A strong outing on the mound Friday earned Dailyn Martinez Spike of the Week honors.
In a 5-0 victory over Mahoning Valley, Martinez struck out three, walked two and gave up just two hits in seven shutout innings. During the game, he had a stretch of retiring 15 straight batters and never allowed a runner past second base.
The 6-foot-2, 22-year-old right-hander from Santiago, Dominican Republic, is in his second season with the Spikes and fouth season as a professional. He only pitched in one game with State College last season, earning a win.
This season he is 1-1 with a 5.23 ERA, striking out seven, walking three and allowing 11 hits and seven runs, six earned.
