Kevin McGovern Given PURE Performance Pitcher Honors
The Minor League Sports Report and This Week in the Association announce that Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks LHP Kevin McGovern has been named as PURE Performance Pitcher of the Week for Week 3 of the 2021 American Association season. This is the second time McGovern has been chosen for the award.
The left-hander made just one start during the week, but he made the most of it, earning a complete-game victory when he allowed one run on three hits in a 5-1 victory over the Kane County Cougars on June 5. McGovern retired the first four batters of the game, but Gavin LaValley put the Cougars on the board with his first homer of the season.
From there, the RedHawks starter was in complete control. He dominated Kane County, striking out 10 while allowing just two more hits over the final 7.2 innings. McGovern finished with three hits and a walk allowed. He closed the contest in style, striking out the side to finish off the game. Of his 114 pitches, 80 went for strikes.
The victory moved McGovern to 4-0 this season. He leads the American Association in several categories, including victories. The left-hander is also first in strikeouts (37), complete games (2), and innings pitched (32.0). He is also the only starter this season to toss a complete-game shutout.
For earning PURE Performance Pitcher of the Week, Kevin McGovern will receive a check for $100 from PURE. McGovern was chosen as the PURE Performance Pitcher of the Week in Week 1 and was named as the PURE Performance Pitcher of the Month for May. Teammate Correlle Prime was selected as the Player of the Week for Week 2.
