Donn Roach Named Texas League Pitcher of the Week
San Antonio Missions starting pitcher Donn Roach has been named the Texas League Pitcher of the Week for the week of July 2-8. Roach becomes the second straight San Antonio hurler to win the award after Josh Geer earned the honors last week.
Roach made two starts during the week and went 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA while allowing just three hits in 11 innings. He walked three, struck out four, limited opposing batters to a .088 average and threw six, no-hit innings during his first Double-A start on July 2 vs. NW Arkansas.
The 22-year old native of Las Vegas, NV was promoted to the Missions from Class-A Lake Elsinore on June 21 and has made three total appearances for San Antonio with both of his starts coming last week.
