M-Braves' Moran, Generals' Blash best of SL week

Mississippi's Gary Moran won the Southern League pitcher of the week, throwing eight shutout innings to clip Montgomery's Victor Mateo and his no-hitter.

Morgan gave up one hit over five innings to beat the Biscuits last Monday. He threw three innings Saturday against Huntsville and is 3-2 with a 3.71 ERA this year.

Jackson Generals outfielder Jabari Blash, who 11-for-24 with two home runs, six RBIs and three runs scored, was the week's top hitter. In 22 games with the Generals, Blash is hitting .315 and has a .457 on-base percentage.

Mississippi has had three weekly winners this year, all pitchers. The Generals have had five with three hitters and two pitchers.

Mateo gave up two unearned runs on four hits in 15 innings for the week.
