Thomas Burbank Named CRCBL Pitcher of the Week for June 24, 2019
From the CRCBL website on 6/24/19 http://pointstreaksites.com/view/calripkenleague/home-page-374
After starting the year 5-1, the Giants immediately followed with six straight losses. Over the course of that stretch, Jeff Rabberman's team failed to get consistent starting pitching. Thomas Burbank (Texas) changed that. His start against the Grays on June 20 provided exactly what the Giants desperately needed. Burbank allowed four hits and two runs over his seven innings on the mound. He struck out seven batters and walked none. Burbank recorded the win as the Giants defeated the Grays 7-4, a win which ended the six game losing streak. It was a start that led to the beginning of a better stretch of Giants pitching, as the team has won three of their last five games.
