Cubs righthanded pitcher Jake Arrietta named NL Player of the Week

Jake Arrieta of the Chicago Cubs, who threw his first career no-hitter on Sunday, has been named National League Player of the Week for August 24th-30th.

Other noteworthy performances last week included San Francisco’s Marlon Byrd (.318, 4 R, 2 HR, 11 RBI, .773 SLG); Pittsburgh’s Andrew McCutchen (.462, 4 R, 12 H, 6 RBI, .533 OBP); Michael Cuddyer (.579, 11 H, 2 HR 7 RBI, 1.053 SLG) of the New York Mets; Washington’s Ryan Zimmerman (.261, 3 HR, 10 RBI, .652 SLG); and Lance Lynn (2- 0, 1.38 ERA, 13.0 IP) of the St. Louis Cardinals.

In recognition of his National League Player of the Week Award, Jake Arrieta will be awarded a watch courtesy of Game Time, the leader in licensed sports watches, available at MLB.com.

Arrieta posted a perfect 2-0 record and led the Majors with 20 strikeouts across his two outings last week. His 0.00 ERA was tied for lowest among qualifying pitchers and his 15.0 innings were tied for the most among Major League hurlers. On Sunday night, Arrieta held the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers hitless over 9.0 shutout innings en route to a 2-0 win, fanning 12 Dodger batters while issuing just one walk. He tossed 116 pitches (80 strikes) in the performance, in which he earned his 17th victory of the season and sixth in as many starts. The 29-yearold capped his no-hit gem by striking out the side in the ninth inning, becoming the first pitcher to finish a no-hitter in such a fashion since Sandy Koufax fanned the last six Cubs he faced in his perfect game in 1965 (Elias Sports Bureau). According to Elias, Arrieta also became the seventh pitcher in Major League history to toss a no-hitter after being on the losing end of a no-no earlier in the same season (he took the loss in Cole Hamels’ no-hitter for the Philadelphia Phillies on July 25th). Arrieta’s no-hitter, coupled with his win at San Francisco on Tuesday, August 25th, give him 14 straight quality starts, marking the longest such streak by a Cubs pitcher since Hall of Famer Greg Maddux posted 14 consecutive quality starts in 1992. This is his second career Player of the Week honor, having also been named NL Player of the Week for the week of July 6th-12th of this year.

Toronto Blue Jays 1B Edwin Encarnacion named AL Player of the Week

Toronto Blue Jays first baseman/designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion has been named the American League Player of the Week for the period ending August 30th.

Other noteworthy performances last week included Mike Moustakas (.423, 4 2B, 2 HR, 10 RBI) of the Kansas City Royals; Didi Gregorius (.455, 10 H, 2 HR, 10 RBI) of the Yankees; Kyle Seager (.300, 4 HR, 7 RBI, 22 TB) of the Seattle Mariners; Derek Holland (1-0, 2.40 ERA, 1 CG, 1 SHO) of the Texas Rangers; Joe Kelly (2-0, 1.84 ERA, 14.2 IP, 6 SO) of the Boston Red Sox; and Detroit’s Justin Verlander (1-0, 0.00 ERA, 1 CG, 1 SHO), who carried a no-hitter into the ninth inning of his August 26th start against the Los Angeles Angels.

In recognition of his American League Player of the Week Award, Edwin Encarnacion will be awarded a watch courtesy of Game Time, the leader in licensed sports watches, available at MLB.com.

Encarnacion batted .391 (9-for-23) with seven runs scored, two doubles, six home runs and 17 RBI over six games to earn his fifth career weekly honor, last winning with the Blue Jays on May 11, 2014. Edwin paced the Majors in home runs, RBI, slugging percentage (1.261), extra-base hits (8) and total bases (29).

On Saturday against the Detroit Tigers at the Rogers Centre, the Dominican Republic native went 3-for-5 with four runs scored, three home runs and nine RBI. It was his fourth multi-home run game of 2015 and the 21st of his career. Additionally, it marked his second career three-homer game, last accomplishing the feat on May 21, 2010 against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field. Included in his historic Saturday performance was his third grand slam of the season. The three grand slams match a single-season Toronto record, set by Carlos Delgado in 1997 and Darrin Fletcher in 2000. It was just the second time in club history that a Blue Jays player homered three times in a game with one being of the grand slam variety (Otto Velez on May 4, 1980 vs. Cleveland Indians). Moreover, the two-time AL All-Star has recorded an RBI in eight straight contests, tying the club record set by Willie Upshaw in 1983, Carlos Delgado in 2000 and 2003, and Matt Stairs in 2007. Spanning seven games from August 22nd – 29th, the 32-year-old slugger recorded 23 RBI, becoming just the second player in MLB history to ever do so. Hall of Famer Joe DiMaggio of the New York Yankees also posted 23 RBI over seven contests in 1939. The nine- RBI performance in Saturday afternoon’s game represents the most by any player in the Majors this season and also matches a club record, last accomplished by Roy Howell in 1977. Lonnie Chisenhall of the Cleveland Indians in 2014 was the last MLB player to do so. On Sunday, in the final game of the series with Detroit, Encarnacion connected with his 30th round-tripper of the 2015 campaign, 11 of which have come in August, to mark his fourth consecutive 30-homer season. He now has 35 RBI this month, breaking the Blue Jays record he shared with Carlos Delgado, who had 34 in June 2003. Sunday’s two-hit performance also extends his current, career-high hitting streak to 25 games, the longest streak in the Majors this season and the longest by a Blue Jay since Scott Rolen in 2009 (25).

NEW YORK (Aug. 28, 2015) — National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman today released the following statement regarding the passing of Hockey Hall of Famer Al Arbour:

“The National Hockey League deeply mourns the passing of Al Arbour, revered head coach of the dynastic New York Islanders.

“A four-time Stanley Cup champion as a player and a brilliant motivator and tactician as a coach, Al Arbour directed the Islanders’ rapid transformation from expansion team to NHL powerhouse — guiding them to four straight Stanley Cup championships, five consecutive appearances in the Stanley Cup Final and an astounding 19 consecutive playoff series victories. As it grieves the loss of a profound influence on coaching and on the game itself, the NHL sends its heartfelt condolences to Al’s family and friends, to his former teammates and to all the players he mentored.”
