Archer Wins IL Pitcher of the Week Honors

We weren't the only ones who noticed that Chris Archer's last two starts were pretty good. Turns out they were the best in the International League.

To quote from the IL's press release:

Durham right-handed pitcher Chris Archer had won just one of his first six starts this season, but last week he was victorious twice and was 2nd in the League with 14 strikeouts to earn Pitcher of the Week honors. Archer went 6.0 strong innings Tuesday in the second game of a doubleheader at Syracuse. He held the Chiefs to one run on four hits as Durham went on to win 2-1. Archer looked even sharper on Sunday in a matchup with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees in Rochester. Archer again tossed 6.0 innings of one-run baseball, this time allowing just three hits and striking out a season-high nine batters. The Bulls won 3-1 to give Archer his club-best third victory on the season. He also leads all Durham pitchers with 40 strikeouts.
