Charleston’s Luis Niebla Named Season’s Final SAL Pitcher of the Week

Becomes Third RiverDog in 2014 to Take Home League’s Pitcher of the Week Award

CHARLESTON, SC - Charleston RiverDogs pitcher Luis Niebla received the South Atlantic League Pitcher of the Week Award on Monday for games played August 25-September 1. Niebla spun a career-high seven scoreless innings and earned a win in his only outing of the season’s final week on Thursday, August 28 against the Greenville Drive.

A right-handed pitcher from Obregon, Mexico, Niebla started the RiverDogs home finale and fanned seven batters in a 10-0 Charleston victory over the Drive last Thursday. He allowed only three hits and did not walk anyone.

Niebla joins fellow pitchers Caleb Smith (April 21-27) and Jaron Long (May 26-June 1), as well as outfielder Dustin Fowler (June 9-15), as RiverDogs honored as either SAL Pitcher or Player of the Week this season.
