Alexander Smit Dispatches - Pitcher of the Week!
"Beloit Snappers starting pitcher Alexander Smit was named the Midwest League Pitcher of the Week for the week of August 7-13. Smit pitched seven scoreless innings with 11 strikeouts and allowed one hit in an August 10 start versus Fort Wayne. Smit no-hit the Wizards for 6 1/3 innings before Will Venable reached base on an infield single, the only hit Smit allowed. Beloit won the game 6-3 and went on to sweep the Wizards."
QUOTE OF THE WEEK: "He was great and had great stuff. He's got good numbers. We had a lot of strikeouts. I think [his fastball] was deceptive. Guys were having trouble picking it up. Give the credit to him. He's the first guy we've seen in a while that we couldn't get anything going off." -- Wizards manager Randy Ready told the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette about Smit.
