Sam Strickland Named Carolina League Pitcher of the Week
NORTH AUGUSTA, SC: Left-Handed Pitcher, Sam Strickland was awarded the Carolina League Pitcher of the Week following a phenomenal start against the Delmarva Shorebirds on Saturday.
In Saturday's 7-1 win over the Shorebirds, Strickland dealt 8 shutout innings while striking out 11 batters, both career-highs. His eight innings on the mound marked the longest start by a GreenJackets starting pitcher in 2022. He faced just three batters over the minimum allowing just two hits and one walk as part of the first quality start of his young career.
Strickland is the second Augusta pitcher to be named Pitcher of the Week joining former GreenJackets' hurler Royber Salinas who won the award twice.
The GreenJackets are back in action on Tuesday, August 9 as they make their first trip ever to Virginia Credit Union stadium to face the first-place Fredericksburg Nationals.
The tenth homestand of the season for the GreenJackets begins on Tuesday, August 16 against the Charleston RiverDogs (Tampa Bay Rays) with $2 TWOsday and First Responder Tuesday. The week continues with Warrior Wednesday, the Corona Bucket Special, and Baseball Bingo. Thursday is a double-header at SRP Park starting at 5:05 with a special appearance from the Dueling Pianos Group and Thirsty Thursday. The weekend begins with Sweetwater Night at the ballpark with specialty jerseys with an auction that will benefit North Augusta Forward/FROG in addition to Braves BUZZFest. The White Claw Pregame Concert Series starts off Saturday Night with live music from Greg Fortune from 4:30-5:30 with a postgame fireworks extravaganza to follow. The homestand wraps up Auggie's Birthday Bash as you can celebrate the birthday of the best mascot in CSRA!
