For the second time in his five year Major League career, Miami Marlins closer Steve Cishek was tabbed National League Player of the Week after recording five saves, eight strikeouts in five innings pitched while yielding just one earned run on two hits. Cishek shares the accolade with New York Mets starting pitcher Jacob deGrom who went 2-0 with a 0.68 earned run average.
A member of the 2007 Carson-Newman baseball team that won the South Atlantic Conference tournament, Cishek earned the honor for the week of July 28, 2013 when he also saved five contests.
The 2007 Carson-Newman graduate retired the side in order and punched out two batters in four of the five affairs. Cishek helped Miami take three of four against the Atlanta Braves, the team with the second-most wins in the National League with 58, earning three saves in four days.
Cishek closed out the week with two saves against the Houston Astros striking out four batters in two innings aiding the Marlins during a streak where Miami has won seven of its last eight games.
The 28 year-old is having another superfluous season for the Marlins as he notched 26 saves, tied for eighth best in baseball, in 29 chances while compiling a 4-5 record with a 3.38 ERA.
The six-foot-six righthander is on pace to set a new career-high in saves being on pace for 41 this season which would surpass the 34 that Cishek tallied in 2013.
