Pitcher receives OKC’s second weekly honor of the season for period of July 22–28
One day after making his Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark debut, Dodgers pitcher Dustin May was named PCL Pitcher of the Week for July 22–28.
In his OKC Dodgers home debut, but fifth Triple-A start July 28, May held Memphis to one run and three hits over 6.0 innings in Bricktown. He issued two walks and recorded six strikeouts in the Dodgers’ 8–2 victory.
He allowed back-to-back singles to open the game then retired 16 of the next 17 Memphis batters he faced, including 13 straight at one point.
May became the first OKC pitcher this season to win PCL Pitcher of the Week the following day, and was the second consecutive OKC player to receive a weekly honor from the league after infielder Gavin Lux took home PCL Player of the Week honors for July 15–21.
During the week of his league recognition, May made two starts, going 2–0, and allowing one run, six hits and three walks over 12.0 IP with 10 strikeouts.
He pitched six scoreless frames July 23 in Nashville before making his home debut July 28 against Memphis and allowed one run over 6.0 innings.
After being promoted from Double-A Tulsa June 27, May made five total starts with OKC, going 3–0 with a 2.30 ERA over 27.1 innings pitcher. He held opponents to a .212 average with nine walks against 24 strikeouts.
The Los Angeles Dodgers selected May’s contract Aug. 2 and he made his Major League debut that night at Dodger Stadium against San Diego.
He pitched 5.2 innings, allowing four runs (three earned) and nine hits. May did not issue a walk, recorded three strikeouts and induced two double plays in the Dodgers’ 5–2 defeat.
