The Frontier League has named Evansville Otters pitcher Braden Scott the Pitcher of the Week.

Pointstreak, the official statistical provider of the Frontier League and the Independent Professional Baseball Federation, chooses the weekly award.

In earning the award, Scott pitched a stellar outing on Saturday against the Gateway Grizzlies on the road.

Scott earned the win after throwing 7.2 shutout innings in the start.

The former Indiana Hoosier allowed only three hits and struck out seven batters.

Scott earned his third win of the season, and his 7.2 innings matched a team-high with pitcher Ryan O’Reilly back on July 14 against Florence.

The left-hander is in his first season with the Otters, signing with the club in late June.

He is currently 3-2 with a 2.91 ERA and 35 strikeouts in 34 innings pitched this year in the Frontier League. He has also allowed just eleven walks in his six starts this season.

Scott’s honor is the second Frontier League individual honor of the 2021 season for the Otters, as infielder Riley Krane was awarded Player of the Week following the opening week of the Frontier League season.

The Otters return to action Tuesday evening from Bosse Field against the Florence Y’alls at 6:35 p.m.

Scott would be slated to start again later in the week as part of a seven-game homestand for the Otters at Bosse Field.

It's a seasonable and dry start to Friday, but the heat is going to turn up this afternoon. Partly sunny skies will stick around with highs in the mid to upper 80s. The humidity may take the way it feels up a notch. Those southerly winds will help push in that moisture making it feel more like the low 90s. An isolated shower can't be ruled out, but any rainfall won't ruin our plans.
