Atlantic League Pitcher of the Year . . . . Brian Adams!
The regular season is over and the Patriots are in the midst of the Atlantic League Championship series against the Newark Bears. Brian finished the regular season with 15 wins, a 3.68 ERA, and 117 strikeouts which apparently earned him the honor of Pitcher of the Year!
To top it off, he pitched a great game in the first round of the playoffs (against the Camden Riversharks), allowing only 1 run in 8 innings. In the second round of the playoffs the Patriots lost the first game to the Newark Bears. Even though Brian didn't have his usual 4 days of rest he decided he really wanted to pitch the second game of the series (on 3 days rest). Once again he only allowed 1 run in 7 innings to get the win!
I'm so thankful the Lord has allowed Brian to have such a great season. It's been a fun and rewarding time. Let's hope he keeps up the good work in Mexico!
