DURHAM, NC- The official statistician of the American Association, Pointstreak, has announced that Winnipeg Goldeyes LHP Nick Hernandez (pictured) has been named this week’s Pointstreak Pitcher of the Week for the week ending August 17.

This is the second such honor for Hernandez, who also won for the week ending June 29. The former University of Tennessee Volunteer was the American Association Pitcher of the Month for June as well.

He returned to the mound on Sunday and threw seven shutout innings in the Goldeyes’ 14-0 drubbing of the Sioux Falls Canaries. He struck out six while scattering two hits and two walks.
