Low-A Lake County right-handed pitcher Austin Adams was named the Midwest League's Pitcher of the Week for the period ending May 24-30. During that time he pitched in two games and went 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and in 9.0 innings allowed no runs, three hits, no walks and had 11 strikeouts. He was the Indians fifth round pick in the draft last year. He is the second Lake County played to receive a weekly award this season as catcher Chun Chen was named the batter of the week for the period from May 10-16.

Last Monday, he shutdown the South Bend Silver Hawks for four shutout one-hit innings. This past Saturday he came into the game in the fifth innings and proceeded to throw five shutout two-hit innings. He was actually working on a combined no-hitter with left-hander Vidal Nuno who started the game and went four innings before giving way to Adams because of his pitch count, and Adams carried the no-hitter until he allowed a two-out single in the eighth inning.
