LAREDO, TEXAS (KGNS) - One man on the Lemurs roster that got some good news is starting pitcher Ryan Beckman.
The right hander becomes the first from Laredo to win a player of the week award this season.
Beckman has been named the American Association's top hurler after going one and oh in his last two starts.
In those outings he would toss 17 innings, striking out 15 batters while not giving up a single run.
After a rough start to the year Beckman has seen his ERA drop over two runs to just .92.
Beckman is scheduled to take the hill again on Thursday in the series finale against Joplin.
