Pitcher of the Week
Buddy Borden had big shoes to fill when taking over the number one spot in the rotation following the promotion of Blake Snell to Double-A. But he has done it well, giving the Stone Crabs two quality starts in two outings since being added to the starting rotation. The biggest of which came in the first game of Wednesday’s double header in which Borden tossed the second no-hitter in Stone Crabs history. A complete game no-hitter in which he only allowed three baserunners all game. Borden is now 4-1 with a 2.54 ERA and 24 strikeouts in 8 games this season.
