After a two week shutout on league awards, the Cubs are back on the hype train today as South Bend (for now) pitcher DJ Herz won the Midwest League Player of the Week award, as you could probably tell from the title.
As I mentioned earlier today in The Breakdown, Herz threw five scoreless innings, allowed 3 hits, and struck out an amazing 12 batters including 10 out of 11. Good job and congratulations go out to DJ!
You may now return to your regularly scheduled day.
It’s funny that he didn’t even earn Starting Pitcher of the Day with that performance..
He did – right here – https://northsidebound.com/2022/06/01/players-of-the-day-for-june-1-2002-all-hail-dj-herz/
We gave it to him the day he pitched rather than when the game was finished.
There’s an off chance I was wrong about my prior comment. If I was wrong I apologize. I used a different source for my information, and the article may have been from the previous day.
Well, you had the country right. I just had a brain fart. Sorry. But I have seen it spelled two ways. The first one was from The Cub Reporter.
