CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Tom Sox righty Ethan Sutton (So., Cartersville, Ga./Georgia) was named the Valley League South Division Pitcher of the Week, the league announced Monday (June 17). Sutton is the second-straight Tom Sox player to be awarded with a weekly honor, following Cade Belyeu’s Player of the Week honor last week.

Sutton put together an outstanding week on the mound, putting together a 1.13 ERA across two appearances (one start) against the Covington Lumberjacks. In eight innings, he allowed only three hits and one earned run, walking two and striking out nine. Both of his appearances ended in Tom Sox wins.

Sutton has helped anchor a Tom Sox pitching staff which has been tops in the Valley League thus far with a 3.13 ERA. He ranks fourth on the team with ten strikeouts, five by the looking variety. He falls just short of qualifications for the league leaderboard (0.8 IP/game), but he would rank fourth in the league in ERA if he meet the qualification.

Sutton and the Tom Sox return home Tuesday night (June 18) when they host the Covington Lumberjacks on Tom Stock night. First pitch is set for 7 p.m., with festivities set to begin at 6 p.m.
