LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Louisville Bats starting pitcher Tejay Antone (pronounced T.J. ann-tone) has been named the International League Pitcher of the Week for August 26-September 1.

In 2 starts, Antone went 2-0 with a 1.29 ERA, allowing just 2 earned runs in 14.0 innings. He walked one batter and struck out 19.

On August 27 vs. Columbus, the right-hander threw 7.0 scoreless innings, walking one and striking out 9 in a 6-0 Bats win. It was the only instance of a Louisville starter tossing at least 7.0 scoreless innings at home this season.

On September 1 vs. Indianapolis, Antone went 7.0 innings for the second straight start, allowing a pair of runs on 3 hits, walking none and striking out 10 in an 8-2 Bats win. The 10 strikeouts tied a career-high, and his ninth of the game set a Louisville franchise single-season record with its 1,130th strikeout.

Antone also recorded his first career extra-base hit, when he doubled off Indianapolis reliever Jesus Liranzo.

The 25-year-old is the third Bats pitcher, and second in the last 3 weeks, to win the IL Pitcher of the Week award this season. Antone joins fellow right-handers Lucas Sims (July 1-7) and Vladimir Gutierrez (August 12-18).
