Homer named International League Pitcher of the Week
Right-hander Homer Bailey was the League's only pitcher to win two games without allowing a run last week, also leading the circuit with 14 strikeouts and finishing 2nd with 14.2 innings pitched.
Tuesday night in Pawtucket Bailey squared off against top Red Sox prospect Michael Bowden. Bailey turned in a masterpiece, limiting Pawtucket to four singles and two walks in 8.0 innings while striking out eight. Just once did the Red Sox manage to get a runner to third base as the Bats cruised to a 6-0 victory. Last night against Lehigh Valley, Bailey threw 6.2 scoreless innings, allowing seven hits and striking out six with no walks to pick up his sixth win of the season.
23-year-old Homer Bailey was a 1st round draft choice of Cincinnati in 2004.
