Charleston RiverDogs pitcher Luis Niebla received the South Atlantic League Pitcher of the Week Award on Monday for games played August 25-September 1. Niebla spun a career-high seven scoreless innings and earned a win in his only outing of the season's final week on Thursday, August 28 against the Greenville Drive.
A right-handed pitcher from Obregon, Mexico, Niebla started the RiverDogs home finale and fanned seven batters in a 10-0 Charleston victory over the Drive last Thursday. He allowed only three hits and did not walk anyone.
Niebla joins fellow pitchers Caleb Smith (April 21-27) and Jaron Long (May 26-June 1), as well as outfielder Dustin Fowler (June 9-15), as RiverDogs honored as either SAL Pitcher or Player of the Week this season.
The 2015 season will begin at Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park as the RiverDogs are scheduled to host a seven-game homestand that starts with Opening Day on Thursday, April 9. 2015 RiverDogs season tickets are on sale now.
