RHP Asher Wojciechowski has been named Texas League Pitcher of the Week for April 15-21. Wojo held Tulsa to 4 hits over 5 scoreless innings in his start last Monday. He earned the victory on Saturday against Frisco, tossing four frames of shutout relief. Wojo did not issue a walk and struck out 8 over those 2 appearances, extending his scoreless innings streak to start the season to 18.
The former first-round pick out of the Citadel paces the circuit with a 0.00 ERA. Wojo has not allowed a run since the fourth inning on August 20, 2012 at Springfield, a span that covers seven appearances and 31.0 innings.
It is the longest streak in Corpus Christi Hooks history, surpassing the 26.0 consecutive scoreless frames that Chance Douglass posted from May 18-June 5, 2007. Wojciechowski is the first Hooks player to earn a 2013 Texas League weekly award.
