Another Spirit Pitcher Wins PoTW Honors

I got bored so i made this really quick.....but here's the story that accompanies it (from

"The North Shore Spirit are quietly stockpiling awards this season. Converted starter Dennis Robinson has earned pitcher of the week honors for the week ending August 12, PA-Sportsticker – official statistician of the CanAm League has reported. The right hander joins Chris Farley, Ryan Bicondoa (2), and Derek Drage as the other members of weekly honorees the Spirit have had this season.

The interesting tidbit regarding the award is that Robinson only started one game for North Shore over the week, but it was an impressive one. In a road start against the Sussex Skyhawks on August 10, Robinson tossed a complete game shut-out gem, scattering four hits while striking out five and walking none.

Robinson was made a starter for the ball club after Bryan Morse was traded to Brockton and Chris Farley’s contract was sold to the Yankees organization. Robinson made his first start on July 18, and picked up a win against the Worcester Tornadoes.

“D-Rob” as he is known around the ballpark garners a 4-3 record on the season (4-1 as a starter) with one save to his credit. His 2.97 earned run average overall is third among Spirit starters behind Matt Bishop (2.20) and Bicondoa (2.96).

Congrats;ve earned it.
Nows here's something I threw together really quick....and shall for every PoTW the league selecets from the Spirit as I personally like this little thing. =]
