Riefenhauser nets Southern League award

Biscuits reliever C.J. Riefenhauser, with 7 1/3 no-hit innings over three appearances, was named the Southern League's pitcher of the week today.

Chattanooga outfielder Joc Pederson won hitter of the week.

Riefenhauser has a streak of 9 1/3 shutout innings after Sunday's three-inning effort that included the only baserunner to reach against him the past week. It was via a walk.

Riefenhauser has an 0.73 ERA in seven games with five hits allowed and 10 strikeouts in 12 1/3 innings.

Pederson was 11-for-27 with seven runs scored and five RBIs over the last seven days. On Wednesday, he homered twice in the Lookouts' 5-4 win over Birmingham.

Pederson is hitting .318 in 17 games with team highs with five home runs and 12 RBIs.
