Harol Gonzalez, a right-handed starting pitcher for the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, has been selected as the Eastern League Pitcher of the Week for the period of May 6th-May 12th. The 6'0", 160 lb. hurler started one game for the Rumble Ponies last week and had a record of 1-0 with six strikeouts and a 0.00 ERA. Gonzalez, who is a native of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, made his lone start of the week on Wednesday night at Harrisburg and combined with reliever Ryder Ryan to throw the first no-hitter by the Binghamton franchise since the 2006 season in a 7-0 victory. Gonzalez struck out six batters and walked two over 6.2 innings of work. Ryan closed out the game with 2.1 perfect innings of relief to preserve the no-hitter.
The 24-year old ranked first among all Eastern League pitchers in batting average against (.000) last week and tied for the lead in ERA (0.00). He also finished ranked among the weekly league leaders in WHIP (0.30-2nd), wins (1-tied 2nd), and innings pitched (6.2-tied 8th). Harol, who has a record of 3-0 with 30 strikeouts and a 2.88 ERA in five games for the Rumble Ponies this season, was signed by the New York Mets as a non-drafted free agent on March 26, 2014.
