WEATHERFORD, Okla. (AP) — Former Southwestern Oklahoma State University pitcher Shane Martin has been named the Philadelphia Phillies' Minor League Pitcher of the Week.

Martin, a ninth-round selection of the Phillies in the 2013 First-Year Player Draft, earned the honor for the week of July22-28. It's the first Pitcher of the Week honor of his professional career.

In two starts, Martin was 1-0 with a 0.82 ERA in 11 innings pitched, allowing 10 hits and one walk while striking out 10 batters for the Williamsport CrossCutters.

Martin exhausted his eligibility in 2013 after one of the best seasons in Southwestern's NCAA Division II history. He anchored the Bulldogs' pitching staff, ending the year 11-2 with a 2.85 ERA. A Weatherford native, Martin was twice named the Great American Conference's Pitcher of the Week.
