has been named the American Association Pointstreak Pitcher of the Week for June 16th.

Moore, 33, improved to 3-1 on the season after a pair of North Division wins against St. Paul and Fargo-Moorhead this past week.  He took the mound on June 10th, helping snap the Canaries 10-game skid with an impressive outing against the St. Paul Saints. The righty allowed four runs over seven innings and did not walk a batter while striking out nine to lead the Canaries to a 10-5 victory on his birthday.

Five days later he matched the victory with an equally impressive outing in game two of a Father’s Day doubleheader at Sioux Falls Stadium.  Moore picked up the complete game shutout, holding the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks to just five hits over seven innings, while striking out seven batters, walking two in a 4-0 victory.

For the week, Moore allowed two earned-runs on 13 hits while striking out 16 batters in 14 innings of work.  Already the all-time strike out leader in American Association history with 651 career K’s, Moore is currently second in the league this 43 strike outs in 2014.

The Canaries have won four of their last five games and continue their six-game home stand Tuesday against the Amarillo Sox at 7:05 PM.
