Diablos Pitcher Named Player of the Week
Pointstreak, the official statistician of the American Association, has selected El Paso Diablos RHP Scott Hodsdon as the Pointstreak Pitcher of the Week. Hodsdon, 26, joined the Diablos just two weeks ago, and has been making his mark ever since.
Hodsdon tossed seven shutout innings in the 14-0 victory over the Grand Prairie AirHogs Saturday. He allowed only one walk and three hits and fanned four batters. The Rancho Cucamonga, CA resident is 1-2 on the year with a 4.15 ERA in 21 2/3 innings pitched.
After facing off against the Wichita Wingnuts on the road, the team will be back at Cohen Stadium for Fourth of July weekend. Don’t miss the Diablos battle the Lincoln Saltdogs at home for the only time this season July 2-July 5. And stick around after the game Saturday, Sunday, and Fourth of July’s Monday for fireworks after the game. Other promotions for the weekend include Quartermania, the Baseball Card Giveaway and Rodney Dangerfield Weekend Ticket Special. July 4th has the biggest fireworks show in the city, and tickets will sell out! Buy your tickets now at the Cohen Stadium Box Office, online at diablos.com, or call 915-755-2000.
