Conlon Earns Eastern League Honors
PJ Conlon is the Eastern League Pitcher of the Week. The Binghamton Rumble Ponies' left-hander went 2-0 over the last week and gave up just one run over 13.1 innings on the mound. In his first season at the Double-A level Conlon is 7-7 with a 3.68 ERA in 19 starts for Binghamton.
On July 18th Conlon fired a shutout victory against the Akron RubberDucks on a three-hitter. He had eight strikeouts in a 13-0 win. Then on July 23rd Conlon pitched into the seventh inning, giving up just one run in a 3-1 Binghamton victory.
It is the second such honor for Conlon this season. He was a 13th round pick of the New York Mets in 2015. He was an Eastern League All-Star selection but did not play in the game earlier this month.
