Heath Rollins has been virtually unhittable most of the season and this week was no different as the righty racked up his fourth Pitcher of the Week award. Rollins made sure Columbus earned a playoff berth by pitching the first complete game of his career. He went seven innings, giving up an unearned run on four hits without a walk. Rollins became the first pitcher in the SAL to reach 17 wins since Fausto Carmona in 2003. Rollins is one of three Minor League pitchers with 17 victories this season.
Rollins was also named Pitcher of the Week two weeks ago, on July 15 and on May 27. Rollins is set to open the South Atlantic League Southern Division series tomorrow night against Augusta.
