Wynne named Frontier League Pitcher of the Week
The Frontier League has named Evansville Otters pitcher Randy Wynne the Pitcher of the Week following Opening Weekend.
Pointstreak, the official statistical provider of the Frontier League and the Independent Professional Baseball Federation, chooses the weekly award.
In earning the award, Wynne earned his first win of the season in Saturday's 6-1 win against the Southern Illinois Miners.
"Congrats to Randy for a well-deserved recognition of his outing," Otters manager Andy McCauley said.
"He was in total command of all of his pitches and attacked the zone. He worked ahead of hitters and got big outs when he had to."
"It feels great to receive this recognition," Wynne said. "I'm always focused on helping the team win but it's nice to be recognized."
Wynne tossed eight innings while striking out a career-high 13 batters. Wynne recorded 12 strikeouts on two occasions during the 2018 season, one of which came against the Miners.
