Mark Cohoon Named Eastern League Pitcher of the Week
Behind his complete game shut out and near no-hitter on Friday night against the Harrisburg Senators, Binghamton Mets starter Mark Cohoon has been named as the Eastern League Pitcher of the Week for the August 6th to August 12th time frame. The game on Friday night would prove to be the only one Cohoon pitched for the B-Mets, but the Burleson, Texas natives performace was strong enough to earn him the weekly honor, his first such award as a member of the Binghamton Mets in 2012.
On Friday night, Cohoon pitched all nine innings of the B-Mets 5-to-0 victory over the Senators, flirting with a no hitter into the seventh inning. It was only then that a bloop double by the Senators Justin Bloxom broke up the no no bid. Bloxom’s double was only one of two hits Cohoon gave up in the game enroute to his seventh win of the season.
Cohoon’s numbers on the week read one game started, nine innings pitched, no runs allowed, two hits, one walk, and a season high ten strikeouts. His record now stands at 7-and-8 with a 3.44 ERA.
Cohoon becomes the fourth Binghamton Met to win weekly honors in 2012, with fellow starter Greg Peavey, outfielder Matt den Dekker, and infielder Josh Rodriguez previously being named.
