Milton tossed six shutout innings, allowing just two hits and a walk in a victory at Iowa on April 21 before pitching another six shutout frames in yesterday's win at New Orleans. In his most recent outing, the left-hander had a no-hitter through 5.1 frames before finishing his six-innings of work by allowing just two hits and two walks while fanning two. Over the two outings, opposing hitters are batting just .103 (4-for-39) against Milton.
The former Major League All-Star becomes just the sixth Isotopes pitcher to claim PCL Pitcher of the Week honors in team history.
